Knowing when and how often you need to pay super contributions will help you avoid penalties. Here’s where you’ll find all the relevant dates about managing super.

Making contributions

We know that the end of financial year can be a busy time. To help ensure your SG contributions are received and paid into the correct financial year, member contributions need to be submitted no later than Tuesday, 23 June 2020. Failing to meet this deadline can impact members concessional and non-concessional contribution caps for the financial year. Contributions can take between 3 and 5 business days to be processed, however processing delays may occur if data supplied has errors. For contributions submitted after the deadline, we cannot guarantee they will be treated as being received in the 2019/20 financial year, affecting members concessional and non-concessional caps for that financial year.

We recommend that our employers schedule super payments on a monthly cycle to ensure they are never at risk of missing the deadlines below.
