Assign the superfund to your employee - Join Date ?
New employees now complete their employee commencement forms online through ATO online services (via myGov) which autocompletes all the details that used to be manually collected on paper forms, which prevents data entry errors etc ie
- Tax file number declaration
- Superannuation standard choice
- Withholding declaration
- Medicare levy variation declaration
After they use ATO's online 'New Employment' service they then give us, the employer, the ATO summary printout to set up their pay (Employers don't have to lodge anything with ATO anymore in respect to these forms)
Firstly, the ATO summary gives us an "Event ID" number which it says allows your payroll software to automatically retrieve all the employee details required , tax, superannuation info etc, but seems Reckon payroll cant use this "Event ID" feature ?
Secondly, the ATO summary gives us almost everything we need to manually set up the employee in Reckon except a "Join Date" in their super details.
We are using Payroll web and it says a "Join date" is required.
We have tried a fake date, but it does not work? Error is "Couldn't get the superannuation fund".
We contacted our new employee - he has no idea what his join date was.
Is there a way around this ? Surely everyone else is having this problem now?
Also - does anyone know why 'Join date' is needed if ATO don't even provide it to employers as part of the New Employee superannuation details ? The ATO just provide Fund name, Fund ABN, Fund USI and Fund Employee Account Number
