Salary sacrifice

Hi, I am trying to allocate 2 employees with 2 different amounts of salary sacrifice as 2 separate set amounts per week. No matter that I tick user User - Entered amount per pay period it keeps changing the other employee amount to the one I'm changing and vis versa. They are not allocating as 2 seperate amounts. How do I fix this please.

I have ticked the salary sacrifice tab for the 2 employees, and the User- entered amount but it won't keep the 2 separate deductions. They are both set amounts not a percentage.

Re: Salary sacrifice

Hi @Sleeper1 


Payroll Categories are applied to all employees that have been linked to that category. For example, if you have two employees linked to a category, the calculation basis would apply two both employees. If you have two employees that need to have a different calculation basis for a payroll category i.e. two different amounts you would be looking at having 2 different payroll categories set up for them, one linked to each employee. Help Article: Superannuation outlines the setting up on another superannuation payroll category if required.

Kind regards,
Steven

Re: Salary sacrifice

Hi Stephen,

I tried to set up a new category, but I couldn't the same categories to come up to replicate the default Salary Sacrifice already in MYOB.

EG. ATO Reporting Category: Reportable Employee Super Contributions. Which is under the 2-1410 Payroll Accruals Payable.

Realistically there will never be the same salary sacrifice amount for 2 employees (unless it's a fluke).

Surely the tab that says User - Entered Amount per Pay Period should default to the employee selected and not default to everyone who nominates a Salary Sacrifce so I don't have to set up a duplicate Catergory for each employee, not that I have been able to do this yet.

Is there a way to duplicate the Salary Sacrifice deduction catergory so it is reportable to the ATO.

Jenny

Re: Salary sacrifice

Hi @Sleeper1 

 

There is no direct way to duplicate a payroll category. However, you would be able to go to Payroll>>Payroll Categories>>Superannuation and review the category you want to duplicate. Once that has been reviewed, you would select New and enter the same information as the other category.

 

The other option rather than duplicating the category and does only work if the employees are sacrificing the same amount each pay (could be a different amount per employee linked) is:

  1. Navigate to Payroll>>Payroll Categories>>Superannuation
  2. Select that desired category
  3. Ensure the Calculation basis to be User-entered amount per pay
  4. Select Ok
  5. Navigate to the employee's card - Card File>>Cards Lists>>Employee>>Select the employee
  6. Select Payroll Details
  7. Select Standard Pay
  8. Enter the amount that the employee wishes to deduct as a negative in the Amount column for that salary sacrifice category
  9. Select OK

Adding that amount to the Standard pay will ensure that it does appear per pay for that employee. It can, of course, be overridden on a per-pay basis, if required.

Kind regards,
Steven

Re: Salary sacrifice

Thanks Stephen,

Yes the second way works. Phew. 

Thank you.

The first way doesn't work as you can't get the same link to the ATO.
