    Question: I have entered a FBT amount and it is not showing on my Payment Summary for the financial year, I use QuickBooks QBi.
    How do I report a FBT amount on my Payment Summary in QBi?


    The FBT year is the 12 months beginning 1 April and ending 31 March.


    To report FBT for the 20x0/x1 financial year, the FBT should be entered between the 1 April 20x0 and 31 March 20x1.

    Setting up the item:

    You will need to create (if you do not already have one) a dummy bank account - call it Payroll Clearing Account.

    Go to the Payroll Item List and select New. Follow the prompts at each window, as described below.

    • Payroll Item Type:
      Choose the Company Contribution item type.

    • Name Used In Payments & Payroll Reports:
      Select a suitable name (e.g. FBT).

    • Agency for company-paid liability:
      Agency - you can leave this blank;
      Payroll Liability Account - the dummy Payroll Clearing Account
      Expense Account - the dummy Payroll Clearing Account.

    • Tax Tracking Type:
      This needs to be assigned to Reportable Fringe Benefits. QuickBooks will now show all amounts assigned to this item under the Reportable Fringe Benefits section of the employee's INB Payment Summary.

    • Taxes:
      Untick PAYG so that PAYG tax isn't calculated on the FBT item.

    • Calculate Based On Quantity:

    Question: RESC amount on the Payment Summary is incorrect or does not agree with my payroll reports

    Why is QuickBooks reporting the RESC amount on the Payment Summary incorrectly?


    The RESC field will report all Super amounts paid from pre-tax earnings above the statutory 9%, or where a collective agreement exists, above the agreed rate.  For more information on RESC users should refer to their accountants or click here for the ATO’s information page.


    QuickBooks reports all super salary sacrifice (SS) and employer additional (EA) super items to RESC.  QuickBooks will also report amounts in excess of the statutory 9% for Super Guarantee Act (SA), and in excess of the collective agreement rate (CA) super items, if the option Calculate RESC difference for SA and/or CA payroll items is ticked in Preferences for Payroll & Employees. 


    QuickBooks will only make the calculations for RESC for pays processed in QuickBooks 2009/10 R2 versions and later.  If you did not upgrade to QuickBooks 2009/10 R2 or later before processing your first pay in the financial year, then the pays processed before the upgrade will not have RESC calculated and are not being reported in the Payment Summary.

    YTD adjustments with RESC-related items will not be included on reports, but they will be included in the payment summary. 



    Solution 1:  If you upgraded to QuickBooks 2009/10 R2 or later after the first pay in the financial year had been processed.

    Solution 2:  If all pays have been processed in QuickBooks 2009/10 R2 and later.

    Before starting on a solution, make a new backup of your company file.  Do not override existing backups.

    Solution 1:  If you upgraded to QuickBooks 2009/10 R2 or later after the first pay in the financial year has been processed.

    1. Ensure your company file is configured to calculate RESC for excess super in SA and CA super items:

      1. Click on Edit, then Preferences, then Payroll & Employees and then Company Preferences;
      2. Tick the box Calculate RESC difference for SA and/or CA payroll items and click OK.

    2. Open each pay processed before the upgrade and refresh all RESC-related super items – SA, CA, SS and EA:

      1. Click on Reports, then Employees & Payroll and select Payroll Item Detail;
      2. Click on the Modify Report button and change the date range to the period 1 July 2009 to the pay before the upgrade;
      3. Click on Filter and in the choose Filter box select Payroll Item;
      4. In the Payroll Item box select Multiple payroll items;
      5. Then select all super payroll items of SS and EA and any SA and CA type items that paid excess amounts; click on OK;
      6. Print out the report.
      7. Double click on the first item to open the Paycheque window;
      8. Click on the Paycheque Detail button to open the Review Paycheque window;
      9. Click on Unlock Net Pay at the bottom of the screen, take note of the releveant super amounts, delete these super items, reinput the super items with the same amounts;
      10. click OK to save changes and close the Review Paycheque window; click Save & Close to save the Paycheque window;
      11. continue with these steps until all relevant super items for all affected employees have been refreshed.  

    Your Payment Summaries should now report RESC correctly.


    Solution 2:  If all pays have been processed in QuickBooks 2009/10 R2 and later

    1. click on Reports, then Super Report by Employee;
    2. click on the Modify Reports button and change date to This Financial Year;
    3. in the columns box tick RESC Amount and click OK;
    4. Examine the RESC Amount column entries for irregularities;
    5. Correct errors by refreshing the relevant pays – follow steps 3(g) to 3(k) above.
    6. Continue until all irregularities resolved.

    Your Payment Summaries should now report RESC correctly.

    If this step did not resolve the problem completely, repeat these steps with a Super Report by Fund.

    Question: Payment Summary does not print the Signature of the Authorized Person

    Why doesn’t the signature of the authorized person not print on a Payment Summary?

    Question: Accounts Business crashes after importing the updated Superfunds list from SuperLink.

    Why does Accounts Business crash with an Unrecoverable Error when I open my company file that has just imported the updated Superfund list from the SuperLink website and has been rebuilt? 


    Call Technical Support for a new SuperFunds List import file.  Import this file into a restored backup from before when you imported the SuperFund List file.

    The Issue
    Accounts Business is not calculating the superfund list correctly when importing - you got an error message:  "Import file has 621 records from 622 lines".  When the file is rebuilt to fix this error it causes a corruption of the database.

    This issue was fixed in Accounts Business 2014.

    To import the latest SuperFund list do the following.
    (Accounts Business 2013 should skip this section and go to Solution 2 below)

    1.  Click on this link: 

    for the updated Superfund List file, extract the file and save to your desktop.

    To extract the file:
    i. Double click on your saved ZIP file. 
    ii. Your Extractor programme (WinZip; WinRAR; etc) will open a window and show the contents of the package.
    iii. Double click on: Super Fund List Update 02 Sept 2014.IIF file
    iv. The file will open on your Desktop with your default Spreadsheet (eg: Excel)
    v. Save the file to your Desktop. 
          For Excel: File >Save As >Save as type: Text (Tab delimited)(*.txt)
          In File Name, enter: Super Fund List Update 02 Sept 2014.IIF
          If asked: "...contains features that are not compatible with Text..." select YES to keep the workbook in this format.
    vi. Close the file

    2.  Open Accounts Business and Rebuild and Verify your company file (you will be forced to create a backup)

    3.  If errors are found, open the QBwin.log file (Ctrl+1>Ctrl+2>Open file) for a list of errors and fix them

    4.  Repeat steps 2 & 3 until all errors eliminated

    5.  Create a new backup - do not overwrite existing backups

    6.  File > Utilities > Import > IIF files > and double click on the updatedSuperFundList file on your desktop to import it

    7.  Wait for the message: "Your data has been imported" and then click OK

    8.  Check Employees and ensure missing super funds are appearing under Employee Centre > Employee > change tabs to Payroll and Compensation Info > super Details > Product ID

    9.  If present, do another Verify & Rebuild and check the QBwin.log file to ensure there are no errors.  

    10. If there is an error, restore your last backup (created in Step 5).

    Solution 2 - for Accounts Business 2013:

    1.    Contact Reckon Technical support;

    2.    If you were importing the SuperFunds List to access a recently added Fund, you will need to give these details to the Rep;

    3.    The Rep will send you a new Superfunds List file which will have the extension .txt;

    4.    Locate the backup made before you imported the updated Superfund list file from the SuperLink website and restore it.  Give it a different name to your current file;

    5.    In the restored file import the SuperFund List file you receive from the Support Rep – File > Utilities > Import > IIF files > change to all file types;

    6.    Rebuild and Verify the file – File > Utilities > Rebuild / Verify;

    7.    Test the opening and closing of the company file and confirm that no “Unrecoverable Error” messages are generated;

    8.    Re-input transactions that were entered since the backup was made.

    Question: Editing leave hours on a previous pay does not reflect on the Leave Accrual Reports.

    Why don’t the Leave Accrual Reports update for the changes made to past pays in Accounts Business 2014?


    The Leave Accrual Reports are a new feature in Accounts Business 2014. 

    These reports rely on ‘markers’ on the payroll transaction for accumulating and taking leave.  Previous versions do not have these markers so the details of leave taken before upgrading to 2014 cannot be shown. 

    The Leave Accrual Reports will use the hours at the time of upgrade as an “opening balance” and adjust it with subsequent pays. 

    After upgrading to 2014, any changes made to leave hours on pre-upgrade pays will not reflect on Leave Accrual Reports.



    1.    Edit the pre-upgrade pay and remove the changes made;

    eg: if Leave Hours taken changed from 7.5 hrs to 15.0 hrs, change it back to 7.5 hrs.

    2.    Adjust Leave via the Employee Record and the updated leave will appear after your next pay.

    Question: Installation of POS 2014 loops around installing .NET Framework.

    Why does the installation of POS 2014 stall around .NET Framework?  It seems to go into a never-ending loop.


    Delete the Third Party folder in the installer. 


    The Issue

    POS 2014 must have a minimum of .NET Framework 4.0 installed on the PC.  Your PC may already have a later version – like 4.5 –installed.  The POS installer will check for 4.0 and when not detected, trigger the 4.0 installer.  When 4.0 starts to install it notes the presence of a later version and stops.  The POS Installer does not register the message generated by Windows that an acceptable version of .NET Framework is installed, and continues to try to install .NET Framework 4.0.  The process keeps looping. 



    To exit the loop:  Stop the POS Installer in Task Manager.

    1.    Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and select Start Task Manager;

    2.    On the Applications tab, right-click InstallShield Point of Sale 2014 and select End Task;

    3.    Close the Task Manager


    Delete any directories and files created by the installation so far:

    ·         C:\Reckon\Retail Point of Sale Professional 2014 Administrator

    ·         C:\Reckon\Retail Point of Sale Professional 2014 Terminal


    Copy the install disk to the C drive

    1.    Create a Folder in C drive named POS Install 2014;

    2.    Copy the entire contents of the POS CD to this folder;

    3.    In C:\POS Install 2014\, delete the folder Third Party.

    Now double click on the file setup.exe in C:\POS Install 2014\


    If you installed from a downloaded link (e-store; Trial version)

    1.    Delete the Administrator and Terminal install directories, as above;

    2.    In the C:\Temp folder, delete the folder Third Party;

    3.    In the C:\Temp folder, click on setup.exe.

    If you have more than one setup.exe file, click on the one dated 10/4/2014 and is 219KB in size.

    Now click on the POS 2014 download link to start the install.

    Question: Do you want to allow the webpage to access your Clipboard message when launching the new Hosted

    Why am I prompted to allow access to the Clipboard when I launch the new Reckon Accounts Hosted?  What does it do and what should I answer?



    Click on Don’t allow.


    The Issue

    This issue will be encountered by Internet Explorer users only. 

    The new Reckon Accounts Hosted uses newer technology which means that non-Internet Explorer browsers need an independent clipboard to copy information from an application on your local PC to Hosted.  This independent clipboard appears as the first of 3 icons in the top right of your Hosted screen.

    As Hosted integrates with Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer users do not need an independent clipboard.  By default, Windows has access to an external clipboard disabled.  When a website that utilizes an external clipboard is opened, you are prompted to allow it access.

    You can answer Don’t Allow and use Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V to copy and paste between your local PC and Hosted.

    To not see this message you will need to enable access to an independent clipboard.  You will then have access to 2 ways of copying text.


    Enabling the independent clipboard in Internet Explorer

    1.Open Internet Explorer.

    2.Click on Tools.

    3.Click on Internet Options.

    4. Under Security tab, Click on Internet and then click on Custom level.

    5. Scroll down and under Scripting, you will find an option “Allow Programmatic clipboard access”.

    6. Under that click on Enable and click OK and again OK.

    7. Restart Internet Explorer and the pop up window will not come up.

    Question: Share Prices are not updating?

    My Share price used to download but it has now stopped downloading.


    Some users may have an issue downloading the share price based on the conditions below:

    Condition 1:

    You have entered an incorrect ticker symbol when setting up your security name, or the actual security may have updated the ticker symbol since you last created the security name.  

        1) When the one-step update window is open, click the select Quotes hyperlink from the right and all your security list will open, double check all the ticker symbol.

    NOTE: you can use the any third-party share market website to double check the ticker symbol or the look up button in the Edit Security Details to check if the symbol is correct.

    This is very important because Reckon Accounts Personal range uses the symbol to download the correct symbol via our servers.

    Condition 2:

    See if the Security settings are all correct, ex: type, and asset class:

     1) Click the Investing menu > Security list
     2) Right click > edit the security name to correct the type or asset class
    EX:  For AU, NZ and U.S stocks

    Type: Stock

    Exchange: Australia for AU, New Zealand for NZ and Other for U.S

    Asset class:  Australian stocks for AU, New Zealand stocks for NZ and International stocks for U.S

    If the security is one of the indices – make sure to choose Market Index as the type, and most common than not – the Asset Class is set to Unclassified.
