QuickBooks (Reckon) has calculated super twice for one employee at 9.25% on line one and 9% on the second line of 'other payroll items' section for December 2013.

The super (inc. overpayment) has been paid and presented on our bank account.  What do I do?  Step by step would be great - I'm a bit new to this.

Hi Stacey

Welcome to Reckon Online Community and thank you for your question.

When data file has been upgraded in Reckon Accounts 2013 Super Guarantee Act (SA) been increased to 9.25% as requirement. Other payroll items (example Employer Additional) if setup as 9% and ticked as “include payments in contribution” in setup of payroll item wizard this will add additional super.

Please consult with your Accountant for how to handle this situation. One suggestion is do not pay employee till it reaches the super threshold and process super normal after it.

Hope this will help you.
