Get Ready for Changes to Super Guarantee

What's happening?

From 1 July 2022, two important Super Guarantee (SG) changes will apply to your business

  • The rate of SG is increasing from 10% to 10.5%
  • The $450 per month eligibility threshold for when SG is paid is being removed.

What this means for you

These changes mean that from 1 July 2022, you'll need to make Super Guarantee Contributions at the new rate of 10.5% and employees can be eligible for Super Guarantee, regardless of how much they earn. You may have to pay SG for the first time for some or all of your employees.

The ATO are working with digital service providers (DSPs) to make sure payroll software is updated in time. If you use a tax agent such as Sentrika, we are able to assist you with any of these changes. The ATO will also have updated online tools and calculators that will be available to help you from 1 July 2022.

What you need to do

  • Check that your software is updated to correctly calculate your employees' SG entitlement from 1 July 2022.
  • If the removal of the $450 threshold means you'll be paying SG for one or more employees for the first time, you'll need to give them a  Standard Choice Form.
  • If your employee does not provide you with a choice of super fund, review the Stapled Super Fund information on our website for guidance on what you need to do next.  A stapled super fund is an existing super account linked to an individual employee.
