System Default Allowances Explained (Pay Types)

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

 

For ease of use, Allowances are separated into their own category and are then split into:

  • Reportable - Pay Hour or Pay Period Allowances the Payee is entitled to under their Award or Agreement which are reportable to the ATO.
  • Non-Reportable - Pay Hour or Pay Period Allowances the Payee is entitled to under their Award or Agreement which are not reported to the ATO.

With Single Touch Payroll Phase 2, there have been significant changes to the reporting of Allowances. Previously some Allowances were reported as part of Gross, and others were reported separately with the following codes: 

  • CAR – Car expense.
  • TRANSPORT – Award Transport.
  • LAUNDRY – Laundry Allowance.
  • MEALS – Overtime Meal Allowance.
  • TRAVEL – Travel Allowance.
  • OTHER – Other Allowances.

All Allowances are now reported separately by using the following codes:

  • CD – Cents per Kilometre.
  • AD – Award Transport Payments.
  • LD – Laundry Allowance.
  • MD – Overtime Meal Allowance.
  • RD – Travel Allowance.
  • TD – Tool Allowance.
  • OD – Other Allowances.
  • KN – Task Allowances.
  • QN – Qualification Allowances.

 

🎯 To learn more, please refer to the ATO for detailed guidance for separately reported Allowance Types.
