Can someone please advise if i am able to change the Payroll tax % from the default4.85%(VIC), as we are classed as regional employer and the rate is reduced to 1.2125%

Thank you

    Hello @msd71019 ,

    Changing the Payroll Tax globally in Reckon is not supported to my knowledge.

    You can modify each individual employee's tax rates in their employee settings, however, we would recommend conferring with your accountant and/or bookkeeper before modifying these settings.

    Kind regards,

    Hi @msd71019

    It used to be possible to edit the file - as described in the below article - so I'm assuming this should still be the case:
