Allowances in Ordinary Weekly Pay calculation

If we pay our employees a meal and clothing allowance, should these amounts be included in the Ordinary Weekly Pay calculation?

Re: Allowances in Ordinary Weekly Pay calculation

Hi @DSmith

 

Welcome to the MYOB Community Forum, I hope you find it a wealth of knowledge


My understanding is that it does depend on what industry you are in and what the allowances are for. I would recommend speaking to Fair Work Australia or a similar organisation in relation to that enquiry

In terms of AccountRight you can exempt categories from being included as part of calculation basis, i.e. exempting a wage category from being included in the superannuation category calculation, by going to Payroll>>Payroll Categories>>Selecting the required tab>>Selecting the require calculation>>Exempt button and ticking the appropriate category.


Kind Regards,
Steven
