Unused Annual Leave on termination not included gross payment why?

Hi Team,

 

We have updated Unused annual leave wages catergory to Unused leave on termination. When I check the payroll acitivity summary report aganist Single Touch Payroll reporting - View YTD verification report each individual Gross YTD($). The terminated employees unused annual leave weren't included in the gross payment figures.

My understanding is unused annual leave is part of their gross payment for individual tax return.

 

Thanks

    Thanks for your post. Payments are reported to the ATO according to the ATO reporting category assigned to the payroll categories. This means that only payroll categories assigned the Gross payments ATO reporting category are included in the Gross payments amount. Payroll categories that have changed from Gross payments in Phase 1 to a new ATO reporting category in Phase 2 are reported separately, not included in the Gross payments amount.

     

    What's different in STP Phase 2 reporting

      Thanks Tracey.

       

      I was just wondering will MYOB extend the sub categories to the YTD verification report?

       

      Like YTD Gross Payment($), PAYG withodling YTD($) followed up other subcatergories like Bonus/leave terminaiton payment etc?

       

      and for individual tax returns - How the figures linked with Mygov?

       

      Thanks

        Hi RR111 

         

        The YTD verification report and Summary of payments report (EOFY finalisation tab>>click on the employee>>View report) display all ATO reporting categories.

         

        YTD verification report:

         

        Summary of payments report:

         

         

        The Payroll summary report in the browser (Reports>>Payroll tab>>Payroll summary) displays the ATO reporting categories assigned to payroll categories to assist with reconciling payroll:

         

         

        The ATO requires payments are reported using the ATO reporting categories, they then transfer those amounts to myGov. As such, we're not able to provide assistance on how payments appear in myGov.
