Salary sacrifice creates negative Net Pay and I get an error
I own a micro business (and my wife and I are it's only employees). We use the Reckon Payroll App to report STP when we pay ourselves from the business. This year, we've hardly paid ourselves at all, but I have paid super into our super accounts up to the concessional cap.
I want to report this super payment through STP - via the Reckon Payroll app, so I created a new pay run, and chose "Salary sacrifice for super". (seemed appropriate) and entered the amount ($22000).
The details show the following: Earnings and leave: $0.00. Allowances: $0.00. Deductions: $22,000. Tax: $0.00. Net Pay: $-22,000.00. Superannuation $22,000.00.
But when I try to click "Mark as paid" I get the message "Unable to submit pay run These employees have overall negative pay...".
Do I need to add $22,000 as a Bonus, or Ordinary as well, to stop it from being an overall negative pay?
I'd be so thankful if anyone can let me know what needs to be done here.
