Our Client has been trialing a replacement bookkeeper, who called us asking what are the best reports to use for paying the super last month?
Answer is to look in the Super folder when we did the super last month to temporarily do the books while a new bookkeeper was being advertised, see the reports we used:
1. Superannuation Employee Advice Detail (or Summary) – is good as it allows you to see all the pay weeks/periods and the total super;
2. Payroll Activity Summary – dated for the last month 1st to 31st, as long as no deductions are being used, the Expenses column at the Right is all super, per staff member and should match the employee totals – and will also give the TOTAL super so you can reconcile to the total on the online data you enter in your SuperStream super fund portal;
3. Paying – The superannuation should all match, print the contribution once reconciles, for proof, and finish as per method of your chosen portal. MYOB Super is a great method Free with a Subscription, that takes less than 10 min or so to pay the super for 30 staff for one client, we assist. And the ATO Small Business Super Clearing House is great for up to 19 employees – login, fill in the amounts, get a Bpay or EFT detail to confirm and print, and pay from your banking online.
