Why am I receiving this error message
You have declared a positive amount in payroll withholding tax for an income recipient for the month.
You may have received the error message because you have:
used the wrong prefix for the amount you specified for total withholding tax payable. The payroll withholding tax for the income recipient for a month must be a negative amount or 0.
Do I have to correct the error
Yes, the a-melding contains errors and/or omissions which you must correct.
You must correct the error by the deadline for submission of the a-melding for the calendar month for which you received the error message.
How to correct the error
- Change the payroll withholding tax for the income recipient for the month to a negative amount.
- Submit the a-melding when you have corrected the error. If you use a payroll system, check with your system supplier if you are unsure how to make corrections in your system.
If you have submitted several a-meldings for the month, it may be a good idea to extract a reconciliation report (A06/A07). This will give you an overview of the amounts that have been reported for the month, both as totals and per income recipient.
