After you have enabled the Managed Award Template, you will need to classify your staff. You can do this by going to Payroll > Payroll Manager:

Under Active Awards, you will see the list of the Managed Award Templates you have on your account. If you don't have this heading, you haven't added your Award yet. You can check out the Enable Managed Award Template article for more information. 

At the end of the row you, click the blue Add Staff button: 

To categorise staff in the one award, just click the white All staff are on the same award button at the top and the Award will automatically populate next to each employee:

To select between different Awards or Custom Rules, click the Choose an award drop-down next to each employee and select the relevant option:

The Custom Payroll Setup option is used for staff that you don't want to pay as per the award or if you have custom rules in your account. 

Next, you'll need to select which Employment Type and Classification/Level staff are employed under in the Award. If you're not sure, at the top of the page is a link to Fair Work which lists common job roles for each level that you can check against, or you can contact Fair Work.

To assign, just click the drop-down and select the option for the two columns:

  • Salaried staff will just be assigned to the Salaried Employment Type but won't have a Level. It's important to classify Salaried staff on the Award as this lets the system know not to export a Timesheet for this employee, as they'll have a Pay Template setup in your Payroll & Accounting system. Check out the Salaried Staff article for more information. 
  • If you can't see a Classification or Level type that you need to apply, some Awards have hundreds of sub-levels so it might not be listed. Just select the Type for now and leave the Classification empty and you'll need to contact Support on the details at the bottom. They can either advise which level to select or how to create the level.  
  • If you pay an employee a rate higher than the Award, you can override this within their individual profile. Check out the Configure Individual Profile for Payroll article for more information. 

The next step is to integrate Tanda with your Payroll system. This needs to be done after you have completed your last payrun in your existing practice as Tanda may change the way this occurs. It will also need to be done before you're ready to export your first payrun from Tanda, or allowing a bit more time than normal when you complete your payrun. For more information on completing this integration, check out the Payroll Integration article. 

If you would like further assistance please contact Tanda Support by clicking on the blue chat icon in the bottom right corner, on 1300 859 117 or
