I have a question regarding an anomaly with recent pay run for my employee. Her normal PAYG withholding is $132 per fortnight. However, when I subtracted ordinary hours to add in the 2 public holiday hours, her PAYG withholding was calculated at $400. Is there a reason for this? I can't find any reason why it would be different from ATO website.

Did the gross calculate correctly on the 2 public holidays? Are you using hourly pay or salary?
