Employer super obligations

As an employer, you’re required to make Superannuation Guarantee (SG) contributions for your eligible employees into a complying super fund or retirement savings account (RSA) at least four times a year.

Employees can choose their own super fund, but if they don’t, you must contact the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to see if the employee has an existing super fund – their ‘stapled’ fund. If they do, you must make payments to this account.

If the new employee doesn’t have a 'stapled' fund and doesn’t choose a fund, then you must create a new account with your nominated default super fund.

Are you meeting your business super obligations?

Paying the right people and the right amount of super are just two of the things you should be doing as an employer when it comes to super. Do you know the other six? To find out if you’re meeting your business super obligations, answer a few questions using our Business Super Profile tool.
