Base pay rate errors

when NZ MYOB payroll calculates the leave rate, the calculation includes non taxable allowance, why?

Re: Base pay rate errors

Hi @Tram


New Zealand Payroll (Desktop) will base the employee's annual leave rate on the average weekly earnings or the ordinary weekly pay whichever one is higher. You can see what values are included in those calculations by selecting Leave on the Enter pays window and selecting the button with the three dots.  In terms of Gross Earnings calculations, this will include all values that have been processed through pay codes which have been coded with the type of Gross Earnings. As such, non-taxable allowances will not be included in those values.


If you are using MYOB Essentials you can select the option Exclude from AWE and OWP calculations on the pay item earning from the Edit Earning item from the Pay Items window.

Kind regards,
