We track our profit and loss using CLASS tracking.  I can't seem to get the JOBKEEPER TOP UP to track to a class.  I know its probably how I have set it up but can someone advise the best way please asap.  Also can this be back dated?

I can't think of any easy way to do this either.
My only suggestion is:
  1. run pays as per normal, and then
  2. process a general journal where you credit the expense account that you are using for jobkeeper (leave class blank) and then debit the same account but enter the class(es) that you wish to use
  3. no reason you couldn't back date this
Hopefully somebody can offer a more elegant solution

Thank you appreciate your quick response.  I will do that if I can't find as you put a more elegant solution.  I just got an extension on my reporting deadline so hopefully I can get it automated.  Stay safe

If you tick the box on the payroll item for Track Expenses by Job - then the topup item will pick up whatever classes you are using on the paycheque.  see below:

Thank you Linda.  I should have mentioned that I have done this now BUT after I processed a couple of weeks pay.  will it do it retrospective?  Hope that makes sense.

Just go into each of the pays you want to fix, unlock them...save them again... and it should update?  try one and check?  If it doesnt - then make a small change - change it back... then save...
