5 Setting Up Tax Information

This chapter contains the following topics:

5.1 Understanding Tax Setup

Before you can process employees through a payroll cycle, you must set up information so that the taxes that are associated with earnings are calculated and withheld correctly. Contact customer support to request the latest copy of the Standard Australia and New Zealand Tax parameters.

5.1.1 Prerequisites

Before you complete the tasks in this section:

5.2 Setting Up Organizational Tax Information

This section provides an overview of organizational tax information and discusses how to:

  • Set up tax fiscal date patterns.

  • Set up tax calculation parameters.

  • Set up tax calculation rules.

  • Set up tax information for PDBAs.

  • (AUS) Set up tax calculation options for Australia.

  • (NZL) Set up tax calculation options for New Zealand.

  • Set up cash rounding for cash payments.

5.2.1 Understanding Organizational Tax Information

Before you can process employees through a payroll cycle, you must define the rules, information, and processes that the system uses to calculate tax amounts for each organization.

Note:

Australian organizations are also required to set up state tax information. Instructions for setting up and processing state tax information are discussed in a later chapter.

See Table 4-0, "(AUS) Processing State Payroll Taxes for Australia".

5.2.1.1 Tax Fiscal Date Patterns

For each payroll company that has a date pattern that is based on a noncalendar year, you must set up noncalendar fiscal periods. These fiscal date patterns must be set up for each tax year. After you set up fiscal date patterns for one year, you can use the Copy function to create fiscal date patterns for subsequent years. Setup of noncalendar fiscal date patterns ensures that the system posts history summary records to the correct month, which ensures the accuracy of history inquiries and reports.

5.2.1.2 Tax Calculation Parameters

You set up tax calculation parameters to define the rates that are associated with each tax scale that the system uses for calculating employee payroll taxes. You set up tax calculation parameters using the Australian Tax Parameters program (P75A0001). Because the limits, rates, and adjustment amounts differ for each tax scale, you must set up tax calculation parameters for each tax scale.

Tax rates, limits, and adjustment amounts might change periodically. To accommodate changes in these amounts, tax calculation parameters are date-specific. If the rates, limits, or adjustment amounts change, you can enter a stop date for the outdated tax calculation parameters and set up new parameters, entering the date that the tax change becomes effective. For example, if you know that tax rates are going to change on a specified date, you can set up tax calculation parameters in advance, and use start and stop dates to ensure that employee payroll taxes are calculated using the rates, limits, and adjustment amounts that are current at the time the employee is paid. To obtain current tax calculation information, contact the local taxing authority.

To ensure that the system calculates employee payroll taxes correctly, you must assign a tax scale to each employee. This table shows simplified examples of tax parameters and demonstrates how tax rates might be calculated for a New Zealand employee with a tax scale of M:

Limit Number Limit Amount Rate Number Rate Amount Adjustment Number Adjustment Amount
Limit 1 9500.00 Rate 1 .1500 Adjustment 1 0.00
Limit 2 38000.00 Rate 2 .2100 Adjustment 2 570.00
Limit 3 999999999.00 Rate 3 .3300 Adjustment 3 5130.00
Limit 4 0.00 Rate 4 0.00 Adjustment 4 0.00
Limit 5 0.00 Rate 5 0.00 Adjustment 5 0.00
Limit 6 0.00 Rate 6 0.00 Adjustment 6 0.00
Limit 7 0.00 Rate 7 0.00 Adjustment 7 0.00
Limit 8 0.00 Rate 8 0.00 Adjustment 8 0.00

  • If the employee earns more than 9,500.00 but less than 38,000.00, the entire amount is taxed at a rate of 21 percent.

    Then the adjustment value of 570.00 is deducted from the calculated tax amount.

  • If an employee earns more than 38,000.00, the entire amount is taxed at the rate of 33 percent.

    Then the adjustment amount of 5,130.00 is deducted from the calculated tax amount.

  • In addition, earner premium tax would be calculated on all applicable pay.

    In most cases, regular pay is always subject to earner premium tax.

    Note:

    For purposes of the example, actual earner premium tax calculations were not included. However, earner premium tax would be calculated on all pay types that are not set up to be excluded from the earner premium tax calculation. For more information about tax calculations and tax regulations, contact the local taxing authority.

5.2.1.3 Tax Calculation Rules

You set up tax calculation rules to define the information that the system uses when calculating employee taxes. Tax calculation rules are used to define various taxation components that make up the total tax calculation scheme for a specified employee tax scale. You can set up tax calculation rules for different types of earnings, including regular pay, leave pay, or termination payments. These rules enable the system to correctly identify the different types of earnings in each tax scale, and to calculate taxes accordingly.

The system uses input and output numbers to calculate and store tax information. You must assign input numbers to all pay types, taxable benefits, and pretax deductions that employees receive. When calculating taxes, the system uses the input numbers that are assigned to the PDBAs, along with the employee's country and tax scale, to determine which tax rule to use to calculate the tax on a particular type of earnings. Nine inputs are available.

Calculated tax amounts are stored in the Tax Detail File table (F07353) by output number, tax area, and tax type. After all tax calculations for an employee are complete, the system totals each record in the table to determine the total tax amount for the employee.

Note:

For any tax rules with the same country and tax scale, output numbers must be unique. The use of the same output number can cause existing tax records in the Tax Detail table (F07353) to be overwritten and can cause tax calculations to be incorrect. For example, each tax rule that you set up for New Zealand for tax scale M should use a different output number.

You can assign an override rate to a tax rule or you can set up the tax rule to calculate the tax amount by retrieving the rate from the tax parameters. When you assign an override rate, the taxes that are associated with all earnings that use the tax rule are calculated using the override rate. To use the rates that are set up in the tax parameters, you must enter the tax parameter code in the Rate Code field.

Important:

To ensure that the system correctly calculates tax amounts, you must create a tax rule of TX for every tax scale that you set up. If the organization pays employees Annual Leave Loading payments, you must create a tax rule of LL for every tax scale. You enter the tax-free threshold for Annual Leave Loading in the LL tax rules. Additionally, if you distribute lump sum payments during employee terminations, you must set up tax rules LA,LB,LC, LD, and LE.

For specific instructions about the values that you must enter when setting up tax rules, contact the account representative. Because tax calculations periodically change, the account representative can provide you with the most current information for setting up tax rules.

You should also be aware of special requirements for calculating pretax deductions and excludable pay types and benefits.

See "Setting Up Tax Information" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Payroll Implementation Guide.

Before you can set up tax calculation rules, you must verify that all of the tax scale codes that you need to accurately calculate tax amounts are entered in user-defined code (UDC) table 75/SC. Contact customer support for information about which codes to use.

See Section 11.3, "UDCs for Australia and New Zealand".

Set up tax rates, limits, and adjustment amounts for each tax scale.

See Setting Up Tax Calculation Parameters.

5.2.1.4 Tax Information for PDBAs

For the system to identify different types of earnings, and to accurately calculate taxes on those earnings, you must add tax information to PDBAs. Specifically, you must assign each type of earnings an input number and a tax reporting code.

The system uses the input number to identify the type of earnings that the PDBA represents. The tax reporting code identifies the tax rule that the system uses to calculate the tax amount that is associated with the PDBA. The tax reporting code is also used for tax reporting. Specific types of earnings must be reported in specified places on the Payment Summary forms. To identify which types of earnings should appear in each section of the Payment Summary form, you must add tax-reporting codes to all PDBAs that the organization reports to the governing organization.

Note:

When processing information about payment summaries, the system does not include any PDBAs that do not include a Payment Summary reporting code. Valid tax reporting codes are stored in UDC 06/S2.

The system uses the input numbers and tax reporting codes that are associated with the PDBAs, tax rules, and tax area information to accurately calculate tax amounts. For example, each PDBA that you use to distribute regular earnings should be set up with an input number 1 and a tax reporting code of TX. In addition, you must ensure that tax area information and corporate tax IDs have been set up for Federal A. This table provides several examples of how you might set up the system for specific types of earnings:

Type of Earnings or Payments (PDBAs) Mark the Input number for all PDBAs associated with the type of earnings Set up a tax reporting code and a tax rule for the tax reporting code Set up tax area information and corporate tax IDs for these tax types
PAYG regular earnings. 1 TX Federal A.
Lump Sum A payments. 2 LSA LA (for each Australian state in which the organization does business).
Lump Sum B payments. 3 LSB LB (for each Australian state in which the organization does business).
Lump Sum C payments for employees who are older than 55. 4 LSO LC (for each Australian state in which the organization does business).
Lump Sum E payments. 5 LSE LE (for each Australian state in which the organization does business).
Pretax deductions, or excludable earnings. 6 GRN No additional tax type setup is required.
Leave loading payments. 7 LL No additional tax type setup is required.
Lump Sum C payments for employees who are 55 and younger. 8 LSC LC (for each Australian state in which the organization does business).

Note:

Because tax regulations periodically change, contact the local account representative for specific values and setup information that is necessary to ensure that the tax rules are set up correctly.

5.2.1.5 Excludable Earnings and Pretax Deductions

The Tax History table (F06136) stores a summary of the tax calculations that are required to produce Payment Summary forms at the end of the tax year. Payment summaries must include an employee's taxable salary. In Australia and New Zealand, taxable salary is calculated in this way:

(Taxable Salary) = (Gross Earnings) − (Excludable Earnings)

To ensure that the system reports the correct taxable salary on Payment Summary forms, all pretax deductions and excludable earnings (which can be benefits or pay types) must be set up correctly. To specify that a pay type or benefit is excludable, or that a deduction is a pretax deduction, you must set up the PDBA to use input number 6.

When you set up PDBAs, you should set up all excludable benefits, regardless of whether they are taxable, as taxable cash benefits. You can then use Tax Calc Input number 1 to determine whether the benefit is taxable. This table provides several examples of how you might set up tax information for PDBAs:

PDBA Type Set Input 1 Set Input 6 Notifiable
ETP Nontaxed (pay type) No Yes No
ETP Deceased (pay type) No Yes No
Termination Lump Sum D (pay type) No Yes No
Superannuation Sacrifice (deduction) Yes Yes No
Union Deduction (deduction) No No Yes
Pretax Car Deduction (deduction) Yes Yes Yes
Meal Monies (benefit) No Yes No
Bonus (benefit) Yes No No
Nontaxable Car Allowance (benefit) No Yes Yes
Tool Allowance (benefit) Yes Yes Yes
Uniform Allowance (benefit) Yes Yes Yes

Note:

All termination lump sum PDBAs except Lump Sum D are subtracted from taxable salary when the Payment Summary is printed. Therefore, you do not need to set up PDBAs for these payments as excludable.

Before you can set up tax information for a PDBA, you must set up any PDBAs that the organization uses to create employee DBAs.

See "Setting Up Deductions, Benefits, and Accruals" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Human Capital Management Fundamentals Implementation Guide.

5.2.1.6 Tax Calculation Options for Australia

The Australian Tax Office (ATO) provides the Formulae for form, which contains several variable values that are used to calculate payroll taxes. Using the information on this form, you set up tax calculation options for Australia, which ensures that the system uses accurate data to calculate payroll taxes for employees.

Note:

To ensure that the system calculates tax amounts correctly, you must update the tax calculation options whenever the ATO issues a new Formulae for Calculating Income Tax Installments form.

5.2.1.7 Tax Calculation Options for New Zealand

Inland Revenue provides employers in New Zealand with information that explains how to calculate tax information. You enter this information in the tax calculation options to ensure that the system correctly calculates payroll taxes for New Zealand employees.

Note:

Inland Revenue periodically changes tax calculation amounts. To ensure accurate tax calculations, you should update the tax calculation options to reflect the most current Inland Revenue tax amounts.

5.2.1.8 Cash Rounding for Cash Payments

For employees who receive cash payments, you can use cash rounding to pay the employees in specified monetary increments. In the tax calculation options, you specify the cash rounding increment and identify the DBAs that are used to administer cash rounding. These examples illustrate the effects of the cash rounding process on employee cash payments.

Without cash rounding, an employee's payment might look like this:

  • Gross: 1000

  • Tax: 300.95

Therefore, the gross to net calculation is:

699.05 net = 1000 gross − 300.95 tax

Using cash rounding with a cash-rounding increment of 1.00, which forces the employee's net amount to the next whole amount, the same payment might look like this:

  • Gross: 1000

  • Tax: 300.95

  • Cash rounding benefit: . 95

Therefore, the gross to net calculation is:

700 net = 1000.95 gross − 300.95 tax

The system added a cash benefit (using the DBA that you specify in the tax calculation options) of .95 so that the net payment is increased to the next whole amount.

During the next payroll cycle, the employee would have a deduction (using the cash rounding deduction that you enter in the tax calculation options) for .95. After all of the deductions, including the cash rounding deduction and taxes, are satisfied, the system determines whether an additional benefit is needed to make this payment a whole amount. The employee's next payment might look like this:

  • Gross: 1000

  • Cash rounding deduction: .95 (created during the previous payroll cycle)

  • Tax: 300.95

  • Total deductions (300.95 + .95): 301.90

  • Cash rounding benefit: .90

Therefore, the gross to net calculation is:

699 net = 1000.90 gross − 301.90 total deductions

If you set the cash rounding increment to 5.00, the system would add a cash rounding benefit that would increase the net amount to the next increment of 5.00. If you are using a cash rounding increment of 5.00, the calculations for the previous example might look like this:

  • Gross: 1000

  • Cash rounding deduction: .95

  • Tax: 300.95

  • Total deductions 300.95 + .95 = 301.90

  • Cash rounding benefit: 1.90

Therefore, the gross to net calculation is:

700 net = 1001.90 gross − 301.90 total deductions

Note:

You do not need to use cash rounding for employees who receive payments through automatic deposit. Cash rounding is used only for employees who receive cash payments.

5.2.1.9 Earner Premium Taxes

Earner premium tax that is calculated for each pay type, and for each employee, is stored in the New Zealand Tax History Tag Table (F75Z0010). Earner premium tax history is added to the table during the final update step of payroll processing. You can access the history records using the NZ Tax Detail row exit from the Tax History (P070920) program located on menu G07BUSP14.

When an employee has met the annual tax limit for earner premium, a 1 is added to the F75Z0010 EPLMF field. The system uses the EP tax scale information to determine the wage limit, tax rate and annual tax limit when performing calculations.

Note:

To create earner premium tax history records for payrolls that were processed before the creation of the F75Z0010 table, a user with payroll authority must run the Create EP Tax History Records program (R75Z0010). After the records are created, you can verify, using the Tax Rules (P75A0004) program, that for Rule Type EP, Input Used 1, that the Level Calc field is set to A. Subsequent payroll runs will properly calculate the Earner Premium tax and verify that the Earner Premium annual tax limit has not been exceeded.

5.2.3 Setting Up Tax Fiscal Date Patterns

Access the Non Calendar Tax Fiscal Patterns Revisions form.

Begin Year

Enter the first day of the fiscal year. A fiscal year spanning 1998–1999 and beginning September 1 would be entered as 090198 (US date format).

End Of Per 01 (end of period 01)

Enter the month end date in 12-period (monthly) accounting. Enter the period end date in 13-period, 52-period, or 4-4-5 period accounting.

5.2.4 Setting Up Tax Calculation Parameters

Access the Australian/New Zealand Tax Parameter Revisions form.

Limit 1/9

Enter a monetary limit that defines how the employee's taxes are calculated. All of the pay that an employee receives that is at or below the Limit 1/9 amount is taxed using the rate in the Rate 1/9 field. This amount is defined by the governmental taxing authority.

Note:

If a value of Z is in the Tax scale field, this field denotes the value for limit 9. For example, if tax scale B has 12 limits, you enter tax parameters for limits 1 through 8 for tax scale B, and enter limits for tax parameters 9 through 12 for tax scale ZB.
Rate 1/9

Enter the rate that is used to calculate taxes for all monetary amounts that are at or below the amount in the Limit 1 field. This amount is defined by the governmental taxing authority.

Note:

If a value of Z is in the Tax scale field, this field denotes the value for rate 9. For example, if tax scale B has 12 rates, you enter tax parameters for rates 1 through 8 for tax scale B, and enter rates for tax parameters 9 through 12 for tax scale ZB.
Adjustment 1/9

Enter the amount that is subtracted from the tax that is calculated for level 1 for this tax scale. The adjustment is made only if the employee's pay reaches the Limit 1 amount. This amount is defined by the governmental taxing authority.

For example, if the Limit 1 amount is 500.00, the rate 1 is 10 percent, and the adjustment 1 amount is 10.00, no adjustment is taken if the employee's pay is less than 500.00. If the employee receives 500.00 or more, the adjustment is taken. For an employee that makes exactly 500.00, the tax calculation is: (500 × .10) = 40.

Note:

If a value of Z is in the Tax scale field, this field denotes the value for adjustment 9. For example, if tax scale B has 12 adjustments, you enter tax parameters for adjustment 1 through 8 for tax scale B, and enter adjustments for tax parameters 9 through 12 for tax scale ZB.

5.2.5 Setting Up Tax Calculation Rules

Access the Tax Rule Revisions form.

Rule Type

Enter the rule type for this payroll tax rule.

Input Used

Enter the input number that this rule is to use for its calculation. This option is used in rule-based payroll taxes for Australia and New Zealand.

Sign Result

Enter the sign of the result for this rule calculation. This field is used in rule-based payroll taxes for Australia and New Zealand.

Gross Wage Number

Enter the input number for the gross wage figure to be used by this rule. This number is used when a rule specifies that another rule has to be recalculated.

Level Calc (level calculation)

Enter the level of calculation to be used for the current payroll tax rule.

Output No. (output number)

Enter the output number that the calculation result for the current tax rule will be written to. This value is used in the payroll tax rules for Australia and New Zealand.

Work Tax Area

Enter a code that identifies a geographical location and the tax authorities for an employee work site, including employee and employer statutory requirements. In the Vertex payroll tax calculation software, the tax area code is synonymous with GeoCode. To determine the valid codes for the location, refer to the documentation for the tax calculation software that you are using.

T T(tax type)

Enter a code that specifies the type of payroll tax that is being processed. This is a UDC (07/TX). To set up state minimum wage amounts, you must enter MW in this field. To do so, you must first add MW to UDC 07/TX. However, you should not change the codes and definitions that are provided with the software.

Rate Code

Enter the rate code to be used when calculating this rule. This is usually the same as the tax scale code unless a secondary scale or a specific field test is to be applied.

Override Rate

Enter the rate at which the rule is calculated and overrides all other rates for this rule. This field is used in the payroll tax rules for Australia and New Zealand.

If you enter a value in the Override Rate field, all earnings that are associated with this tax rule are taxed at this rate. To use the rates that are associated with a set of tax parameters, you must enter the Tax Parameter Code in the Rate Code field.

Ins\Upd Recs

Select this option if a record is to be written to the Tax Detail File table (F07353) for this rule, instead of being used as a work amount. This option is used in rule-based payroll taxes for Australia and New Zealand.

Threshold Value

Enter a quantity that the system compares against accumulated sales volume to determine whether a rebate should be awarded. You can define thresholds as quantities, weights, or sales amounts. Use the Level Break Type field in the adjustment definition to define the type of threshold.

Threshold Type

Enter a code that indicates that the threshold is in either number of units or amount. Depending on the type that you indicate, the threshold field is titled either Threshold Units or Threshold Amount.

G E(gross pay type)

Enter a code that indicates whether the pay type is added to, subtracted from, or does not affect the employee's gross pay. Values are:

+: Pay type will be added to the employee's gross pay.

−: Pay type will be subtracted from the employee's gross pay.

Blank: Pay type will not affect the employee's gross pay.

A pay type should not have a negative effect on gross pay. If you set up a pay type to have a negative effect on gross or net pay, gross-to-net errors appear on the Payroll Register. We recommend that you set up a deduction instead of a pay type that would have a negative effect on gross pay.

When you set up a pay type with no effect on gross pay and a positive effect on net pay, do not create a separate check. A separate check will cause a gross-to-net error.

Incorp YTD (incorporate year-to-date)

Select this option if the rule should include the year-to-date figure in the threshold calculation. This option is used in rule-based payroll taxes for Australia and New Zealand.

Re-calc Input (recalculate input)

Enter the input number to be recalculated as a result of calculating the current rule. This field is used in the payroll tax rules for Australia and New Zealand.

5.2.6 Setting Up Tax Information for PDBAs

Access the Tax Instructions - Australia and New Zealand form.

5.3.1 Understanding Tax Reports

You can process tax reports to verify that you have set up tax rules and scales correctly.

5.3.1.1 Tax Scale Listing Report

The Tax Scale Listing report (R75A0012) provides detailed information about each tax scale that is set up for a specified company. This report lists the limits, tax rates, and adjustment amounts for each tax scale.

5.3.1.3 AU Payroll History Audit Report

You use the AU Payroll History Audit Report (R75A7703) to verify that the payroll tax history that has been generated by the payroll cycle is valid and that it does not contain any errors. This report can be run for a specific calendar year and month, or you can run the report without specifying a date to verify all existing payroll history. You can verify payroll tax history, payroll payment history or both types of history when you run the report. You can also choose to run the report for a specific company.

When you verify tax history, the report compares data in from summary tax history tables to the corresponding detail tax history tables and determines if there are any discrepancies in the data. The report compares data in these tax tables:

  • Data in the F06136 is compared to data in the F06166.

  • Data in the F06145 is compared to data in the F0719.

  • Data in the F06146 is compared to data in the F0618 and F0719.

When you verify payment history, the report compares data in from summary payment history tables to the corresponding detail payment history tables and determines if there are any discrepancies in the data. The report compares data in these payment tables:

  • Data in the F06156 is compared to data in the F06166.

  • Data in the F06156 is compared to data in the F0618.

  • Data in the F06156 is compared to data in the F0719.

Note:

Oracle recommends that you run this report frequently to verify that all payroll history data is accurate and valid. Oracle also strongly suggests that you run this report and correct all errors before submitting any payroll or tax data to government reporting agencies.

5.4 Setting Up Employee Tax Information

This section provides overviews of employee tax information for Australia, employee tax information for New Zealand and employee national and fiscal data, lists a prerequisite, and discusses how to:

  • (AUS) Set up employee tax information for Australia.

  • (NZL) Set up employee tax information for New Zealand.

  • (NZL) Enter student loan certificate numbers.

  • Set up employee national and fiscal data for Australia and New Zealand.

5.4.1 (AUS) Understanding Employee Tax Information for Australia

To ensure that the system calculates employee payroll taxes correctly, you must set up information about each employee.

After you enter general employee information into the system, you must also enter employee payroll tax information. Payroll tax information enables the system to calculate earnings and tax information to ensure accurate tax reporting. Contact the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) for more information about setting up employee tax information.

Note:

The system uses an algorithm to verify that the tax file number that you enter is valid. The system also notifies you if you enter a duplicate tax file number. In addition, you can enter one of these tax file numbers to report special circumstances to the ATO. For additional information about the purpose of these special tax file numbers, contact the ATO.

5.4.2 (NZL) Understanding Employee Tax Information for New Zealand

After you enter general employee information into the system, you must also enter employee payroll tax information. You use the New Zealand Tax Overrides program (P75Z0002) to enter tax information for New Zealand employees. Entering payroll tax information enables the system to calculate earnings and tax information to ensure accurate tax reporting to the Inland Revenue Department.

Because you must track tax information for each employee, each time you enter tax override information for an employee, you must create a new record. The records use effective dating to ensure that the Australia New Zealand Tax Calculation Engine (N75A0001) uses the most current information to calculate employee payroll tax amounts. Therefore, if you must change employee tax information, you must create a new record. You cannot update an existing record. When you create a new record, you can specify the beginning effective date of that record. The system automatically ends the active record one day prior to this date, making the new record effective.

5.4.2.1 Special Tax Rate Codes

On occasion, employees might receive a special tax certificate from Inland Revenue that specifies a special tax rate that the employee must pay for a given tax year. To enter this special rate, you must create a new tax override record. On the new record, enter STC (special tax certificate) in the Tax Scale field. The system then displays the Special Tax Rate field, where you can enter the rate specified on the Inland Revenue tax certificate.

When you enter the record, you must specify the date on which the record becomes effective. The system uses this date to deactivate the current tax record, and active the new record you enter.

5.4.2.2 Student Loan Repayments

Inland Revenue requires that, when applicable, employers withhold student loan repayments from employee earnings. Standard tax calculation programs calculate the repayment amount using the standard repayment rate that is defined by Inland Revenue. This standard student loan repayment rate is used for all employees that have one of these tax scales, and also have a student loan:

  • M

  • S

  • SH

  • SD

  • MD

  • ST

  • STC

When an employee has a student loan with Inland Revenue, the employee receives a student loan certificate. You must track the employee's certificate number. You can use a text media object to attach the certificate number to the employee.

In addition to calculating student loan repayments at the standard rate, the Inland Revenue Service Income Tax Act of 2004 requires that employers support the ability to withhold amounts in addition to the standard student repayment rate, or to calculate the repayment amount at a different rate. This enables employees to repay their student loan in a more rapid fashion, or to appeal to Inland Revenue for a lower rate.

When setting up additional repayment contributions, you can use one of these methods:

  • Specify a nonstandard percentage rate to calculate for the year.

    For example, an employee might choose to withhold an additional 5% of earnings for student loan repayment. Assuming that the standard percentage rate is 10%, you enter 15 in the Percent field on the New Zealand Employee Tax ID Number form. You can also use this method to enter a percentage that is below the standard rate if Inland Revenue accepts the employee's appeal for a lower rate.

  • Calculate an additional flat amount over the standard repayment rate.

    For example, an employee might choose to repay 50 NZD in addition to the standard repayment amount. The system calculates the standard repayment amount and then adds to that amount the additional flat amount. The total amount is then deducted from the employee's pay for the student loan repayment. Therefore, if the standard rate is 10%, the employee would pay 10% of their earnings, plus 50 NZD toward their student loan.

  • Specify a flat amount to be withheld for the entire year.

    The employee can specify a flat amount to be withheld for the year. The amount is prorated over the number of pay periods in that year and deducted as a flat amount. For example, if the employee will repay 3600 NZD over the course of the year, and there are 24 pay periods in the year, the employee repays 150 NZD per pay period.

When you enter student loan repayment overrides using any of these methods, you must specify the beginning and ending date of the override. For example, if Inland Revenue grants an employee a lower student loan repayment rate, that rate is typically effective for only one tax year. The employee must then reapply for a lower rate. Using effective dating, you can set up the override record to stop calculating at the end of the tax year. The system then calculates the student loan repayment amount at the standard rate.

Note:

In a situation where the employee does not have enough earnings to deduct the full amount of the student loan repayment, the system will deduct as much as it can, including any additional amounts that are specified, until the employee's net pay is zero. The system does not put into arrears any student loan repayment amounts that cannot be collected due to insufficient earnings.

Note:

Before you use the student loan override functionality, you must verify that these fields exist in the F75Z0002 table:

NZSLPO

NZSLFAO

NZSLARR

NZSLEFD

NZSLETD

If these fields do not exist, you must run the table conversion program R75Z0005A to add these fields to the table.

5.4.3 Understanding National and Fiscal Data

After you enter employee tax information, you can review and revise national and fiscal data for the employee. Employee national and fiscal data includes the employee's residential and work tax areas, which the system supplies using the values that you enter when you set up the employee's tax information. In addition, you can enter the employee's Workers' Compensation code and National Occupation Classification (NOC) code, and you can specify whether the employee has any disabilities.

5.5 (NZL) Setting Up Schedular Payments

This section discusses an overview of Schedular Payments for New Zealand and discusses how to:

  • Set up pay types for Schedular Payments.

  • Set up tax rules for Schedular Payments.

  • Process Schedular Payments.

5.5.1 Understanding Schedular Payments

Due to recent changes in the withholding tax deductions, employers are now required to track and report regular pay along with the schedular payments. The employer monthly scheduled IRD file creates two records. One record represents the regular payment with the PAYE and the second record represents the gross schedular payment, earnings not liable, equal to the schedular payment plus the tax along with the tax code WT. This is applicable to all tax scales.

The gross amount of schedular payment and tax deducted is identified separately from normal gross pay and PAYE deducted. If you have an employee who receives both salary or wages and schedular payments, you can identify the amount of schedular payment and the normal salary and PAYE when you create the employer monthly schedule.

For example, if an employee gets a normal salary under the tax code M as well as schedular payments, you have two lines for the employee on the employer monthly schedule. One line shows the salary and PAYE with the tax code as M and the second line shows the gross schedular payment, earnings not liable for earner levy should be equal to gross schedular payment, and tax with a tax code of WT.

Before processing the schedular payment, you set up the tax information for the schedular payment. Tax information setup includes:

  • Adding tax input numbers 4, 5,7,8,9 to calculate schedular payment using the Tax Calculation Rules program (P75A0004).

  • Adding tax rules WT (Withholding tax) and WD (Non-Declaration tax) to the existing tax scales M, ML, ND and so on.

  • You must set up the tax area records for FEDERAL WT and WD. You use the Tax Area Information program (P069012) to enter these records.

After entering schedular payment information, you can process the employee through standard payroll processing. When you run the Write NZ IR File and Report program (R75Z0006) to report wages and taxes to the IRD, this report prints new record for schedular payments, based on the Payment File table (F07350) and Tax Detail File table (F07353), and writes tax ledger in the New Zealand Tax Ledger Detail table (F75Z0002).

5.5.2 Forms Used to Manage Schedular Payments

Form Name Form ID Navigation Usage
Tax Rules Revisions W75A0004B Australia/New Zealand Payroll Setup menu (G07BUSP41), Tax Calculation Rules, Tax Rules Revisions Add tax rules.
Pay Type Revisions W059116B Pay/Deduction/Benefit Setup (G05BD4), PDBA Setup, Work with PDBAs. Set up pay type.
Tax Exemption W05TAXA On the Work With PDBAs form, select a record, and then select Tax Exemptions from the Row menu. Set up tax information for PDBAs.

5.5.3 Setting Up Pay Types for Schedular Payments

Access the Pay Type Revisions form.

You create pay types for each rate of schedular payment. The pay types which the employees use, defines the rate of pay.

For example, if you set up pay type 50 with input 4, this leads to a 15% tax rate; pay type 51 with input 5 might lead to a 20% tax rate.

You use tax input numbers 4, 5, 7, 8, 9 on the Tax Exemptions form to calculate schedular payment.

5.5.4 Setting Up Tax Rules for Schedular Payments

Access the Tax Rule Revisions form.

You set up schedular taxes in the Tax Rule Maintenance Aus/ NZ program (P75A0004) using the tax inputs 4,5,7,8,9. Each input is associated with a different override rate. You set up the override rate in the tax rules. Currently, there are five override rates for the declaration tax scale and five tax rates for the non-declaration when paying a schedular payment. The rate that employees pay depends on their tax scale and the input numbers associated with each pay types. Additionally, there is a tax scale for contract employees. These tax scales are WT and WD (non-declaration).

For example, you add WT and WD records for tax scales M, ML, and ND.

Note:

When entering these records, you must use a unique output number for each rule type.

5.5.5 Processing Schedular Payments

After you have set up pay types and tax information, have entered schedular payments for the employees, and have processed the payment through payroll, you can generate government reports based on the payroll history that the system created.

You use the New Zealand IR file and Report program (R75Z0006), to report schedular payment information to the New Zealand government. The report includes both regular payments and schedular payments. The following illustration shows an example of this report.

Figure 5-2 Write New Zealand IR File and report

Surrounding text describes Figure 5-2 .
