Hello All,
I have a bit of a problem with the super payments posting to the wrong cost centre for one of my employees.

I was looking at my P & L for the month and noticed that the weekly super contribution was allocating itself to "employment expenses other" rather than "superannuation".

However, when I run my monthly reports for super payments the correct amount due is appearing for this employee and her payslips are correct.

When I had a look in the chart of accounts the corresponding fund was set up as per all the others, these are all reporting fine when I run the monthly P & L so I am a little stumped????

Can anyone offer and suggestions please?

Many Thanks 

SL ;)

Hi SL,

Thank you for contacting Reckon Community,

Regard to your issue, super is assigning to other expenses in P/L report because that employee Super item has not assign with specific Expense account.

Go to List-->Payroll Item List  then look for the Super item which you assign with that employee

double click on that super item and click next till "Agency for company-paid liability" window appears, where you can see Expense account: Payroll Expense which is common Expense account but you can choose specific super Account under payroll Expense, or create one under payroll Expense if you dont have one by clicking on <Add new>. then assign it to this Super and click next until the "Finish" button embossed then click on Finish

Now check the P/L report to see difference.

see the image below to guide you.

hope you will be fine with this solution, let me know if should you have any question regarding this matter

Thank you
