An employee cashed out leave and super didn't calculate correctly so I manually adjusted it.  Now the amount is showing as RESC on the payment summary.  How can I remove the RESC from the payment summary.

Welcome to the Reckon Community Helen.

Firstly, when payroll items are properly configured, the programme is designed to accurately calculate the amount of Super for the payroll elements you specified.  If the amount of Super calculated is not in line with your estimations, then you should look at:
  1. All the superable payroll items you used are ticked for inclusion in the Super payroll item - (Lists > Payroll Item List > edit your super payroll item > Include payments in contribution screen.)
  2. The Payroll Item is made superable in Lists > Payroll Item List > edit your payroll item > Inclusions > tick Super in the payroll Item column.

Secondly, were the correct super payroll items used?

Next, is the amount showing in RESC the full amount of super calculated on this pay or just a portion (usually the amount above the Super Guarantee rate)?

This behaviour is controlled by the option Calculate RESC difference for SA and/or CA payroll items in Edit > Preferences > Payroll & Employees > Company Preferences. 

We recommend this option be ticked to ensure the business does not contravene reporting requirements surrounding the compulsory super guarantee amount.  



Hope this helps.


regards,
John

Thanks John.  I've managed to adjust the pay that was causing the issue and the super is now showing correctly.
