Due to the Back Packer Tax changes which came into affect on the 01.01.2017 I am trying to print 2 payment summaries out for an employee, one up to 31.12.16 then one from 01.01.2017 to show the tax paid during those periods, but cant find a way to print payment summaries out by period only allows one per employee per year.  Does anyone know a way to do this.

Hello Peter you need two cards.  One for before 31/12 and one after 1/1/17

Hello Peter, yes sorry, I spoke another software language.  You need to set up that employee with 2 names on the file. so the one employee will have two names.  The one before the 31/12, and then one for after 01/1/17.  Take out any pays in the name prior to 31/12 and enter them to the new one for after 01/1/17  for the holiday backpacker with the tax rate applicable.  
This is the only way you can get two payment summaries and do it correctly.

Thanks Pam yes that makes sense, to shift the pays will this have to be done via journals or is there an easier way to shift the payments as I cant find a way of doing this.  Appreciate your help.

You cannot do this via journal, it will not end up on the payment summary.  You must delete your pays that are in the incorrect name and put them in the correct one for your payment summaries.
