Clarification regarding Maternity Fund Contributions reporting on FSS documents/data
February 8, 2017
Whenever Maternity Fund contributions are being reported in the Social Security information on the FS3 form or electronic lodgement Social Security file, the basic weekly wage, number of contributions and category must still be reported; notwithstanding the fact that social security contribution deductions may not be applicable.
The FS3, FS5, FS7 documents and electronic lodgement data being submitted must have the Maternity Fund fields included within, even where such contributions may not be applicable.
The submission of documents/data pertaining to basis year 2015 and onwards, without such fields, will not be accepted by the Department.Back to News
