PAYGW for new employee

PAYGW on pay to a new employee is incorrect when compared to ATO PAYGW ready reckoner. How are the PAYGW amounts auto-calculated. What do I need to do to rectify the position (payrun has been finalised, lodged via STP and employee paid).

PAYGW for new employee

Hi AKuser1,


Thanks for posting in the Community!


The PAYG will calculate based on the gross, pay schedule, and tax file declaration of the employee. You can check the ATO tax table for this financial year and the PAYG calculator where you can cross-match the calculations on the pay run.


If you've found out that the PAYG is incorrect, you can create an Adhoc pay run or unlock and refinalise the pay run if there are no automated super payments processed and use the Adjust PAYG option to correct the figures.


You can use the usual pay schedule or can create a separate pay schedule and call them Ad hoc.


To create an Adhoc pay run:


  1. Click on the Employees tab, and click on New pay run.
  2. Select the pay period and pay date of the pay run (remember to make the pay period and date paid the same as the initial pay run that you are adjusting).
  3. Select Manually add employees to this pay run, then select Create.
  4. Select Pay Run Actions and select Add employees.
  5. Select the employee name to adjust the pay run, and click on the Actions button to click on Adjust PAYG option.
  6. Click on Save.
  7. Repeat the same process for any other employee, and click on Finalise pay run when done.

Once done, create and submit an updated pay event to the ATO to update the YTD figures reported.
