Help making super contributions 

As an employer, Government legislation requires you to pay super to eligible employees to help them save for retirement.

There are rules about who to pay, how much super you need to pay as well as how to make the payments. 

  • Pay super using an online payment system (like the QuickSuper* clearing house)
  • Make super contributions by quarterly deadlines
  • Pay super into a registered super fund, like AustralianSuper

You’ll find more information on your super obligations as an employer here.

Pay by quarterly deadlines

Your super payments must be paid into an eligible super fund by quarterly payment deadlines although many businesses choose to pay more frequently. Pay on time (before the SG tax deductibility deadline in the table below) and you can claim a tax deduction. If you don’t meet the quarterly deadline you’ll have to pay the Super Guarantee Charge and provide a statement in the following month to the ATO.
