I am hoping that you can help me out regarding the Government Paid Parental Leave.

One of my employees is taking the governments paid parental leave we have just received a payment from centrelink/services australia and i have followed the step in to set up the codes etc:


I would like to know then how i process this in MYOB payroll roll?

Payroll, Process Payroll, what do i do for the pay period etc how to a record this i have recevied a payment of $12,360.80 that i need to pass on.

when i have just been playing around it is taking PAYG out of this payment? is that correct?


Look forward in hearing from you.

Re: Paid Parental Leave

Hi @Heathrau 


Thanks for your post. You can set up the parental leave in the employee card>>standard pay as per the instructions at Step 5 Pay the employee during their leave of that help article you linked. Then when processing the payrun in Payroll>>Process Payroll the amount will be prefilled.


If you need to pay a lump sum you would manually type the amount against the Paid Parental Leave payroll category when processing the payrun. When it comes to withholding PAYG you'll need to check with the ATO about how much to withhold, especially for the lump sum as that may require a manually calculation.


Please let me know if you need further help.
