Version 8.5 was released in December 2010 to all PAY-PACK customers whose maintenance is up-to-date.
Paid Parental Leave (PPL) came into effect on 1 January 2011. From 1 July 2011, it will be compulsory for employers to pay the amount to eligible employees, and deduct tax. The Government will send the money to the payer in advance. PAY-PACK handles PPL very well. Note that the payment is not subject to super, and the payee does not accrue holiday or sick leave.
With this version it is possible to send pay slips by email to employees. This will require the use of two other software packages.
