You can generate electronic lodgements for your payroll years from the Reporting section of Indigo Payroll.

To process an electronic lodgement for a year:

  1. In the left sidebar of Indigo, click Payroll.
  2. In the Reporting section, click Electronic Lodgements.
  3. Click on Insert in the functions bar.
  4. In the Generate Electronic Lodgement pop-window, select the year.
  5. Click Generate.

You can then save the SS and F3 files names for the given electronic lodgement. These files are already in the format required by the government, hence there is no need to open and amend any of the files. You can log on the CFR Website and submit this files accordingly.

A report is also available to show you what is within the file. This should not be uploaded however the Electronic Lodgement report totals are very important as these figures (including the number of employees) should be inserted on the CFR Website. The FS7 figures are not needed as the Electronic Lodgement report has all the totals needed.

Note: If calculations have changed after the Electronic Lodgement generation, you would need to regenerate the Electronic Lodgement by clicking on the Regenerate button.
