If this is already possible, my apologies i may just need to do more digging.


However our client have novated leasing fro their employees which means pre and post tax deductions via payroll.


There are three journals, Pre tax Deduction, Post tax Deduction and the Employee ECM GST.

It would be great if there was an option to select which GL accout these were to be applied to.


in their example

Pre tax Deduction -  6-6299

Post tax Deduction - 6-6299

Employee ECM GST - 2-2200

I can't believe that it can't already be done! I've just migrated from AccountRight and it can be done on all deductions.


So now I have child support deductions mixed in with salary sacrifice - a backward step for me!

Super Salary Sacrifice Deductions need to be journalled out & added to the Super Clearing account.  We should be able to nominate where the deductions are going as it is cumbersome having to tell employers how much super to pay when there are 2 areas to find it!
