Auto Superannuation Batch Not Approved Reminder
Would be great if Xero could trigger an automated (email and/or text) reminder to the superannuation payment approver 10, 5 and one days out from the superannuation due date each quarter.
A similar reminder feature already exists in XPM for Activity Statement Lodgements - reminders can be turned on.
Xero also has the ability to automate reminders to Customers around bill payment.
Xero has the email and SMS of the superannaution approver already on file.
Advantage of these reminders:
Super gets paid on time - we're all human and life can take over and sometimes things get missed - a reminder is an additional prompt.
Continues to reinforce to the client the importance of the payment, and that the approval should be made well before the due date
Reduces the risk of late super payments, which have a negative impact on clients - lack of deductibility, additional penalties, and additional SG liabilities - this also has a cost impost in the preparation of SG statements by advisors, and can create friction between the client and the advisor around "why these need to be done"

What a great idea, we all know things get missed and an auto-reminder for something so important is really needed.

Would save so much time checking and re checking. We are all busy and I can understand clients may miss the sms sometimes but this idea helps keep things moving.

If this feature was available, it would save me having to log back into each client’s file before due date to make sure they’ve approved their auto super.

Great idea for the reasons already stated.
