Payroller integrates super guarantee payments with your regular pay runs. Super contributions are generated from pay runs you create, and the payment date determines the corresponding super batch. You can customise these batches by:

  • Payment period (quarterly, monthly, etc.)
  • Ignoring dates when super was previously submitted
  • Payment method (BPAY or direct debit)
  • Review included employees
  • Ignoring individual batches

Upon successful submission, you’ll receive a confirmation message or a separate code for making the external bank transfer with BPAY. Direct debit super payments typically take 1-2 business days for processing, while BPAY payments take 3 business days for Beam. Rejected payments or overpaid contributions are returned to your account within 10 business days.See the full guide to submitting super payments on Payroller here.
