You’ll need to make sure that your Pay Items, Superannuation, Deduction, and Contribution items have been set up correctly so that any required pay data is included in your Payroll Tax calculations.
Pay items that have been set up with Australia as the region will include an option to mark them as Payroll Tax Exempt.
If this checkbox is ticked at the time a pay run is marked as Paid, any pay data linked to the pay item will be excluded from Payroll Tax calculations.
If this checkbox is not ticked at the time a pay run is marked as Paid, pay data linked to the pay item will be included in the Payroll Tax calculations.
Configure Pay Items for Payroll Tax
To edit the Payroll Tax Exempt setting for a pay item:
Go to Config > Payroll > Pay Items.
Click a Pay Item name to view its configuration.
Under Super and Taxes, tick or untick the ‘Payroll Tax Exempt’ checkbox, as required.
- Click Save.
You will need to check the configuration settings in the following places:
- Config > Payroll > Superannuation;
- Config > Payroll > Deductions
In each of these reports, click the name of the item you would like to view and scroll to the Payroll Tax Settings section. If the checkbox for any item is ticked, the item will be excluded from your Payroll Tax calculations.
