You may need to update your pay rates, oncosts or charge rates for the new financial year if:
- You have employees who are receiving rate increases effective from 1 April
- You need to update oncost rates to take into account changes to ACC rates (if applicable)
- You need to update charge rates due to agreed changes or increases to ACC rates (if applicable)
The steps to how you amend your pay and charge rates will depend on if you manage your rates directly in Astute. If you manage your rates in your RMS, you will need to amend the rates there.
