Hello Elise,

What are the circumstances of the employees you are being given the ETP summary i ncorrectly?

Did they have an ETP payment the previous FY at the end of June?

Did they have a unique payroll item that has inadvertently been given an ETP Tax Tracking Type?


regards,
John

Hi John,

I have 19 extra employees receiving a nil balance ETP Payment Summary. 

These are all of the employees I have terminated in this financial year who were either casual and didn't receive any form of termination pay or received their balance of annual leave paid out as a lump sum payment. 

I have one employee accurately reporting an ETP Payment Summary.

I have used the same payroll items as previous years and this is the first time it has been a problem.

Thank you
Elise

No previous ETP Payments were made to these employees most of them were only employed within that financial year.

Thanks Elise,

Please review the payroll items used and their Tax Tracking Types - only ETP payroll items should use these tax tracking types:



Hope this helps.

regards,
John

Thanks John,

This is the Payroll Item I have used, it is setup correctly.  When I went in an added a release date to the employees card file it automatically created an ETP Payment Summary for them.

Thanks Elise,

I notice in your list a Redundancy - Genuine payroll item using an ETP Tax Tracking Type (TTT) - please review this as I am of the understanding that a Genuine Redundancy amount is tax free up to the limits specified by Fair Work, and uses a TTT of Lump Sum D payment (on the INB).  Amounts that exceed the Fair Work stipulations are an ETP payment, so a redundancy payment may need 2 payroll items.  Payout for unused Annual Leave on termination uses the Lump Sum A TTT.

John

Thanks John,

I can amend that code if necessary but I'm not using any of them.  May of these codes were setup prior to my employment and are incorrect. The code I am using should be going into Gross Payments as per setup. 

The employees receiving an ETP in error only received one when I entered a release date in their card file.  If the codes I used were setup wrong they should have received one regardless not just when a  date was entered.

Thanks Elise

Thanks Elise,

To issue an ETP Payment Summary the employee must have a release date set in their record AND have used a payroll item with an ETP Tax Tracking Type.  Its quite possible if a payroll item is incorrectly using an ETP TTT then it produces a zero amount for ETP and consequently will print a zero ETP Payment Summary.

You will have to identify which payroll items are using an ETP TTT (you can see them on the Payroll Items List) , determine whether they are correctly used, then identify the employees (FastReport on the payroll item) that used a payroll item incorrectly assigned an ETP TTT and make a correction. 


regards,
John.  

Hi Elise

This is an auto-occurrence due to necessary entry of the required termination date.  If no ETP-specific amounts/values have been used, all the ETPs are blank & are therefore irrelevant eg you don't need to give someone/lodge a summary of all $ 0.00s. 

Hope that helps to clarify :)
