Generate Electronic Files for Amended PAYG Summaries

Use the PR PAYG Summary Process and PR ETP Summary Process forms to generate electronic files (e-files) for submission of amended PAYG summaries.

Note: Prior to generating electronic files, make sure you have already reviewed and/or edited PAYG items and amounts as necessary. If you have not, you should do so before proceeding here. For more information, see Review/Update PAYG Information for Employees and PR ETP Employee Amounts. You can also print the PR PAYG Payment Summary - Individual Non-Business and the PR PAYG Payment Summary - Employee Termination Payment to make sure that all of the necessary information has been entered and is correct.
The file you create will include both amended PAYG Individual Non-Business (INB) summaries and PAYG Employment Termination Payment (ETP) summaries as applicable.

  1. Open the PR PAYG Summary Process or PR ETP Summary Process form.
