One of the greatest benefits of being on one of Tanda’s Managed Award Templates is that we keep your award rules up to date and compliant. There are two kinds of updates that can be made to Managed Awards.

  • Regular updates occur from time to time based on changes made by Fair Work Australia to an Award over the course of the year.
  • July 1 updates happen at the End of Financial Year, and involve updating the minimum wages of all staff based on the national minimum wage review.

Regular Award Updates

If Fair Work make an update to an Award, Tanda will let you know when this update is ready to be pushed to your Tanda account and Payroll & Accounting system. 

There will be a message at the top of the Timesheets and Payroll Manager page in Tanda to alert you.

To update the Award, go to Payroll > Payroll Manager:

You will then see a blue Update Award button next to the relevant Awards that have an update:

Click the Update Award button:

You will then know that this has updated as the Last Updated column in the Award information has the current date:

System information

For MYOB AccountRight Live and Xero customers, staff pay rates in your payroll system will be automatically updated before your process your next pay run.  Please remember to check any staff which have a custom or above award rate applied on their profile in Tanda.  

Note: if  you are updating the templates just before needing to export to payroll, we recommend forcing a template update from the "Manage Award" page on each template.  Please allow 20 minutes for these changes to take affect in your payroll system.  

For MYOB Desktop and Reckon Accounts customers, you will need to update the rates in your payroll software after finalising your payroll for last financial year. When you click the update button, you’ll be redirected to a report of new pay rates for the new year.
