Good day, naveen.nanda.
You'll want to add the contractor as a supplier in QuickBooks.
Here are the steps:
Then, create an expense to record the payment for super. Note: You still have to pay the superannuation outside of QuickBooks Online.
Once done, you can deposit the payment directly to the Superannuation account.
I'll be around if you have any additional questions related to this concern. Thanks.
I face this same issue, however my contractors super company "Australian Super" says they can no longer accept direct payments and they need to be paid via payroll system, I have Beam setup for employees however there is no option to add in contractor commitments. Is there another way to add contractor super?
I see. Thanks for clarifying that. Since we are not paying him on our payroll, super cannot be calculated through Beam. Beam only calculates super based on what payruns have been run and paid through our Payroll in QuickBooks. Because the contractor is using invoices, by submitting his information on Payroll in QuickBooks; PAYG would be incorrect, and you'd be doubling his wages in a reporting sense.
My best recommendation would be to look into third party Super Clearing Houses in order to pay the contractors super, as our system simply isn't built to handle contractor super. It's possible the super funds of the contractor has some viable options for you to deposit the funds outside of a direct transfer since they now restrict that option.
Please respond with any questions or clarifications if you have them.
