Salary Sacrifice using the Basic Payroll app

Hi Rav.

You helped me out using the payroll app for Reckon which is great.

We use the basic free one. Where do l go to report salary sacrifice for super on here?

The client l use this app for now wants to begin sacrificing and l am not sure how to report it.

    Hi Jules,

    When you create a pay run there is a specific field for salary sacrifice, separate to that of the SG amount.

    Tap on the salary sacrifice field then enter the amount the employee wishes to sacrifice.

    Thanks Rav, l will try it out.

    Does this adjust the tax automatically?

    Hi @JulesBousattout , Yes the Payroll app will automatically adjust the tax. So you have to make sure the Total earnings includes the Salary sacrifice amount in addition to the normal earnings.
