Employer Superannuation Guarantee

Employer super guarantee contributions have to be paid for each eligible employee to the correct super fund at least four times a year, by the quarterly cut-off dates shown below.

You can pay contributions more regularly than quarterly if you want to. For example, you can pay fortnightly or monthly, as long as the total super guarantee obligation for the quarter is paid by the quarterly cut-off date.

If you pay any super guarantee contributions after the cut-off date, you have not met your super guarantee obligations and will have to lodge a Superannuation guarantee charge statement - quarterly (NAT 9599) and pay the superannuation guarantee charge to the ATO.
