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

To process an electronic lodgement for a year:

  • From the Payroll tab in the left side bar, click Electronic Lodgements within the Reporting section.

  • Click on Insert in the functions bar.

  • In the Generate Electronic Lodgement pop-up box, select the year and click Generate.

You can then save the SS and F3 file 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 to the CFR Website and submit these 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.
