I do not wish to calculate Statutory Super on Salary sacrifice. How do I exclude it from my super calculation using Reckon Payroll Premier?
When calculating Super Guarantee (SA) for your employee, depending on your company policy and agreement, you may opt to exclude the Salary Sacrifice amount from the calculation of Statutory super and not pay super on it. By default, Payroll premier is configured to calculate super on gross pay i.e including Salary Sacrifice amount.
Who does this apply to?
Reckon Payroll premier user, if you have employees doing salary sacrifice and if you do not wish to calculate Statutory super on salary sacrifice.
Solution / Workaround:
For example: If your Gross payment is $1,000 and Salary Sacrifice is $100. By default, Payroll Premier will calculate super at 9.5% of $1,000, which is $95.
As super salary sacrifice amounts reduce taxable income, employers need only pay super on the after salary sacrifice amount, so the Super Guarantee payment need be on $900.00. Therefore, the payable super guarantee amount is $900 @ 9.5% rate is $85.50.
You can choose not to include the SS for the calculation of Super guarantee.
