Unused Leave on termination should not be included in the calculation for HELP & SFSS
When a staff member terminates and they have elected that they have a HELP/SFSS debt, we currently deduct a periodic version of these tax payments from their annual leave/LSL payout.
The amount of the HELP/SFSS tax to be deducted is calculated by the system.
We have just located a link on the ATO website which states that we are not to withhold unused leave on termination for HELP/SFSS. Please find the link below.
