Changes to Payment Summaries

24-05-2019

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a legislative change to the way employers report their employee’s salary, tax and superannuation information to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

Like most employers CSCS and CSU are now required to report year to date earnings information every payday. Previously this information was reported annually via payment summaries. CSCS and CSU commenced fortnightly year to date reporting to the ATO on 2 May. You can log into your myGov account and view your year to date salary information.

STP removes the requirement for CSCS and CSU to produce Payment Summaries. Payment Summaries have been replaced by income statements which once finalised (normally first week of July) can be accessed via your myGov account. This means from the 2018/19 financial year onwards you will access your income statement (previously known as a Payment Summary) via your myGov account.

It should also be noted the ATO will regularly share STP information with other government agencies such as Centrelink and Child Support.

Memo - Safe Loading of Mobile Garbage Bins

Tuesday, 3rd March 2015

Memo from Ed Maher, Manager CSU Green, Ken Simpson (Manager, Work Health & Safety (Facilities), Division of Facilities Management), Martin Dooner (General Manager, Charles Sturt Campus Services)

Dear All,

There have been repeated instances across CSU of 240 litre mobile garbage bins that are used for the collection of general waste and recyclables being overloaded. Overloading these bins creates a significant manual handling issue for the staff that are required to wheel the bins from the building to the nearest collection point for emptying.

Overloading of 240 litre mobile garbage bins is most frequently observed following an office clean-up where bins have been loaded with dense waste items such as compacted paper or books. This often results in the bin weight significantly exceeding the limit that can be safely be moved by a single staff member or emptied.

The Division of Facilities Management (DFM), CSU Green and Charles Sturt Campus Services seek the assistance and co-operation of all CSU staff in this matter to ensure that bins are no longer overloaded.
If you or your colleagues have a requirement to dispose of a large volume of dense waste items such as paper or text books, please log a BEIMS request in advance via the registered BEIMS user in your building. You can also contact DFM to discuss a suitable waste collection solution, if you are unsure of your requirements, on internal extension 86DFM (86336).

Overweight bins cannot be moved for emptying and cleaning staff have been instructed to leave them in place for their own safety. Over the coming weeks, a sticker will be placed on bins to remind staff about this.

Edward Maher
Manager, CSU Green
