  • IMPORTANT - STP Submissions
    Due to a change to the STP process, this update is necessary for customers to continue to submit STP through the ClockOn system. If you are a self-hosted customer and are yet to receive this from the release date, you can prompt it using the information in the Manually Updating ClockOn article.

  • Changes to the EOFY process
    As of this financial year, we are retiring the PAYG summary and PAYG validation wizards, in favour of the STP submission process. This means that the customers will no longer be able to generate PAYG summaries from the ClockOn software for the current and future years.

    To compensate for this, we have introduced new STP reporting that can be provided to the employees if needed from the STP wizard and/or directly from the ClockOn Reports.

    You will still be able to re-generate your PAYG summaries for previous years.

    Please see the Processing EOFY through ClockOn guide for more details on the new process.

  • Employee Year-To-Date Changes
    There have been several changes to the look of the employee YTD screen
    1. Added an Opening Balances section, this allows for YTD values from previous systems to be added directly into the system without the need for additional payrolls. This is to allow for payslips with the correct YTD values regardless of payments in previous systems.

      The user can choose to either include or exclude these YTD values from their STP submissions.

    2. Changes to the YTD User Interface to split the detail into three separate tabs to allow for new features and more detail.
      • Tab 1 - Shows the employees yearly earnings,
      • Tab 2 - Shows additional items including overtime, child support, and leave payments
      • Tab 3 - Shows the listing of PAYG allowances currently listed against the employee.

    3. Employees are no longer restricted to 4 PAYG allowances on the YTD screen.

    4. Overtime is now specifically tracked as a YTD item.

    5. Reportable Super Contributions (RSEC) will now update progressively to the YTD per payroll, rather than only be calculated at the time of an STP submission.

    6. Salary sacrifice is now tracked as a YTD item.

    7. Super salary sacrifice is now tracked as a YTD item.

    8. Workers Compensation now shows as a separate amount.

    9. Child support and garnishee tract are shown as a separate amount.

    10. All paid leave (excluding Paid Parental leave and Workers Compensation) is now tracked on the YTD screen as "Other Paid Leave".

    11. The Final Payroll Indicator can now be toggled from the YTD screen, if turned off and an STP event is performed the employee will no longer be considered tax ready for the ClockOn component on their MyGov portal.

  • Paid Parental Leave
    There is now a timesheet leave type for Paid Parental Leave, this removes the need to assign the employee to a new ruleset for these payments.

    Important - Please note that the system will not automatically apply a changed hourly rate for these timesheets. As such you will still either need to apply a special rate to the timesheets in question or adjust the employee's hourly rate according to the rate that they are to receive the payments on.

    Timesheets assigned to this leave type will process with the following conditions.
    1. They WILL accrue Long Service Leave if the accrual is set to process in Weeks,
    2. They WILLNOT accrue Long Service Leave if the accrual is set to process in Hours,
    3. They WILLNOT receive Super,
    4. They WILL NOTaccrue Annual leave, 
    5. They WILL NOTaccrue Personal leave,
