News and developments for Australia

  • SAP wishes to advise our Australian Payroll Customers that the Single Touch Payroll (STP) solution delivery has been delayed by approximately one month until 11th October 2018.
    There were many factors that led to this decision and rest assured, it was not taken lightly. SAP understands that this change of delivery date could have an impact on customers, however, our priority is to deliver an accurate and appropriate solution. Our pilot customers are on track to start their testing in a few weeks. Due to the release date slippage, the deferral from the ATO has also been moved back one month until 31st May 2019. The ATO have provided Amended Deferral specific letters for SAP On-Premise customers on versions ECC6.0, ECC6.04, ECC6.08 and ECP customers in the cloud on ECC 6.08. Please note that all Enhancement Packs are specific to ECC releases, and therefore by default are included in the deferral. 
    Please click on the following links that contain these letters from the ATO for your reference:  ECC6.0ECC6.04ECC6.08 and ECP customers in the cloud on ECC 6.08
  • The 2018/19 tax rate changes are planned to be available start of business, Friday 29th June.  Delivery will be via SAR files for all supported ECC releases (608/604/600). These changes contain the tax cuts passed late last week.
  • The legislation to vary the tax rates for the 2018/19 year has not passed both houses of parliament
    The legislation to vary the tax rates for the 2018/19 year has not passed both houses of parliament, and therefore the standard thresholds/coefficients and HELP/SFSS could have 2 different sets of values. SAP will not deliver any changes until the legislation is passed. This could be after the start of the new financial year; however it is out of our hands. As soon as we know final rates etc. SAP will update the market on planned delivery timeframes. Rates will stay as is for the time being.

  • New average gross for marginally taxed termination payments and taxation - Non-CE
    As per the ATO guidelines, if an employer pays an amount to an employeefor unused leave on the termination of their employment, then the paymentshould either be taxed at the rate of 32% or should be marginally taxed basedon the table given by ATO (Schedule 7 – Tax table for unused leave payments on termination of employment).
    Currently, SAP payroll uses the average earnings (/109) for the marginally taxed termination payments. This average does not include additional payments like bonuses.
    The new average will include additional payments like bonuses so that payroll calculates the marginal tax on termination payments correctly. 
    Summary of changes:
    - A new gross average wage type (/129) has been introduced. It will contain additional payments.
    - It will be used only in the marginal taxation of termination payments.
    - There is no change in the taxation of additional payments (bonus and XFY back payments). These will continue to be taxed using /109 as per ATO NAT 3348.

Where an employer has been granted a deferral they must continue to meet their existing lodgement and payment obligations (issuing payment summaries and submitting PAYG withholding Payment Summary Annual Reports, BAS for small and medium withholders, electronic payment for large withholders), unless they have been granted separate relief from these obligations.
