Quantity column on pay slip incorrect
For our payroll, we record our employees' hours against Customer:Job and Class, and use these hours to create the pay run.
STP2 is forcing us to disaggregate all-purpose allowances paid to our employees, which means that I now have to split these allowances off and list them as additions instead of including them combined with the hourly wages. I've set up new Payroll Items for these allowances, and checked the box "Track Expenses by Job".
I have created a "dummy" employee and done a dummy pay run to check this works, so that the now-'allowances' will continue to get matched against the applicable job and class.
But the Quantity column is giving the incorrect number (see this sample payslip; the quantities should read 38 / 2 / 5 / 12 / 38 / 38. The actual amounts are correct. This is hopeless for our employees; they (and I) will get confused. If I don't use "Track Expenses by Job", the quantities are correct.
From looking on this forum I see that this is a bug in Reckon, and that the quantity column only seems to work in the Standard payslip template (but that as soon as that standard payslip is modified the bug returns). The other suggestion which John made regarding having multiple allowances with slightly different names (eg for Project A/Project B) is not an option - we could end up with more than a hundred different instances of each allowance.
Does anyone know of any other workarounds which can make the quantity column work? And if not, how do we get Reckon to fix this known bug as a priority? Now the STP2 requirements are forcing employers to use the additions section it is vital that this works; otherwise the functionality of being able to track expenses by job is lost. That is; unless there is another workaround, then we have a choice of complying with ATO STP2 requirements and providing accurate payslips to employees OR being able to track expenses by job. Not both. Given that it might only be a bug fix that is needed and not a new feature, can we get this fixed?
