    Hi Tamika,

    You have to think outside the square on this one - bear with me.

    Set up an ALLOWANCE (I can hear what you are thinking)

    Payroll Item List > New Item
    Name - Salary Packaging Laptop
    Link it to Wages
    Link it to Gross Payments for Payment Summary
    Tick the appropriate boxes for PAYG & State Payroll Tax
    Based on Quantity - Yes (this is the sneaky part)
    Set the amount to be deducted - or leave blank and set up on each employee masterfile
    Tick or Untick Super - different organisations have different agreements - Employer may legally only have calculate Super Guarantee Charge on the Adjusted Gross (After Salary Sacrifice/Salary Packaging)
    Attach the item to the appropriate employee
    Process their pay
    Edit Quantity for Allowance for Salary Packaging to -1 (that is negative one)
    This reduces the Gross Wages, reduces PAYG, will adjust Super Guarantee if Ticked

    Hope this helps.

    How do you then process through accounts so that the business can take advantage of the GST component?
