Field Definitions: PR Auto Termination Pay Setup Form
The following is a list of field descriptions for the PR Auto Termination Pay Setup form. Many of the descriptions include links to other topics that provide additional information about or related to the topic.
ETP/Leave Earn Code
Enter the earnings code that calculates this ETP type. This field applies, and is enabled for, the following ETP types:
Annual Leave (and Leave Loading) - For more information, see Setting Up Automatic Annual Leave ETPs.
Long Service Leave - For more information, see Setting Up Automatic Long Service Leave ETPs.
Standard ETPs (including "in lieu of notice", unused personal leave, and unused RDO) - For more information, see Setting Up Automatic Standard ETPs.
Pre 18 Aug 93 Leave Earn Code
Enter the earnings code for long service leave that was accrued prior to 18 August 1993.
Redund ETP/Leave Earn Code
Enter the earnings code for calculating redundancy payments for this ETP type record. Press F4 for a list of earnings codes.
This field allows you to enter earnings codes setup with an ATO Category of LSAR (for annual or Long Service Leave payment types) or ETPR (for ETP payments) subject to special tax deduction (Tax Free Component) considerations due to an employee’s job having been made redundant.
Additionally, this field allows for entry of earnings codes with an ATO Category of either ERP or ETPR. Upon the release of 6.8, it was unclear if these types of payments are taxed as part of Redundancy calculations (where a Tax Free component is considered) or if these payments are always taxed as a normal ETP (similar to RDO where they are not a part of Tax Free component consideration). By removing restrictions on this field for these two payment types, you are free to enter the appropriate earnings code that would be a member of the Subject Basis of the appropriate tax deduction code. Freedom to enter either type of earnings code will put the user in control of how these two types of payments are taxed.
Enter N, New, or + to create a new ETP type record. This sequence number is a unique identifier for the record you are creating.
