Setup Allowances

 

This video takes you through:

  • Types of allowances
  • Setting up allowances before the pay run
  • Taxable and non-taxable allowances
  • Attaching allowances to the employees' records

 

************************************************

Allowances are additions or deductions from the employees' pays. Allowances can be applied before or after tax. It is best to create the allowance records before setting up the employee files, although it is easy to create allowances later if required.

      • Addition: Select this option if you want the amount to be added to the employee's pay
      • Deduction: Select this option if you want the amount to be deducted from their pay
    • Amount: Enter the allowance amount
    • Minimum: Leave as $0
    • Maximum: Leave as $0
    • Frequency: Select how this allowance is paid (eg Each pay period, Hourly, Each shift, etc)
    • Taxed: Check this box if the allowance is to be taxed
    • Include in Super Calculation: Check if the allowance if super is to be paid on this amount

  6. At the ATO Payment Summary screen, make your selection. We recommend you check with your accountant if the allowances need to be shown on the ATO Payment Summary. Otherwise, leave both options unchecked



  7. Leave as default because you are using Agrimaster as the accounting system - the allowance account code can be set in Agrimaster. Click Next
