The Australian Government Department of Human Services has set a minimum amount that must remain in a person’s wage after tax and child support has been deducted. This amount is termed as Protected Earnings Amount (PEA). The PEA is reviewed each year and adjusted on 1 January to allow for increases in the cost of living. For the year 2016, the PEA from 1 January is set to $354.45. This is the amount that must be set aside for your employee/contractor after tax and Child Support is deducted. In order to ensure compliance with these legislative initiatives Oracle has published a revised position statement on My Oracle Support, Document ID 1985727.1. We encourage our customers to review the latest Statement to keep up to date.
