Employees who are paid in a Supplier arrangement are set up as a contractor, and they must be linked to a Supplier profile. Before you set up the contractor profile, you need to create the Supplier Profile.
Assign a Supplier to a New Contractor
When a new draft contractor profile is being created, you will need to assign the Supplier.
Go to Required Details > Employment Conditions and set the Pay Type as ‘Subcontractor with ABN’.
Go to Additional Details > Subcontractor Entity and set the Supplier in the Subcontractor drop-down.
Click Save & Activate.
You’ll be required to set other mandatory fields during the initial setup of the subcontractor. These will highlight in red if they have not been filled in when you click ‘Save & Activate.
Assign a Supplier to an Existing Contractor
You can change the Supplier linked to a contractor profile by following the steps below:
Go to Users > Employees > select the employee > Employment.
Select the Supplier in the Subcontractor Entity drop-down list.
The Pay Type in an employee profile will lock once a contractor has been paid, so you can’t edit the engagement type after this.
If you have paid an employee under one Pay Type and then engage them as a different type, you will need to create a separate employee record.
If you change the Supplier associated with an employee while the employee has outstanding pays, you will need to recalculate these pays so that they are linked to the new Supplier.
