You will be selecting the JK
Topup Allowance Item in the Other Payroll
Items section on the Paycheque.
However, if your employees
have been stood down & any are permanent (eg full or part time, not casual),
you also need to be aware of the following:
The change to the Fair Work
rules regarding Leave Accrual during JobKeeper periods specifically relates to full or part-time employees whose hours
have been reduced or cut completely (stood down)
Just to clarify further ....
Their wages payment may be a
combination of worked hours &/or JK Topup Allowance but their usual leave
accrual must be continued.
eg If an part-time employee
normally works 25 hours p/wk but has been stood down, during JK they must
continue to accrue the same amount of leave (on that 25 hrs p/wk).
Setting up an additional
“Hourly” standard Wage Payroll Item (@ $ 0.00 rate) (called “Stand Down Leave
Accrual” or similar) & ensuring it is included for Leave Accruals is the
current workaround to achieve this.
In the above example, in
addition to the JK Topup Allowance in the Other Payroll Items section, you
would also include the SDLA Payroll Item in their Earnings section with “25” as
the Hours in order to accrue the leave correctly.
In cases where hours have been
reduced, only the difference (between the usual quantity & that pay’s reduced
quantity) would be entered for the Hours.
Note: You are not paying
accrued leave, the employee is just earning it as they normally would.
