Super Payment Date on Payslip in MYOB®

Easy Method

This method is easiest to setup and maintain.

Step 1
Start MYOB® v19 and open your company file. (Will also work on other versions although process may be slightly different).

Step 2
Go to Setup, Customise Forms, Payslips, choose the payslip you want to customise and press Customise button. We will customise the payslip we customised on the 'Payslip Changes' page.

Step 3
Find or create a suitable spot to add a long Text field. In this example we will do this at the bottom of the payslip. Click the Text field icon on the toolbar, 2nd from left.

MYOB Toolbar

Then click the left mouse button in an empty space on the payslip near where you want to place the text field, and use the arrow buttons on the keyboard to move the field to the desired location. Note that you may need to turn off the 'Snap to Grid' option. To do this click the 2nd last button on the toolbar (properties) and un-tick the 'Snap to Grid' check-box on the Options tab and press OK to close.

Step 4
Some employers pay the super guarantee amounts monthly, some quarterly. We will set up quarterly payments, with our normal payment date being 21 days after the end of each quarter. (If you pay monthly or any other frequency, change this step to suit).

Double click in the new text field, and on the Layout tab, type 'Superannuation contribution is expected to be paid on 21 Oct 2013'. While on the Layout tab, change the width in the Field Size section to 10cm.

Click the Text Format button and under the Justify section, choose Center. Click OK and OK to close the Text Field properties screen. The image below shows how our textfield looks at the bottom of the payslip under the wage details table:

Step 5
Click the 'Save Form' button and then Cancel, Cancel to get back to the Command Centre.

You are now set for the 1st quarter of the 2014 financial year. After the 1st quarter, you will need to change the date in the new text field to
21 Jan 2014 (as per Steps 1 to 4). See below an example of the final payslip.
