13 Jun 2019 Ordinary time earnings – annual leave loading
Superannuation Guarantee Ruling SGR 2009/2 provides the ATO’s view that annual leave loading will be ordinary time earnings (OTE) unless it is referable to a lost opportunity to work overtime:
238. By way of exception an annual leave loading that is payable under some awards and industrial agreements is not OTE if it is demonstrably referable to a notional loss of opportunity to work overtime. However, the loading is always included in 'salary or wages'.
