I am trying to set up Unused Annual Leave Paid.  I have manage to get Tax taken off the payment, however it keeps adding Super Payment to the total.  What is wrong with my payroll item.  I have included it as Lump Sum A (T) tracking type.  Is this correct.
Should it be Lump Sum A (R)

Hi Liza - if you go to the very last screen of the Unused Annual Leave item - there should be a list of super funds - if you untick them all then super wont calculate on this item?   Unused annual leave doesnt have a special tracking type - I believe its just part of gross wages?

Thank you for your response I have now processed this.

Hi Liza

 

Assuming the termination relates to a genuine redundancy, you are correct – Payment of Unused Annual Leave (& any applicable Leave Loading amount) in that scenario is not part of gross payments & is instead shown at Lump Sum A.   

The R is for genuine “Redundancy”, the T is for a general “Termination” eg for any other purpose including voluntary resignation.

 

As Linda said, if you untick the Super Funds on that last (“Inclusions”) screen, that will prevent Super accruing.
