Super Payment Date on Payslip in MYOB®

Memo Method

This method is uses the Memo field on each employees payscreen. It involves typing (or pasting) into the Memo field the words you want to appear on the payslip, for example "Superannuation contribution is expected to be paid 21 Oct 2013". This approach requires this step each time an employee's pay is processed. It will therefore more time consuming than the other approaches which only require one step once every quarter.
