AccountRight Plus and Premier, Australia only
Set up payroll
Setting up your payroll includes reviewing and setting up payroll categories. They're used to calculate normal hours, overtime, PAYG, super, and so on.
Maybe you'd like to personalise your employees' pay slips to change what's displayed or to add your business logo.
Set up Pay Superannuation to make super payments directly from AccountRight, meet your employee super obligations in a flash and always stay on top of government changes, including SuperStream. The best bit? It's included with your AccountRight subscription.
Set up employees
You need to add employee details for every employee you’ll pay using AccountRight.
It's in the employee card where you enter details like their address, email and other contact details.
You can also enter their employee payroll information, such as whether they are full or part time, the name of their superannuation fund and their tax details, or their pay history (if you started processing payroll part-way through the year).
Pay your team
Time to start a pay run to enter your employees’ hours worked, annual leave taken and any other details, such as bonuses or commission.
Have an employee that's leaving? You need to process a termination payment that will calculate the right amount owed to them.
Pay super and PAYG
Every month or quarter, you need to pay the PAYG income tax instalments you've withheld to the ATO. The amount you owe is automatically calculated for you when recording your employee pays.
Every quarter, you'll also need to pay superannuation payments to your employees’ funds. Our superannuation features make this a breeze.
Are you required to pay payroll tax? You can run a report to display the payroll tax due.
