Suzanne  How much are you talking about - a dollar or so (due to rounding) or much more?  Bear in mind that on the Payment Summary, any allowances specified thereon have been excluded from the gross figure.

I have the same problem but it is mission one pay.  Reconciliation Report balances to Gross Pay Report etc but the payment summary's differ.  I have re-built the data files and not fixed ??

Thanks John.  Holiday loading amounts aren't included in gross payments on PAYG summary.  So from what you are saying all is correct?

Hi Suzanne,

How does the Payroll Summary report compare to the Employee Earnings Summary report? Are there discrepancies that you pick there?

Hi Rav.  Not that i can pick.  On the Employee Earnings Summary, salary plus holiday pay equals Gross Payments on PAYG.Is this correct?

Holiday loading isn't accounted for on PAYG payment summary

Lynn.  Have a look at this Knowledge Base response for ways in which to correct this error, if you are referring to Salary 'sacrifice Superannuation.  I usually have at least one to correct each year:

Also John,  should the tax tracking on holiday loading be 'none'?

Suzanne.  Tax tracking should be set to Gross Payments as these days they are taxed at the time of payment.  To set as None, means that they will never be included anywhere on the Payment Summary which is not correct.

Thanks John.  I was sure that I needed to do that but the advice from Reckon Technical support and from a local Reckon Professional bookkeeper- they set it as none! Very frustrating.

sorry I meant my payroll summary and withholding for june is a lot less than the bas statement created in your system.  ???? It is about $35,000 different .. Also the EOFY statement has wages as much higher ?? than what I have added up from the PAYG payments for the past 12mths. ?  Any ideas why ?  Many thanks in advance.

Hi Tracey,

Does a payroll report match the payment summaries?

Hi Suzanne  One question on this post re Holiday Loading. It is taxed the same as the rest of Gross Wages. Plus these days you do not deduct $320 before taxing. That went out a few years ago. For many other questions, the easiest way to solve some of these is to contact an Accredited Consultant in your area. Believe me it will save you hours of precious time.
