Pay Types define the employees Pay Rates. Pay Rates differ to Awards as Awards set the employment conditions.

There are three (3) Pay Type options to use when processing a Pay Run:

  • Pay Rates (eg. Award Rate, Annual Leave, Double Time)
  • Allowances (eg. Travel Allowance, Laundry Allowance, Medical Allowance)
  • Deductions (eg. Super Salary Sacrifice, Loan Repayment)

e-PayDay® contains a number of Default Pay Rates, Allowances and Deductions that can be used at any stage during the Financial Year. You also have the ability to add your own Pay Rates, Allowances and Deductions where your requirements are not already established in the product. The default Pay Types have been added based on information from the ATO, however, as e-PayDay® is not a registered Taxation or BAS agents, we are unable to provide payroll advice therefore we strongly recommend seeking advice from your registered Taxation / BAS agent or the ATO before adding new or overriding existing pay types.
