Payroll: Calculate superannuation for all employee regardless of age (under 18 year old included)

I know that superannuatin is only compulsory for under 18 year olds if they work more than 30 hours a week, but it would be good if MYOB could have an option for allowing superannuation to be automatically calculated by MYOB for those employers who want to pay it to all employees.


Currently, it is only automatically calculated when the pay includes more than 30 hours for the staff member.  I have an under 18 who we pay superannuation for (regardless of hours worked), and so I have to remember to manually add it in to each pay.

    Great idea, I have the same problem.  We employ several under 18 year olds and pay them superannuation regardless of the number of hours they work and each payroll cycle I have to remember to manually calculate their super.

    I just do it quarterly with the Super Reconciliation.

    Email the "super update payslip" to the employee then.
