Quarterly super payments due 28 April

3 min read

A reminder that your next super guarantee (SG) payments for the quarter 1 January – 31 March are due by 28 April 2018.

Contributions should be submitted to QuickSuper by 11 April to allow for payments to non-BT super funds (which can take up to 10 business days to process).

Keep in mind

  • Payment timing. Some awards and contracts require super to be paid more regularly (for example, monthly) than the SG quarterly requirement.
  • Personal contributions. Make sure you pay these contributions on time, according to the employee's terms of employment and any industrial award conditions.
  • Public holidays. If the SG due date occurs on the weekend or a public holiday, payments can be made on the next working day.

If your payment is late

If you miss the due date you may have to pay the SG charge and lodge an SG charge statement with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

Use the SG charge statement and calculator tool on the ATO website to calculate the SG charge and prepare the statement to be lodged with the ATO.
