Termination pay breakdown on employee pay advices

Pay advices have been enhanced to include the breakdown of components that make up a termination pay. This allows an employee to see the breakdown of the amounts paid for Termination Payments A, B, and D on their final pay slip.

Option to display BSB and Account Number on pay advices

You can now choose to display the BSB and Account Number of an employee's pay on pay advices. To do so, on the Options tab of Print Pay Advices (Payroll | Reports | Pre-process Pays | Pay Advices), select the Show Bank Details tick box.
