This topic explains how to add new employees to Pay Super payments. It assumes you've already signed up and make Pay Super payments.

When a new employee starts, you set up an employee card to enter their payroll and superannuation details. This includes adding superannuation payroll categories, selecting a super fund and entering a super fund membership number. When you record a pay, any superannuation contributions are automatically tracked and ready to be included in your next Pay Super payment.

If your employee nominates a super fund you haven't used before, you'll need to set up the fund for Pay Super payments.

Before paying your new employee, it's a good idea to check they're ready to go.

Checklist
TitleCheck that your new employee is ready for Pay Super
  • If the employee uses a super fund that's new to your business, set up the super fund (see below).
  • Add an employee card and include the employee's payroll details and superannuation information.
  • Check that you've entered all the mandatory information required for Pay Super (see below).

    Can't find the fund? It might be listed more than once or under a slightly different name than. Try entering and searching for the fund's SPIN/USI. You can also check our list of super funds to make sure the fund can be paid using Pay Super. Still can't find the fund? Contact MYOB Support on 1300 555 931.

  4. If the super fund has provided you with an employer membership number, enter it in the Employer Membership No field. This is the unique identification number provided by the fund after registering employees with them. Check our list of super funds to see which ones require an Employer Membership Number.

  5. Repeat these steps for each super fund that you'll pay using Pay Super.

Are your superannuation categories set up correctly? Check that the super payroll categories you've linked to your employees are of the Superannuation category type, not Employer Expense. Only super amounts allocated to payroll categories listed in the Superannuation view of the Payroll Category List (Payroll command centre) can be processed using Pay Super.
