ETP Death Benefit

When paying a deceased employees entitlements to the Trustee of his estate, what are the MYOB categories that I put these payments against??

If I put it as a payroll category it will cause the EOFY with STP reporting to not balance, as I believe the payment of entitlements to a Trust for a deceased employee, is 'non-reportable' and  excluded from payment summary.

And, do I over ride the 'Employers wage Expense account' , so that it doesn't show up on the EOFY figures??

    Hi cramptons


    I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your employee. Regarding your concern about the categories to put against each payment, I'm afraid I am not allowed to provide any financial advice especially which category to use. But no worries, I have provided here a link that will guide you. I also recommend speaking to your accountant for more information. If there's anything you need assistance with, feel free to create a post again.


    Best regards,
