Is there a way to set up a super category so it only calculates super up to 38 hours per pay period, as we dont distinguish overtime but would like to only pay super for the nominal hours per week
Solved! Go to Solution.
Welcome to the MYOB Community Forum, I hope you find it a great resource.
Within the AccountRight, currently the only limits that can be set are either a set dollar amount per pay period or a percentage of a specific wage category. If you were wanting to have a hard limit for the superannuation for that employee, you could work out the superannuation dollar value for the nominal hours and set the limit based on the calculation.
This workaround would mean that unless every employee worked the same number of nominal hours with the same wage rate, you would need to have separate wage categories for each employee who either has a different hourly amount or works a different number of nominal hours.
Please do feel free to post any other questions that you may have
Fairwork control wages but ATO control super - should you ever have a an ATO audit, for whatever reason, they will go through your payroll and investigate amounts that do not equal 9.5% of Gross Wages. If you can evidence these as overtime then they will not take any action. On the other hand if you are going to set up a system has no overtime and a mismatch of SGC and Gross they will ask lots of questions and their standard penalty is 200% of amounts owed.
Withstanding that you limit super payments by limiting the hourly categories that is seen as attracting super. You can set up a wages category that is Additional Hours for hours in excess of 38. Under super you then need to Exempt Additional Hours before calculating Super.
