Great work on the introduction of the PAYG Payment Summary report. I have been playing with the report to get ready for EOFY. I have just noticed a couple of things that apply to our business that are not an option on the report. I would guess that there would be other businesses in a similar situation.
We have a number of seasonal working holiday workers throughout the year. They may stay for a couple of weeks to months. At the end of their employment I mark them as inactive in the employee tab. I am unable to run the PAYG Payment Summary report for an inactive employee despite them receiving a payment in that period. At this stage is appears I would need to go in and activate the relevant employee before running the report.
Another note is the Gross Payments Type option on the PAYG Payment Summary. As these employees are working holiday makers, we are required to add the letter “H” in the gross payments type box. There doesn’t appear to be an option to select what type of payment they have received.
I understand with the introduction of single touch payroll we will no longer be required to issue PAYG Payment Summaries, however, if this is the start for introduction of single touch payroll, then this may need to be included.
