AccountRight Plus, Premier and Enterprise, Australia only

If you work in the building and construction industry, your industry award generally states that superannuation is payable as a flat amount or 9.5% of gross wages (known as the Superannuation Guarantee). For employee eligibility details, visit the ATO website.

When setting up AccountRight for Superannuation Guarantee, there's no "one size fits all" solution. A variety of factors will determine how to enter superannuation details in your payroll:

  • Individual worker status (employee or contractor)
  • Percentage of business activity related to building and construction services
  • Eligibility of workers for both the Superannuation Guarantee and any super contributed awards you may already offer
