Arrears & Priorities - Australian Payroll

Hi, If an employee does not have enough money to have deductions taken out, the business requires the deduction to stop all together and not cause a claim. EG: Employee is on leave without pay therefore $0.00 pay. We want the deduction to stop all together and not cause a claim. Kind Regards Christine

    If the deduction w/t's are configured in V_T51P6, the payroll function PRPRI will not allow creating a claim.

    Also check the proc cl 05 for all your earning/payment w/t's. The pcr Q030 creates w/t /550 based on a w/t's proc cl 05 value.

    The w/t /550 is used in PRPRI to apply deductions not exceeding the amt in /550, after deducting tax.

    This function is processed only for the current period (and not for retro).

    When an employee's deduction is changed from a previous period, the function PRDNT uses this table to bring back entries in DDNTK or ARRRS, and will not allow change in a dedn in a retro period; based on the w/t's config in this table/view, it may bring any change for a previous period to the current period and try to apply for the dedn w/t (the difference from previous period/s) plus (this period's dedn amt).

    • Hi Your information helped me greatly. Athough I have another issue with this. The scenario is below: Employee Gross $113.69 Tax $ 25.00 Balance of $ 88.69 If the employee has a w/type deduction of $2.00 and a w/type deduction of $100.00, I set V_T51P6 to Priority A, Arrears 2(Deduct what is possible, I would have thought that the w/type deduction of $2.00 would come out and not the $100 deduction. Kind Regards Christine

    For each Deduction WT, check it's values in table view V_T51P6, as suggested by @Jagan Gunja.

    I've never worked on Payroll for Australia, but the parameters in that table seem very similar to those we use in Canada. You will notice that in column "Arrears", the parameter 5 is "Deduct all or nothing".

    Look at all the available options, and make the appropriate changes so that some deductions go into Arrears (in whole or in part) while others do not.
