An employee might be owed back pay to account for a wage increase, or to make up for an incorrect pay rate.
Back pay is the difference between:
Once you've worked out the back pay amount, you can include it on the employee's next pay.
Before proceeding, make sure you've updated the employee's pay details to reflect their updated wage.
OK, let's step you through how to handle back pay.
The easiest way to work this out is to review a sample pay for the employee.
The Payroll Activity (Detail) report provides this information.
To calculate the back pay, subtract what the employee was actually paid from what they should have been paid.
This example shows the employee should have been paid $1500 in gross pay but was actually paid $1400. This also determines that an additional $10 of tax should have been withheld.
You can now include the back pay in the employee's next pay.
By default, the Back Pay wage category is not exempt from superannuation. This means back pay will be included in superannuation calculations.
