Area Allowances

Area allowances are paid for work in certain zones and in place of paying for the cost of accomodation.

We have treated Area Allowances as a domestic travel allowances up to reasonable limits for tax purposes, meaning it does not form part of Ordinary Times Earnings (0% super guarantee), does not have tax withheld and is excluded from being reported in the payment summary. If this does not align with your circumstances, you may wish to change these settings in the 'Pay Category' screen.

Our Award package provides employee tags for each area shown on the map. As an alternative to these, you may like to assign these allowances to certain locations using custom rules. Review our video on how to create site allowances for more details here.

To assist with understanding when area allowances are applied to different parts of Australia, we have included this interactive Google Map which is an interpretation of how these areas are described in the award. Click on the shaded area to bring up details from the Award.
