Install & Run the Wage Easy RESC Queries

If you have any employees with RESC (Reportable Employer Superannuation Contributions- salary sacrifice), you will need to download and install the Fix Super RESC Flag 2017 file.

To identify those Employees who may have Salary Sacrificed to Super, or had Additional Employer Contributions that are reportable as RESC we suggest you run the User Defined Report (Reports | User defined | Super by Department with Gross Report). 

After these employees have been identified, go into their employee files and check that “Include on ATO Payment Summary as RESC” has been ticked for those Superannuation Contribution Types (as illustrated below).


Any payments made prior to ticking the box may not appear on the Individual ATO Payment Summaries, EMPDUPE file or the ATO Payment Summary Report (summary report shown on next page). To make sure previously processed payments appears on the ATO Payment Summary, you may need to run a User Defined query called Fix Super RESC flag 2017.

Check if RESC will be shown on Individual ATO Payment Summaries and the EMPDUPE by running the ATO Payment Summary Report (Reports | ATO Payment Summaries | ATO Payment Summary Report) and confirm the totals under RESC are correct.
