These tax scales are suitable for all versions of Attaché Payroll.
The new tax scales contain changes published by the ATO on 25 June 2018 (see Tax rates and codes on the ATO website). These include the 32.5% thresholds rising from $87,000 to $90,000 p.a., changes to the ETP caps and a new HELP/SSL/TSL component rate of 2% on weekly earnings of $999-1109 (see Schedule 8 on the ATO website).
The addition of the new 2% component rate makes a total of 11 brackets for HELP/SSL/TSL. Because Tax Impost 1 (HELP/TSL-Higher Education/Trade Support) in Payroll Options allows for only ten brackets, we have combined the two highest brackets into the top rate of 8% to make room for the 2% bracket. This means that employees with weekly earnings of $1,934.00 – 2,060.99 and a HELP/SSL/TSL obligation will be taxed at the component rate of 8% (rather than the required 7.5%). The additional 0.5% amounts to approximately $10 in excess tax per week that the employee will be able to claim in their annual tax return.
