Super for the older workers
Payroll officers should be warned that super is payable on ALL workers regardless of age (from 2013 legislation). On Payroll Premier, the question of whether or not you wish to pay this person keeps popping up when a worker over the age of 70 is having super added to their details. YES, we do have to pay super and now that STP is running and active the ATO will soon see if any workers have not had super applied to their chosen fund. This will trigger the Superannuation Guarantee Charge, and penalties will apply.
