Introduction

Superannuation comprises the legislative arrangements put in place by the Federal Government to enable employees to accumulate funds to provide them with income in retirement.

It is compulsory for employers to make superannuation contributions for their employees on top of the employees' wages and salaries. These contributions are generally known as Superannuation Guarantee Contributions. The current Superannuation Guarantee rate is 9.5%. 

Superannuation contributions beyond the Superannuation Guarantee include:

  • Superannuation Contributions from after tax income

  • Salary Sacrifice Contributions from before tax income

  • Employer Contributions above the Superannuation Guarantee

Tables

Allowances/Deductions

Superannuation Contribution arrangements for a specific BusinessCraft dataset are defined in Payroll > Setup > Superannuation Control with employee specific exceptions recorded for each employee in Payroll > Maintain > Employees.

For Superannuation Contributions beyond this (for example, Superannuation Salary Sacrifice or Employee Extra Superannuation Contributions), the Allowances/Deductions table is used. Go to Payroll > Tables > Allowances/Deductions:

All/Ded Code A 2-character code for the Allowance/Deduction Code.
Type Indicates whether the Allowance/Deduction code is for an Allowance (A), Deduction (D) or for Extra Tax (X).
Description A 12-character description for the Allowance/Deduction Code.
Calculation Type

The Calculation Type is used in conjunction with the Amount Type and Amount to determine the value of the Allowance/Deduction code. Options are:

Hourly (H) – The Amount Type is applied to every hour worked provided the Pay on Hourly Types field for the Hourly Type for those hours worked is set to Y. Please note a Start and End Time range is made available for this option.

Count (C) - The Amount Type is applied once for each day on which hours are worked provided the Pay on Hourly Types field for the Hourly Type for those hours worked is set to Y. Please note a Qualify Hours trigger is made available for this option.

Day (D) - The Amount Type is applied to every hour worked provided the Pay on Hourly Types field for the Hourly Type for those hours worked is set to Y. Please note a Qualify Hours trigger is made available for this option.

Weekly (W) - The Amount Type is applied once for each week in which hours are worked. The Amount Type should be expressed as a weekly amount, even if pays are paid fortnightly or monthly.

Variable (V) - The number of units to be paid must be provided during Timesheet Entry. The Amount Type should be expressed as a per unit amount.

100% Superannuation (S) - The entire pay for the employee will be Deducted as Super. Please ensure that other Allowances and Deductions for the employee do not adversely affect the intended use of this option.

Amount Type

The Amount Type works in conjunction with the Calculation Type and the Amount to determine the value for the Allowance/Deduction. Options are:

Dollar (D) – the value in the Amount field is a dollar amount.

Percentage (P) the value in the Amount field is a percentage.

Hours (H) – the value in the Amount field is hours that will be applied at the Employee’s Hourly Rate.

Rate (R) – the value in the Amount field is a rate generally for use with a Variable Calculation Type.

Amount

The default Amount to be used in conjunction with the Amount Type and Calculation Type.

If the Allowance/Deduction Code will be stored on the Employee Master, this field can be left blank and the Amount recorded for each Employee on their Employee Master record.

Before Tax

If the Allowance/Deduction Type is Allowance (A), indicates if the Allowance is a Before Tax (Y) or an After Tax (N) Allowance.

If the Allowance/Deduction Type is Deduction (D), indicates if the Deduction is a Before Tax (Y) or an After Tax (N) Deduction.

The Before Tax field is not available for Extra Tax Allowance/Deduction Types.

Payment Summ Location Used to indicate whether this Allowance/Deduction code is reported separately on Payment Summaries. Will be retired with the introduction of Single Touch Payroll.
YTD on Payslip Indicates whether Year to Date Totals for this Allowance/Deduction Code can be shown on Payslips (Y) or not (N).
RDO Accrual Indicates whether this Allowance/Deduction Code is used for Rostered Day of Accruals
Additional Super Cont Indicates whether this Allowance/Deduction Code is for additional Superannuation Contributions.

Minimum Amount If the Allowance/Deduction Code calculation results in a value lower than the Minimum Amount, then the value for the Allowance/Deduction C ode is set to the Minimum Amount. If left blank, no minimum amount applies.
Maximum Amount If the Allowance/Deduction Code calculation results in a value higher than the Maximum Amount, then the value for the Allowance/Deduction C ode is set to the Maximum Amount. If left blank, no maximum amount applies.
Inflate Min/Max Indicates whether Minimum and Maximum Amounts are increased by the number of Advanced Pay Periods (Y) or not (N).

Superannuation Companies

Superannuation Companies are used to define the details for the Superannuation Companies to which Superannuation Contributions are made. Go to Payroll > Tables > Superannuation Companies:

Company Code A 3-character code to identify the Superannuation Company.
Description A 40-character code for the Superannuation Company name.
Phone Number The Superannuation Company’s phone number.
Policy Number The Policy Number assigned by the Superannuation Company for Superannuation Contributions.
Minimum Contribution The Minimum Contribution per week permitted if specified by the Superannuation Company.
Liability Account Enter/select the General Ledger account to be used to record superannuation liabilities for this Superannuation Company.
Electronic Service Address The Superannuation Company’s Electronic Service Address.
USI The Superannuation Company’s Unique Superannuation Identifier.
ABN The Superannuation Company’s Australian Business Number.
Employer ID A 20-character field used to record the Employer ID to be submitted with Superannuation Contribution information if required by the Superannuation Company.
SMSF Indicates if the Superannuation Company is a Self-Managed Superannuation Fund (Y) or not (N).
Active Indicates if the Superannuation Company is active for this dataset (Y) or not (N).

Use the Payment (F6) function key to open the Superannuation Payment Details screen. During the early stages of the SuperStream rollout, it was a requirement to provide for the range of payment methods required by Superannuation Companies.

This has largely been replaced by submitting all Superannuation Contributions in either the QuickSuper or SAFF file format direct to a Superannuation Clearing House and making one payment to that Clearing House either by Direct Debit or Direct Credit.

For this reason, the Superannuation Payment Details screen is of decreasing importance and may be decommissioned in a future version of BusinessCraft as submitting using QuickSuper or SAFF does not require this information.

In summary, the screen defines how payments will be made for this Superannuation Company. Separate payment details can be defined for each superannuation contribution type (Main, Salary Sacrifice, Employer Extra and Member Contributions).

Main is used for all regular employer superannuation payments and all other superannuation types for this super company unless the Superannuation company has different Payment Methods for different Superannuation Types. For each Superannuation Type, there are three payment options: BPAY, Direct Credit, and Direct Debit.

Cashbook Module Payments and Distributions are created when the Superannuation Contributions are posted regardless of whether the Superannuation Payment details screen is used.

Superannuation Rules

Superannuation Rules where additional conditions for Superannuation Contribution calculation beyond that provided on the Payroll > Setup > Superannuation Control screen are required. Superannuation Rules are assigned to Employees.

Go to Payroll > Tables > Superannuation Rules:

Rule Code A 6-character code used to identify the Superannuation Rule.
Description A 30-character description for the Superannuation Rule.
Period Maximum Hours The maximum number of hours on which superannuation can be paid in one pay period.
Min Award Entitlement The minimum hours on which superannuation will be calculated. If insufficient hours have been worked to reach the Minimum Award Entitlement, then additional hours will be sought from the Pay On field for Wage Types where the Pay On field is set to M or EE.
Min Wage per Month If the Employee earns less than the Min Wage per Month in a month, that employee will not be entitled to collect Superannuation for that month.

This will not prevent Super Contributions from being printed on the employee’s payslip for each pay period. It is recommended
that a clause is included on payslips indicating that Superannuation Contributions shown are subject to Minimum Monthly Earnings.
Pay On

Indicates whether Superannuation Contributions will be calculated for the hours worked for the specified Hourly Wage Types (Y), as Employer Extra Superannuation (E) or not used in Superannuation calculations (N).

Two additional options are available if the Min Award Entitlement field is not zero and the Minimum Award Entitlement hours are not reached to include those hours in the superannuation contributions as standard contributions (M) or Employer Extra Contributions (EE).

Ord Where the Min Award Entitlement is not zero, this field is used to indicate the Order in which Hourly Wage Types are included/excluded from Superannuation calculations.
Rate Where the Min Award Entitlement is not zero, this field is used to indicate whether Superannuation is calculated using a Flat Rate (F) or not (N).
Up to Wage The Maximum Wage Amount to which the corresponding Superannuation Percentage or Dollar amount applies.
Super % The Superannuation Percentage applicable for the corresponding Up to Wage amount.
Dollar The Superannuation Amount applicable for the corresponding Up to Wage amount.

Superannuation Schedule

Superannuation Contributions need to be made at least four times a year, and this must be within 28 days of the end of each quarter. If payments are not made before the final cut-off dates, the Superannuation Guarantee Charge (SGC) becomes payable.

The Superannuation Schedule is used to record the planned Superannuation Payment schedule for the dataset so that the planned payment date can be shown on Employee Payslips.

Go to Payroll > Tables > Superannuation Schedule and a Range Criteria screen provides the option to limit the range of the Superannuation Schedule displayed:

After entering any Range Criteria, the Superannuation Payment Schedule screen is displayed:

Year The Calendar Year for the Superannuation Contributions to be paid.
Seq A sequence number for the Superannuation Contributions to be paid.
Start The Start Date for the Superannuation Contributions to be paid.
End The End Date for the Superannuation Contributions to be paid.

Report Options

Prior to the introduction of SuperStream, the Superannuation Report was an essential part of Superannuation processing and for this reason, there are parameters available for that report. The report is still a valuable source of information and carries out updates to other fields and will not be decommissioned by BusinessCraft.

Report Frequency The frequency of the Superannuation Report in months.
Report Last Ran The date the Superannuation Report was last run in non-trial mode. The date is stored in this field automatically.
