Further to our article posted on 04.06.2021, MYOB and Xero have now announced how they are implementing the superannuation guarantee (SG) rate rise on 1 July 2021.

If you are using Xero – good news, there is nothing that you need to do as Xero will automatically update the super rate to 10%.

if you have an MYOB file, you will need to manually update the rate from 9.5% to 10%. Before processing your first pay in July 2021, but after your final pay run in June 2021, please change the SG rate as follows:

MYOB Account Right

  1. Go to the Payroll command centre and click Payroll Categories
  2. Click the Superannuation tab
  3. Click the blue arrow to open the Superannuation Guarantee payroll category
  4. Under Calculation Basis, make sure it is set to Equal 10.00% of Gross Wages
  5. Click OK

MYOB Essentials

If you have the NEW version of Essentials:

  1. Go to the Payroll menu and choose Pay items
  2. Click the Superannuation tab
  3. Click to open the Superannuation Guarantee pay item
  4. Under Calculation Basis, make sure it is set to 10.00%
  5. Click Save

If the above steps do not work, you will need to update for each employee as follows:

  1. Go to the Payroll menu and choose Employees
  2. Click an employee’s name
  3. Click the Superannuation tab
  4. Under Super guarantee, make sure the Employer contribution is set to 10%
  5. Click Save
  6. Repeat for each employee

If you have any questions regarding the above, or need assistance changing the SG rate, please contact our office.

I'm really enjoying the personalised touch and service I'm receiving from Ian and Siarn. Always prompt, professional and happy to answer my silly questions and help me stay informed. I've been a client of Bill's and HQB for about 20 years. Since Bills retirement he passed me on to Ian and the quality of the service just seems to keep getting better. HQB comes highly recommended by me.

HQB accountants have been an asset to our business. They have made Job Keeper a breeze and kept our business strong. They respond to emails quickly. They have been terrific value for us as they have brought knowledge and expertise that I don't have even if I had the time to do my accounting. They have taken the time to understand my business and structure our finances accordingly.

Amazing service from James (& Brianna), going well above his responsibilities to his clients. Cannot recommend James highly enough. HQB a highly professional and responsive accounting firm. Incredibly quick at responding, yes, often after hours, which is more than we would ever expect from any professional. I am continually recommending James to friends and family. Many thanks James. Kind regards, Lyn (& Jeff) Green

James became our Accountant last year and he has handled all our entities swiftly and pro actively. We are incredibly impressed with him and HQB and feel very comfortable in their hands to manage our Business. James is always prompt in replying and sometimes out of hours and his handling of our recent predicament with COVID 19 has helped us manage our Business successfully through this trying time. Thank you James and the team at HQB. We will always recommend you highly,.
