How do I set up super payments as self employed/sole tradier?



I am self employed (sole trader/Australia based) and have been making regular personal contribution to my Super account by transferring money from my gross earnings from the business to my super account.


I'm using 'Quickbooks online' (not the self-employed plan).


I'm wondering how I set this up in 'chart of accounts' to categorize it correctly and then also so I can record these payments I make to super from my business when they show up as transactions in banking.


But set up and recorded correctly for tax time etc so I can claim tax deductions on these super contributions as I think this is allowed?
