Only that the tax might be incorrect, which could be adjusted next pay if you wanted, but I heard there weren’t any changes to the normal tax scales. I wouldn’t bother changing anything

Hi Mark


There are no changes to the standard tax tables, only to the Govt education loan (eg HECS etc) thresholds.

Therefore, if you’ve not yet installed the 2021 Tax Table Update patch & have any employees with Govt loan debts, I would recommend looking up the new table rates & manually adjusting their PAYGW accordingly.
