(Doc ID 2271734.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 30, 2018

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Australia/New Zealand Payroll - Version 9.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


As of January 1, 2017, tax rates will change for working holiday makers who are in Australia on a 417 or 462 visa. These rates are known as working holiday maker tax rates. This means that payroll processing will need to withhold 15% from every dollar earned up to $37,000 with foreign resident tax rates applying from $37,001. Also, two payment summaries will need to be issued (with different rates) this year - one for the period to 31 December 2016 and a second for any period from 1 January 2017. The functionality needs to be added and published in the Tax Rules and Tax Scales to accommodate the legislative change for the Australia Working Holiday Maker Tax.
