AU Payroll | Payment Summary Details Report - Show period report run for
The Payment Summary Details Report needs to clearly show to/from dates on the report. If I run several Payment Summary Details Reports today for multiple financial years, all reports are titled exactly the same: Payment Summary Details as at Todays Date. There is no way to tell which financial year these figures belong to. I cannot send this to clients to verify because they can't tell which period they're looking at. This would not pass an audit.

All payroll reports need to show the dates of the pay week payments belong to - eg Pay Date 31/08/23 - the period this payment is for needs to be shown (pay period 24/08/2023 to 30/08/2023)
We employ Apprentices and do receive some Government funding for our apprentices. The government agencies require to see the pay week payments relate to. Without this, we don't receive funding. MYOB can show pay week dates along with payment dates on all their payroll reports.

Yes. I just submitted case CX0012992654 for reporting period missing from Payroll Summary Details Report.
Just having the "as at date" does not make sense if you are not able to also include period being reported.
If you create this report for auditors in July or August and are not able to demonstrate that the reporting period is for 01 July 2021 to 30 June 2022 then the report fails the audit requirement.

Yep, my auditors asked me exactly this question last month - they were not impressed.

Commonsense to put the related date on the report!
