When I do a State Payroll Tax Summary it states that the threshold is $62,500, however the current threshold for WA is $66,667. Is there any way to update this manually. If not how come the current thresholds are not showing up?

Hi Dara,

Welcome to the Reckon Community.

Unfortunately the new rates and thresholds for Western Australia State Payroll Tax were announced after the 2014 Tax Table Update was finalised so these changes could not be included on that release.

Please see our KB: WA State Payroll Tax calculations are incorrect in Accounts Business 2014 R3 for instructions to calculate the correct amounts.  


My apologies for the inconvenience is is causing you.

Hi Dara,

Personally I don't use the State Payroll reports as I have found them incorrect too many times in my lifetime!

I customise a Payroll Summary report to reflect the payroll items that I require.

You just have to remember to update the memorised report if new payroll items or new employees come on board!

Kind regards,

Well personally i don't rely on the reports either. I simply take the numbers from the payroll reports and enter the into the appropriate online version of payroll tax depending on which state I'm dealing with. I pay tax in every state. The Victorian system is far and away the best. The new Queensland system is almost as good.
