AccountRight Plus and Premier, Australia only
AccountRight comes with a default pay slip form which you can customise to change its look and feel and modify what's displayed.
You can also create different versions of the pay slip form and save them with different names. This is handy if you have different pay slip requirements for different employees.
If you're not sure what needs to appear on a pay slip, check the FairWork website .
To customise pay slips
- Go to the Setup menu and choose Customise Forms. The Customise Forms window appears.
- Click the Pay Slips tab.
- Select the pay slip form then click Customise. The form opens, ready to be customised.
Customise the form to suit your needs. Here are some helpful topics:
To preview your form, click the Print Preview tab.
- When you've finished customising your form, go to the File menu and click Save As. The Save Form As window appears:
- Enter a name and a description for the form.
- Click Save then click OK to the confirmation message.
To close the form, go to the File menu and choose Exit. If prompted to save again, click No. The Form window reappears. Your customised pay slip form will be listed.
Using a customised pay slip
You can choose which pay slip form you want to use when printing or emailing your pay slips ( Payroll > Print/Email Pay Slips > Advanced Filters > Selected Form for Pay Slips ).

To add employee addresses to pay slips
To add the employee's address to their pay slip you'll need to add the Payee field to the pay slip form. You should also make sure the address details are up to date in your employee cards.
- Open the pay slip form (go to the Setup menu > Customise Forms > Pay Slips tab > select the pay slip form > Customise).
- On the Customise tab, click Fields.
- Select the Payee field and click OK.
- Position and size the Payee field to suit your needs.
Because the Payee field includes the employee's name, you might want to remove the Name field and replace it with the Payee field. Here's our example:
To include year-to-date balances on pay slips
You can include the year-to-date amounts paid and entitlement balances (which includes any carry-over balances) on your employee pay slips. Go to Setup > Preferences > Reports & Forms tab and select the option to Include all YTD amounts and Entitlement Balances on Paycheques Stubs.
To include super and entitlements on pay slips
Superannuation categories and entitlement categories include an option to Print on Pay Advice. To access a payroll category, go to Payroll > Payroll Categories > Superannuation (or Entitlements ) tab > click the zoom arrow to open the category.
Super not showing on a pay slip?
If the amount earned by an employee for the month is currently less than $450, no superannuation will be calculated. This is because in the Superannuation Information window for the Superannuation Guarantee contribution category, the wage threshold before superannuation is calculated is set to $450. When the employee receives their next pay and their gross earning are above $450, superannuation will be calculated on the total gross amount of wages/salary earned for the month. The superannuation amount will "catch up" because total gross wages/salary for the month are now greater than $450.
