Thanks for your suggestion @GBAStaff Anyone else who would like to the ability to accrue super regardless of whether or not the employee earns over the $450 threshold, please cast your vote here.
Please note, that if an employee earns less than the $450 threshold then they aren't technically eligible for the superannuation guarantee. The ATO requires you to report certain, non-compulsory amounts on the employee's payment summary. I strongly recommend that you speak to your accountant or the ATO to clarify reporting requirements, if you choose to accrue super for employees who earn under the threshold.
Also, please note that Essentials does correctly accrue superannuation for employee's who earn less than $450 in their first pay, but end up receiving more than $450 by the end of the month. Essentials exempts all pays from super until the $450 threshold is reached for the month. On the pay where the $450 threshold a superannuation amount equal to the amount for this pay, and all previous pays for the month is accrued (even if the single pay itself is less than $450).
