Holiday Leave, WorkCover etc not showing on Income Statement

Since we did the STP2 update the Holiday Leave, WorkCover Top-Up, Unused Leave payouts are not showing on the Income Statement for the employee.

We had to make a change in the 22-23 year (an adjustment had been made that wasn't correct so I asked payroll to change it back to the original values and re-issue the payment summary). The total Gross Earnings now doesn't match payroll records as it isn't including Holiday Leave, WorkCover etc. The 23-24 Income Statements that I then ran as a test also don't include this.

Is this correct? Why would this be the case when it is all taxable income?

    Hi Rosie

    Are your referring to the Income Statements in the employee myGov accounts or the old Payment Summaries that can be generated from within the program ?

    Unfortunately, the old Payment Summaries can no longer be used as they're not STP2-compatible. This is because they can only report the Payroll Items that are mapped to the old categories (eg when most gross payments were just mapped to the one Gross Payments label), not the new, disaggregated ones 😬

    If you're referring to the display in STP2 & the employees' Income Statements in their myGov, if the Gross amounts don't match up with your program payroll, this means that one or more of your Payroll Items has not been mapped correctly for STP2.

    When you say "Workcover", is this workers compensation on-paid to employees ? If so, it has its own ("Leave") categor(ies) in STP2, depending on whether the employee is working or not working.

    Annual Leave & Long Service Leave also have their own specific category & also a separate category it it's unused Leave that's being paid out on Termination.

    Attached is the ATO STP2 mapping table with the applicable Reckon Tax Tracking Types for each Payment Type:

    Thankyou Shaz! That is very helpful! What would you recommened if needing to make an adjustment in 22-23 seeing we now can't issue her with a new Payment Summary as it doesn't include the earnings from Annual Leave or WorkCover.

    Thanks again, Rosie

    If you have done your STP finalisation the employees can see their income statement on their MyGov account.
