Client called – A new trainee staff had changed the Payroll Category from Hourly to Salary – and I noticed that Super had not been calculating since. Why?
Answer – The Super category (SG) works on the Gross Wages amount – works fine when using Base Hourly, but doesn’t work if using Base Salary. If you turn staff back to Base Hourly, you can easily get MYOB to “catch-up” the missing super for a month – the software works on monthly sections for super – so it always checks the total against the (now 9.5%, July 2014) month to date.
Simply run a pay-run, but zero out the hours and the pay should all come to zero. If super is not correct for the month (can do dates in/of the month earlier to check also in another pay-run with zero hours) MYOB will put an amount in to balance the month. Make sure the pay amount is still zero, record, say yes to “VOID” the cheque.
