Important changes to payroll deadlines next week

Please be aware of the following changes to payroll processing dates next week.

Cut off dates for the submission of all timesheets and other supporting documentation for salary payments have been brought forward due to the Easter Holidays observed on 29 March and 1 April 2024.

To enable timely processing of payments for pay fortnight ending Friday 29 March 2024, it is important that all staff and supervisors are aware of the deadlines outlined below:

Pay period ending

Due date for all documentation that cannot be submitted in Staff Connect

Due date for timesheets and other claims in Staff Connect

Approved and submitted via Service Central:

Due to the compression of the payroll processing schedule, it will not be possible to process manual claims received after the above deadlines.

For your reference, the 2024 Payment Calendar is available from the ACU Staff website.

Thank you for your cooperation.
