Income Type drop-down on the PR Employees form, PAYG Reporting Periods tab.

When a new reporting period is created (by hiring or rehiring an employee), this field automatically defaults the PAYG Income Type specified for the employee on the Info tab (in PR Employees). You should not need to change the default.

Income types are as follows:

  • S - Salary or wages (default) - Select this option if this employee is a full or part-time employee receiving a regular salary or hourly wages.

  • H - Working holiday maker - Select this option if this employee is a working holiday maker.

Note: If an employee's PAYG Income Type changes after a reporting period is created, do not change the Income Type for the reporting period. Instead, follow the steps for changing an employee's PAYG income type to enable the system to create a new reporting period for the employee that reflects the new income type. This ensures each reporting period and its associated summary reflects the correct income type.
