The due date for employers to make super guarantee contributions for their employees for the June 2022 quarter is 28 July 2022. Note that the super guarantee rate in relation to salary and wages paid on or before 30 June 2022 is 10%.
Employers that do not pay an employee’s superannuation guarantee amount on time (and to the right fund) are liable to pay the ‘superannuation guarantee charge’ (‘SGC’). The SGC is more than the superannuation amount that is otherwise payable to the employee and is not tax-deductible.
As we reported last month, the super guarantee rate increases to 10.5% in relation to salary and wages paid on or after 1 July 2022 (even if they are paid in relation to work performed before that date).
Note also, that contributions received by superannuation funds after 30 June 2022 will not be deductible in the 2022 income year, even if they are made in relation to work performed during the 2022 income year.
