Pay Period 23 includes the beginning of the 2019 annualisation

For employees previously annualised in 2018:

Any employee who was annualised for the 2018 year and has chosen to be annualised for the 2019 year will need to be aware of the split that will occur in Pay Period 23.

Pay Period 23 this year has a date range of the 30 January 2019 - 12 February 2019. Annualisation for the 2018 year is complete on the 30 January 2019. Annualisation for 2019 is effective from the 31 January 2019.

For pay purposes this will result in:

  • 1 day at 2018 annualisation rate
  • 13 days at 2019 annualisation rate

Pay Period 24 will be as normal and will show a full fortnightly pay at the 2019 annualisation rate, matching the amount showing on the "Wage Calculation" section of the NOVO23nt form.


For employees who were not annualised in 2018, but are for 2019:

New annualised employees for 2019 may appear to be slightly underpaid for PP23 - this is due to the annualisation period start date.

Pay Period 23 this year has a date range of the 30 January 2019 - 12 February 2019. Annualisation for 2019 is effective from the 31 January 2019.

As Pay Period 23 started on 30 January 2019, but annualisation doesn't start until a day later, all new annualised employees will only be paid from 31 January 2019, but any hours worked between 28 and 30 January inclusive (if advised on the NOVO23nt) will be included in the calculation that determines their aggregate percentage and therefore their fortnightly annualised pay.

Please note that this was not an issue in 2018 as the pay period start date was the same as the annualisation start date.
