No matter how big or small your organisation, you can use these resources to help you complete essential super admin tasks.
We encourage you to make your employee super contributions monthly. It's in the best interests of your employees - it's their money after all.
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. You're required to pay them to us by the 28th of the following month.
For details on how before and after-tax contributions are defined, download How super works (pdf).
No pay means no super contributions, unless they’re required by an award or workplace agreement. If one of your employees is taking leave without pay, keep listing them in your electronic or print contribution advice, but note a $0.00 payment for them.
When you become aware of an employee’s change of address, advise us on your monthly contribution advice.
It is important you do this, as we update our records based on the most recent information provided to us. If your records are out of date, member information may be posted to their old address.
Your employees can go to the 'Combine' tab in their online account and search for their lost super.
When an employee provides you with their TFN for employment purposes, you’re required by law to provide it to their super fund. Simply include it with your next contribution advice.
Encourage them to take an active interest. After all, it's their money and their future. A good place for them to start is our Tools and calculators.
