Standard Pay - Non-Cash Benefits

Non-Cash Benefits are loaded in one-by-one to complete the benefits required for the employee's total salary package per pay period. To enter standard pay deductions select the Non-Cash Benefits button on the left of the Standard Pay tab.

Exempt from Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) This option is available for Fringe Benefits, if the company is exempt from FBT (as determined by the options on the Employer details section of the Setup Payroll window). When an employer is exempt from FBT, it is still possible for employees for an employee to perform some duties that are exempt from Fringe Benefits Tax, and some duties that are not. You can edit this option to control whether or not individual Fringe Benefits are exempt from FBT.

Once you have completed this window click Save or press F10 to save and return to the Non-Cash Benefits window. If further deductions are to be loaded for this employee, click Add or press F4 and repeat the process until all the deductions have been entered.
