Review, Add, and Remove ATO Items

Use the PR PAYG Summary Process form to review the existing ATO items to verify they are correct, and then add or remove items as needed.

You cannot edit existing items, so if an item has an incorrect value, you must first delete the item and then re-add it.

To auto-add all PAYG items set up in the system:

  • Click Update PAYG Items. The system will add all items to the ATO / Super Items and Misc Items grids that are not already set up for the selected tax year.
In the PR PAYG Summary Process form, the ATO / Super Items tab displays all items auto-updated to the grid (from the previous tax year) when you added and saved the selected tax year.

To manually add individual PAYG items:

  1. In the PR PAYG Summary Process form, select the ATO / Super Items tab.
  2. In the ATO/Super Item field, enter the item code or press F4 to select from a list of valid item codes.
  3. From the Type drop-down, select the EDL type: E-Earnings, D-Deductions, or L-Liability.
  4. In the EDL Code field, enter the earnings, deduction, or liability code or press F4 to select from a list of valid codes. The codes listed depend on the EDL type you selected and are further filtered according to the EDL Code ATO Category value. Only those codes with an ATO Category compatible with the ATO Item selected are displayed.
  5. Save the record.
  6. (Optional) If you need to delete an item, select the record in the grid, click the Delete button on the toolbar, and click Yes when the system displays a confirmation message.
    The system removes the record from the grid.
    Important: If you delete a record from any of the tabs and then regenerate the information (by clicking Update PAYG Items) prior to preparing PAYG payment summaries for the current year, the system adds the codes back to the tabs as long as they are still associated with an ATO category (ATO Category field, PR Deductions/Liabilities or PR Earnings Codes forms).
Note: Once you close the tax year ( (that is, set the PAYG Tax Year Open/Closed drop-down on the Info tab to PAYG Tax Year Closed), you can no longer add or delete ATO items.
