Unable to pay super guarantee for amounts below $450.00

Legacy KB ID: 5482

Question

Why can’t I record a super guarantee contribution for an employee who is earning less than the $450.00 threshold?


The Issue:

IPA Books+ Payroll does not currently support award interpretation and determines the superannuation threshold based on the legislated superannuation guarantee (see here)


We do plan to release award interpretations to manage these scenarios in the future.

Answer

Currently, the only workaround is to enter the employee's super amount as a YTD figure.

PLEASE NOTE: By completing this workaround, these super amounts will not display on payroll reports. They will however display for Single Touch Payroll (STP).

Please see below for full instructions:
  1. Go to the COG wheel > Settings
  2. Click "YTD set up" underneath the "Payroll settings" heading
  3. Click the "Pays" tab and click "Add pays"
  4. Click the button "Add new row"
  5. Enter an employee, the relevant super payroll item, super fund product, pay period end date and amount
  6. Add a reference if you wish. This is not a mandatory field.
  7. Click "Save & close"
  8. For each pay cycle (weekly, fortnightly, monthly) you will need to go back and edit these YTD figures.

How did we do?

“Invalid Company Information error” in GovConnect STP when submitting pays from IPA Books+

“Error reading selected bank transactions” when clicking on Reconcile on the Banking Screen
