LSL Lump Sum Payment on Termination

GRENEWS Member Posts: 2 ✭

Have reported a Long Service Leave Lump Sum under "Allowances" and Tax Withheld under "Deductions" but neither are accounted for in "End of Financial Year' summary for the terminated employee. What am I doing wrong?

    Unused LSL paid out isn’t an Allowance & should be mapped to Lump Sum A (if the LSL was accrued since Aug 1978) or Lump Sum B (if accrued prior to Aug 1978)

    PAYG should be linked to PAYG Tax Withheld, not Deductions 😬

    Amend your Payroll Items accordingly & the Paycheque should then flow through correctly in STP 😁
