Leave Loading Pay Item setup



I have set up the pay items 'Annual Leave Loading' as a Standard Earning with the ATO Category as Gross Payments, and have selected Non-Taxable.  It seems to be causing a problem so I assume this is not correct so would you be able to tell me the correct set up? 


Secondly the problem it has created which needs to be fixed is the employees payslip YTD figure does not match the YTD figure on the employees mygov Income Statement.  

The payslip shows everything paid to the employee YTD correctly but in the employees mygov the YTD figure is lower and the difference is the annual leave loading that has been paid during the year.


Thank you.

Hi @Susy4 


Thanks for your post. Generally speaking annual leave loading is taxable income. As you have selected Non-taxable it will not be reported through STP. For the leave loading to be reported through STP and, therefore, in the employee's myGov account you would need to change the pay item to taxable and then process a $0 pay to update the YTD amounts in STP.


You can check the YTD amounts are correct in STP by downloading the EOFY verification report and reconciling that with your MYOB report.


Please let me know if you need further help.
