Making a super payment


This guide will explain how to make a super payment with SuperChoice.




Preparation before payment


Employee super details must be complete before making payment.

If any new employees have been hired since last payment, they will need to be added before super can be processed.

If any of the new employees are a member of a new super fund, these funds will need to be added to both SuperChoice and Microkeeper.

Review the previous guides under SuperChoice.

If a new super fund needs to be added, it's recommended to contact that fund as a Fund employer number might be required.


NOTE: If an employee is yet to supply a fund and member number you can make a manual super payment at a later date.


If the employee isn't a member of a fund you can create an account for them with your default fund.

The image above is an example of a file with 2 employees.


The employee Joel Smith will get paid $ 1052.33 for his Super Guarantee Contribution and $ 400 as a Salary Sacrifice, as a member of REST with the member number 111222


Alice Tomson has been newly hired and her member number is TBA


This file with missing data for example TBA will produce errors in SuperChoice.


In this scenario we can remove Alice from the list and make a manual payment for her at a later date, make sure to delete the entire row.
