If you pay wages to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander employees under the Community Development Employment Program (CDEP), you must create one or more income types to cater for CDEP wages.
To indicate that an income type is to be used for CDEP earnings, set its CDEP Earnings field to Yes. The hours applicable to CDEP wages are entered on a separate line from normal wages. The total CDEP payment will be stored for the financial year. When a payment summary is produced, the value will be printed in the CDEP Salary or Wages box.
Note: Attaché Payroll does not calculate Study and Training Support Loans amounts on CDEP wages. For each employee who has a Study and Training Support Loans debt, in the employee masterfile set the employee's Tax Scale field to an appropriate tax scale to allow calculation of the additional tax to be deducted.
