  • Things to do before your first upload

 

 

MYOB's super portal accepts contribution files created in MYOB AccountRight, MYOB AccountEdge and MYOB Essentials.

However, before you upload your first contribution file to the portal, there are some things you should do and be aware of.

Using AccountRight or AccountEdge? Ensure you're using a compatible software version.

Things to check in your MYOB software

Check that you've recorded...Things to know
your business ABNIn AccountRight or AccountEdge, you can enter your ABN by going to the Setup menu and choosing Company Information.
each super fund's USI and Fund Employer Number (if the fund has given you a number).

To check your list of funds in AccountRight or AccountEdge, go to the Lists menu and choose Superannuation Funds.

If you were previously using M-Powered Superannuation, you need to deselect the Pay using MYOB M-Powered Superannuation option in each fund's Information window.


each employee's Tax File Number

 
each employee's date of birth 

each employee's fund details.

Ensure that each employee has been linked to a super fund and has a member number.

each employee's complete address.

Note that:

  • the Country field must be Australia or the code AU. If the field is blank, the portal will also assume the employee lives in Australia.
  • the State field must be either ACT, NSW, QLD, TAS, NT, SA, VIC, WA or AAT
  • address fields can't contain commas.
each employee's name in the format required by the super portal.

Note that:

  • multi-word names must be separated by a single space
  • don't enter a space after "Mc" or "Mac"
  • don't enter a space before or after a hyphen.

each employee's phone number in the format required by the super portal.

If you have recorded a phone number, it must:

  • be no more than 10 digits in length
  • include the area code for landline numbers
  • be a mobile number if entered in the Phone#2 field.

A couple more things to know

  • Do any of your employees contribute super for their spouses? MYOB's super portal doesn't support this type of payment. If you upload a contribution file that has spouse super contributions, you'll need to reassign the amount to another category, such as 'Voluntary' contributions.
  • Do you have employees with different pay frequencies, or who started or left during the period? When creating a super contribution file, you should only include contributions for employees who were paid for the exact same payroll period.
    If all your employees were paid on the same dates, and nobody started or left the business during the period you’re reporting for, you can include all contributions in one super contribution file. Otherwise, you’ll need to create multiple files.
    For example, assume you’re making super payments for July. All your employees were paid fortnightly (14/7, 28/7), except for two who were paid monthly (15/7). You should save a separate contribution file for the two monthly employees. This will ensure that the correct payroll period is reported to all employee funds. The payroll period for the fortnightly employees would be reported as 1 July – 28 July, while for the monthly employees it would be 16 June – 15 July.
    Similarly, if an employee started or left, you'll need to create a specific contribution file for that employee alone.
