The usual practice of truck drivers recording nights away from home on a signed letter from the company has now ended. We now have to record this information on the drivers payslips. Does anyone have any experience in entering this information? Any asistance would be appreciated.

Under wages I did a new category called overnight allowances. I am not sure what the minimum amount is but the maximum per overnight is $89.60. Then go into exempt and tick PAYG as it is tax free to the driver.

Thanks for the help, it works perfectly except the superannuation value increases as well. Is there away to prevent that?

Under payroll catergory click on the superannuation tab. Choose the appropriate superannuation e.g. superannuation guarantee, go the exempt tab and click on overnight allowance or whatever wage category you do not want superannuation calculated on.
There are often two different ways to achieve the same outcome. This way is quite easy.

Concerning the Payment Summaries, is there supposed to be separate totals shown for Gross wages and an amount in total allowances given that the amount of $89.60 per night was ticked as exempt from tax, for overnight travel allowance?
