employee super contibutions

Hi ,  I want to set up one employee, who requested to make  extra  pretax  super  contributions  from his  pay.

I see  , i have a  category  allready  set up under  payroll.   When  i  click into this, i have  set up the amount, per  pay  he wants to pay, and  added  Employee name in settings.


But , its  linked  account  is  set up as   GL  2-1411  Super  Liability.

All the other super  company  categories, have two linked  accounts.  1-  the super liablity, and  2-  the  Super  expense  account.  6-5151. 

Do  i also  need to  fix   the  new  Employee Addtional category, to be the same ?

As this is a R.E.S.C amount (https://www.ato.gov.au/Business/Super-for-employers/In-detail/Salary-sacrifice/Reportable-employer-s...) you need to have it linked to a seperate account than the normal Super G'Tee amounts.

Also is it just additional super or salary sacrifice? There is a big difference in that the additional does not effect your PAYG where as the salary sacrifice does.

There are some very good support note on this - check these out;
