Hi,

The system isn't calculating SGC on leave loading.

The ATO's SGC checklist states leave loading should form part of OTE when not overtime related: https://www.ato.gov.au/Business/Super-for-employers/How-much-to-pay/Checklist--salary-or-wages-and-o...

Can someone please let me know why Payroll Premier does this and how to fix it?

I looks like this issue has been noted and put into a backlog to be resolved.  The workaround is to edit the rate of superannuation when you are preparing the pay so that the super calculated is enough to cover the leave loading too.

Has this been a recent change by the ATO as i seem to remember that once upon a time LL didn't attract SGC?

It's a pretty significant miss by Reckon and one i hope they fix ASAP as a lot of people would be unaware the system is doing this and therefore opening them up to SGC penalties.
