The Ex P/Tax Amount for a terminated employee for work cover payments is not being calculated when producing the Payroll Tax report.

The employee was terminated (with AL payout) then reinstated (with a new employee number) to make some additional payments. While doing reconciliation for 2017-2018 the payroll tax payable amounts had changed for the periods prior to the employee termination and reinstatement.

Ex P/Tax Amounts are being correctly calculated on the employees new number for payments made to it, it's only the original amounts on the old employee number that are not being calculated.

I'm able to resolve this by doing the calculations through excel but anyone using the report as is after having completed my above actions will be over declaring their wages and paying additional payroll tax.

In the attached screenshot there is a different employee also on a work cover claim where the Ex P/Tax Amount is correctly calculated in both versions of the report

Current Report (Produced 20/07/2018):

Original Report (Produced 02/08/2017):

This error occurs in both the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 versions of Payroll Premier.

Looking into it more the error only occurs intermittently when the rate type is changed using history the value re-appears on the report.
