Add a new employee to Pay Super payments

AccountRight Plus and Premier only

This topic explains how to add new employees to Pay Super payments. It assumes you've already signed up and make Pay Super payments.

When a new employee starts, you set up an employee card to enter their payroll and superannuation details. This includes adding superannuation payroll categories, selecting a super fund and entering a super fund membership number. When you record a pay, any superannuation contributions are automatically tracked and ready to be included in your next Pay Super payment.

If your employee nominates a super fund you haven't used before, you'll need to set up the fund for Pay Super payments.

Before paying your new employee, it's a good idea to check they're ready to go.

Are your superannuation categories set up correctly? 

Check that the super payroll categories you've linked to your employees are of the Superannuation category type, not Employer Expense. Only super amounts allocated to payroll categories listed in the Superannuation view of the Payroll Category List (Payroll command centre) can be processed using Pay Super.
