Pay Types facilitate processing Payees payments within a pay run and consists of Pay Rates, Allowances and Deductions.
Single Touch Payroll Phase 2 provides for these Pay Types to be disaggregated from Gross and reported to the ATO as separately itemised components within the Income Stream Collection (where applicable), then passed to multiple Government Agencies. This reporting method also assists in the administration of the Social Security system.
Due to the stringent requirements surrounding payments, we have pre-configured System Default Pay Rates, Allowances and Deductions based on the ATO's documentation, which also affects the changes you can make when each of these is copied. To help with these new reporting obligations and remove the complexity, we have preconfigured these Pay Types for you.
We have outlined a number of different Awards in the system default pay types documentation as examples when these payments may be applicable, but the Pay Types listed may apply to numerous other Awards.
