Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Oracle HRMS (Australia) - Version 11.5.10.2 to 12.2 [Release 11.5 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, Australian Payroll
  
ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
The state total on the Payroll Tax Report by Legal Employer (PYAUPYT) does not balance to the breakdown because some payments are not eligible for payroll tax in all states such as Paternity Leave Payments.
  
The element for the payment of paternity leave has a balance feed to the seeded balance 'Payroll_Tax_Salaries_Wages'. This element also has balance feeds to the States for which payroll tax is applicable:
  
- Payroll_Tax_TAS
- Payroll_Tax_VIC
  
It does not have balance feeds to the States for which payroll tax is exempt:
  
  - Payroll_Tax_NSW
  - Payroll_Tax_NT
 

The element is included in the balance Payroll_Tax_Salaries_Wages even when there is no feed for that state and therefore the breakdown exceeds the state total.
   
STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Set up paid paternity leave to feed the balance Payroll_Tax_Salaries_Wages but not the balance Payroll_Tax_NSW
2. Pay an employee paternity leave
3. Run the Payroll Tax Report by Legal Employer
4. Reconcile the total for NSW to the breakdown and the difference is the paternity leave payment
  
BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, the breakdown of payroll tax from the seeded report cannot be used to reporting to the sate revenue office.
