Easy way to pay Super guarantee shortfall to a terminated employee?

Hi all

I recently identified that I had not set MYOB up correctly to automatically calculate the Super Guarantee percentage increases.


The solution from the MYOB phone support team was to retract all incorrect pays (15 months worth of them!) and re do them so MYOB could calculate the correct amounts to pay for super.  I said a quick NO WAY to this and manually calculated the differences (we only have 9 employees so it was no biggie).  And then I ran a zero pay update - and adjusted the super guarantee amounts.  When I do my next quarterly payment the additional amounts will be included.  So fixed.  Except...


One of the employees who was short paid - has since been terminated. 


I don't really want to "unterminate" him and then do a zero pay and pay him the super difference and then reterminate him - if I can avoid it.  Is there a way around this?

Many thanks

Hi @MelBee,


Thanks for reaching out. 


In order to do the super adjustment, it would need to be processed through Process payroll, therefore, the employee would need to be made 'Active' again with the termination date removed from their card. 


You won't need to reverse/delete their historical (incorrect) pay runs as you've been advised, instead, you can just process a super adjustment through a pay run for the affected months, with the calculated difference. 


If you need any further assistance with this, please do let me know.
