Cards: Subcontractors/Suppliers to have option for Superannuation/Workcover

It would be useful to have a tick box available in a suppliers card file for when a supplier/subcontractor is entitled to Super and/or WorkCover.  it could then allow for a report to be done showing total payments made to these suppliers at the end of the financial year to include within your WorkCover calculations or each month/quarterly for Super to be paid for them.

    As our contractors have an abn and work mostly for us - we are obliged to calculate superannuation on their "ordinary hours". Currently I calculate super for each day monday to Friday that they have worked being it 8 hours or less. ie is they work 11 hours then we calculate super at 8 hours.

    I have to manually add this up for each month in a spreadsheet and process it as an expense in Myob.

    would be good to be able to get MYOB to generate it automatically like it does for the end of year report, when we have the "flag" set.


    If they don't have a PTY LTD company they are still considered to be an employee and need to have super paid, but they opt to work under their own abn.

      Assuming that you are already using the payroll function to enter these hours there is a fairly simple way to limit the number of hours which contribute to super. Create a new Wages category called Additional Hours, exempt it from Superannuation and tick this for each subbie. As you run the pay add any 'overtime' to Additional Hours . The effect will be that Super will only calculate on the Base hourly figure

      Have a look at SGR 2009/2 on the ATO Website.


      I understand regular overtime is deemed to be OTE.


      Hope this helps.

      ??? The first line of the table says that Overtime is not OTE, which by implication means that it is not included in super calculations.
