Employer Additional Superannuation that is REPORTABLE (RESC), please add this function when creating a pay event. With STP now becoming compulsary how about Essentials makes sure its payroll has all of the usual functions available in all its software so small businesses can use Essentials and not have to upgrade to the more expensive AccountRight.

100% agree, how can clients (or for that matter MYOB's software) be ATO compliant if the additional Employer super contributions arent being reported correctly as reportable contributions? The capability exists in AccountRight, surely it can be put into Essentials? Please fix this ASAP MYOB!

Agree - have just spent over 2 hours with live chat and also a phone call to MYOB and they are virtually saying go back to old system of paper PAYG Summaries. Only problem is the EMPDUPE file that MYOB produces is then not correct. This is part of STP and am quite happy to manually add when doing the PAYG Summaries for end of financial year. The fix they suggested using a deduction is great if it worked. Can up as "invalid" as it went negative. Was really easy in Account Right.

We moved from Account Right as they said this was a better option for us as a small business and it going to be fully compliant with STP. So far it isn't compliant

With the introduction of STP reporting it is essential that the ability to report Employer Additional Super (RESC) is added to MYOB Essentials.  Prior to STP it was possible to include RESC on the payment summary via a manual workaround.  The product now has reduced functionality so I would argue we should have a reduction in the subscription fee until this fix is achieved.

This is a basic function that should be in Essentials.

How else can the ATO STP requirements be met?

Not Goood Enough.

Has anyone heard anything more about Reportable Superannuation in Essentials? Are they hoping this issue will just go away? Software is not STP compliant without this item .
