3. What is the current Superannuation Guarantee (SG) rate?
Currently, the SG contribution rate is 9.5% of an eligible employee’s ordinary time earnings (OTE) and must be paid into a complying fund. If your employees work under a specific industrial award or agreement, you’re also obliged to contribute in accordance with that award or agreement.For example, you may be required to make additional contributions or to pay those contributions to a specific fund. The SG rate will increase each year until it reaches 12%. However, the Government now proposes that it remain at 9.5% until 30 June 2021 and then increase by 0.5% each year until it reaches 12% on 1 July 2025. The current SG rates are set out below:
|Financial year||Current SG Rate|
|From 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2021||9.5%|
|1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022||10%|
|1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023||10.5%|
|1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024||11%|
|1 July 2024 to 30 June 2025||11.5%|
|1 July 2025||12%|
4. What are the Super Contribution / Super Guarantee (SG) payment deadlines?
The Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992 (the Act) requires employers to make SG contributions on (at least) a quarterly basis or you may incur an SG charge.
The SG Act requires contributions to be made by the 28th business day following the end of each calendar quarter (that is, by 28 July, 28 October, 28 January and 28 April).
|1 July – 30 September||28 October|
|1 October – 31 December||28 January|
|1 January – 31 March||28 April|
|1 April – 30 June||28 July|
When a cut-off date for payment falls on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, you can make the payment on the next business day.
If you don’t meet these deadlines you may have to pay the required amount, plus interest and an administrative penalty imposed by the Australian Tax Office (ATO) the following month. Other penalties may also apply. We encourage our employers to make payments monthly so they never have to worry about missing the SG deadline.
5. Who do I have to contribute for?
If you are an employer, you have to pay super if your employee(s) earn at least $450 gross per calendar month. The main exceptions are employees who are:
- Under 18 years of age and working less than 30 hours per week.
- Performing work of a private or domestic nature for not more than 30 hours a week for a non-business employer.
Please note: You may still be required by a Federal or State award, Industrial Agreement or Employee Contract to pay super for the above employees. It’s important to investigate your particular circumstances in relation to your employees.
6. What is SuperStream?
SuperStream is a package of Australian Government reforms designed to make our superannuation system easier to use. It’s part of the Government’s broader Stronger Super reforms.
As an employer, SuperStream will help simplify the way you make contributions for your employees and streamline data processing. New Superannuation Data and Payment Standards, jointly created by the Australian Government and Australian Tax Office (ATO), will help achieve this. New standards will apply from 1 July 2014, so employers with 20 or more employees will be required to make super contributions electronically. For employers with less than 20 employees, the new standards will apply from 1 July 2015.
7. I have an employee who is making extra contributions through salary sacrifice and/or after-tax contributions, how do I record this?
Before-tax (salary sacrifice) contributions are treated for tax purposes as employer contributions, so it’s important to identify them on your contribution advice. After-tax (voluntary) contributions must also be identified on your contribution advice so your employees aren’t taxed again on these contributions. For details on how before and after-tax contributions are defined, visit https://www.moneysmart.gov.au/superannuation-and-retirement.
8. What about tax file numbers (TFNs)— what are my obligations as an employer?
When an employee provides you with their TFN for employment purposes, you’re required by law to provide it to their super fund. If a TFN is not supplied when paying Super for your employee, their Super contributions may be taxed by the ATO at the highest marginal rate. So it’s important to include it with your next contribution advice.
9. What ATO obligations do Employers need to be aware of?
The ATO has prepared a guide for employers. Visit the employer section of ATO website for more information.
10. Where can I find forms and publications to help with my super admin?
We’ve made it easy for you to find what you are looking for by putting them all in the one place. You can find them above on this page in the Important Docs for Employers section.
