Setting up Super Salary Sacrifice in Accounts Plus 2020


Completely new to this accounting software. Have managed to find some online help, but can only get this far.

Have selected Payroll item type - Company Contribution, then the next page will not give any drop down options, box is greyed out so I can't select Salary Sacrifice (SS).

How can I get past this to set it up correctly?

    Hi Cath

    A Company Contribution is an additional liability the Employer has to pay for. Salary Sacrifice isn't a Company Contribution as it's a portion of the Employee's own gross wage that they are choosing to 'sacrifice' in return for a reduction in their PAYG tax liability.

    Therefore, you need to select the last Payroll Item Type Super Contribution (Company & Employee Contribution). You will then be able to select Salary Sacrifice (SS) from the Super Contribution dropdown list 😊
