I'm new

Hi, 

 

I understand that the top-up amount up to the JobKeeper payment amount should be reported as allowances. But I just wanting to clarify if specific descriptions (e.g. start and end dates of Jobkeeper eligibility) are required on the PAYG Paymment Summary issued to employees? 

 

Many thanks

Hi @lengy84,

 

If you're issuing a paper payment summary you can write in the provide details column a description for what the allowance is for.

 

There's no need to enter a description on an income statement when using single touch payroll, (STP).

 

We've some really good information on our website about how to complete the allowance section on a payment summary.

 

Further reading about finalising STP is also available on our website

 

Take care and stay safe.
