Monday 7 August 2017
Late last week NSWA informed us that in addition to the 2016/2017 PAYG payment summary errors identified with respect to reportable fringe benefits, there has also been errors on the reporting of the payment of Crib Away allowances for some staff for both the 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 financial years.
NSWA indicated that affected employees will be contacted and issued a new payment summary by the end of last week that will contain correct reporting of crib away allowance and/or fringe benefits. By now, all impacted employees should have been contacted and issued with new summaries. If you believe you are an impacted employee who has not yet been contacted, please contact HealthShare NSW in the first instance on 1300 477 679.
NSWA has also committed to paying the reasonable costs (such as accountant fees) of those affected that have already lodged their 2015/2016 and/or 2016/2017 tax returns. We commend them for taking this step. We are currently waiting on NSWA to inform us what the process is for employees who wish to claim reasonable costs and will provide you with these details as soon as practicable.
