Superannuation guarantee Payments in Australia must be paid for all employees (there are some minor exceptions) that are paid $450 or more in any calender month .
However if the employee is under 18 years of age they must also ( in addition to the $450 requirement) work at least 30 hours per week . This 30 hour requirement is confirmed by both "Australian Tax Office " and " Fairwork Australia"
MYOB does not have the 30 hour requirement in the algorithm , and as a consequence my business which employees a large number of junior casual staff has been paying superannuation unnecessarily . (Over $2,500 in the last two years)
I run MYOB Accountright Plus with the latest updates
MYOB product specialist agrees the 30 hour test is not in their software.
This issue can be worked around by "de checking " superannuation in the card file and reinstating if the employee works 30 hours , but this is not the type of activity that should need to be done.
I suggest MYOB correct their software
'MYOB AccountRight Plus does not treat Superannuation correctly"
Thanks for your suggestion @SteveHneedshelp. Anyone else who would like to be able to automatically exclude employees under the age of 18 who work less than 30 hours a week from superannuation calculations, please cast your vote here.
