Payroll Allowances not included in W1

As outlined in the guidelines to get STP ready, I have changed Payroll Item settings of Car Allowance to go under the Tax Tracking Item 'Allowances - Car'.
But now the W1 amount on the BAS does not include the Car Allowance anymore, whereas the Total Gross Pay on the STP records submitted to the ATO includes the car allowance.
I have double checked the Payroll Item settings for the Allowances, but cannot see where my settings would be wrong.

What do I need to do to get the W1 on the BAS in line with the Total Gross Pay on the STP data submitted to the ATO?

Very easy fix, Thomas.  You need to edit the W1 label when you run the BAS  to include the specific expenditure item for the changed Car Allowance.
