Handling of GST Changes in Ace Payroll

  • GST changes from 12.5% to 15% on 1st October 2010.
  • This change has almost no impact on the Ace Payroll software itself.
  • The only clients who need to make a change are those that pay contractors using Ace Payroll and show the GST in the payroll.
  • If in this situation, you will have GST set up as a Non Taxable Allowance based on 12.5% of gross.
  • Follow these steps to make the change.

From the front screen select Modify An Allowance


Select the allowance, then click the Calculation Method panel.


The Percentage of Total Gross calculation method will already be ticked.

Click over percentage rate as circled.


Change the value from 12.5 to 15.

  • Once the above change is made any contractor where GST is paid will automatically change from 12.5% to 15%.
  • For this reason ensure you do not change the GST rate until after you have filed the final September pay.
