All employers please note: To ensure that contributions are shown on members' 30 June benefit statements, it is highly recommended that contributions to default fund members are remitted and paid by close of business on 23 June. This date allows adequate time for contributions to be received and allocated to fund members in case of any banking or remittance issues.
If 23 June falls on a weekend, please ensure contributions are remitted and paid on the following business day.
Please note: Any contributions remitted or paid after the deadline stated above may result in the contributions being applied to member accounts in the following financial year.
Do not remit and pay for contributions intended to be indexed in the following financial year until earliest 1 July. Contributions remitted or paid before 1 July may result in the contributions being applied to member accounts in the same financial year rather than the next financial year.
Please also be aware that employers are obligated to make payments for each quarterly period by the below final payments dates, as specified by the ATO:
|1||1st July - 30th September||28th October|
|2||1st October - 31st December||28th January|
|3||1st January - 31st March||28th April|
|4||1st April - 30th June||28th July|
It's crucial to pay the correct amount of super by the cut-off date each quarter to avoid paying the Superannuation Guarantee charge to the Australian Tax Office.
You can choose to make super payments more regularly than quarterly, e.g. fortnightly or monthly, so long as the total amount you owe each quarter is paid by the quarterly cut-off dates.
