System Default Pay Rates Explained (Pay Types)

Pay Rates are used on pay lines when processing a pay run, in addition to the required Allowances and Deductions. We have provided the most commonly needed Pay Rates as System Defaults (also called Templates) used "as is" or copied and modified to suit your requirements.

 

For ease of use, Pay Rates are in separate categories:

  • Worked - Includes all the typical pay types you would need to pay the actual hours worked by your Payee (e.g. Ordinary Time, Overtime etc.).
  • Bonuses and Commissions -  Once-off payments for incentives (e.g. Overtime Bonus, Commission on Sales)
  • Leave - Designed for when a Payee is either taking or cashing out some or all of their leave entitlements.
  • Back Payments - Used when a Payee is underpaid to ensure the correct PAYGW Calculation is applied.
  • Termination -  These Pay Types are not available for selection until Cease Employment is used within the pay run. The Cessation Reason determines which Pay Types are available.
  • Reimbursements - Repay the Payee for expenses incurred and not included in their Income Statement.
  • Adjustments - Increases or reduces the relevant value within the pay run (PAYGW, Employer SG and RESC). The result is reported, but not the individual action.

With Single Touch Payroll Phase 2, there have been significant changes to the reporting of Pay Rates. Previously all Pay Rates were reported as part of Gross. A majority of Pay Rates are now reported separately with the use of the following codes:

 

An * indicates a Tuple; else, a Fact within the STP file used when reporting to the ATO.
