To increase the maximum liable earnings that self-employed and businesses pay Work Account levies on as outlined below:

Employees and private domestic workers (Work and Earners’ Accounts) $130,911 $136,544
Self-employed people (Work and Earner’s Accounts) $130,911 $136,544
To increase the minimum liable earnings that self-employed people pay Work and Earners' levies on to $42,465 in 2022/23.

FBT will be payable at the rate of 49.25% for all employees with all-inclusive pay under $129,681.

Negative Prior Period Adjustments:
From 28 October 2021, the prior period adjustment fields in the Employment information (‘Prior period gross adjustments’ and ‘Prior period PAYE adjustments’) will accept negative values. However, any negative amounts entered cannot be more than the corresponding amounts in the ‘Gross earnings and/or scheduler payments’ field and ‘PAYE / tax’ field for the line item. I.e. The line can be reduced to zero, but not below
Oracle: The Gross and PAYG Prior Period Adjustments fields were already delivered as part of PDR2. The system prints Prior Period Adjustment fields as zero (0) as these are not derived from any delivered element in the system. Kindly be aware that as per the recent change employers can now also input negative values in these fields and any negative amounts entered cannot be more than the corresponding amounts in the ‘Gross earnings and/or scheduler payments’ field and ‘PAYE / tax’ field for the line item.
Tax code lines record (TED) validation: As of 2 February 2022, a Tax code line record (TED) must be included when sending an Employee details line record (DED). If a TED is not included, a validation error will be returned for the file.
Oracle: This is already part of the PDR2 solution delivered. Currently when you generate the PDR file, a TED record follows a DED record in the file. There is no changes required to be made for this.
Exclude ESS from Total Gross Earnings value: The sum of the gross earnings for all employees for the payday being reported as calculated from Employer pay records. Do not include Employee Share Scheme payments in this field.
Oracle: This is already part of the PDR2 solution delivered. Currently the "Total Gross Earnings" does NOT include the ESS payments, which are reported in separate fields.
Child support code
Oracle: All the codes are already part of the PDR2 solution delivered. And there are no additional changes we observed after detail analysis.
