Are you paying super on time?
Staying on top of payment deadlines and other dates is important as missing a payment could result in a fine.
· You must pay SG at least four times a year by the quarterly due dates.
· If you don’t pay SG on time, you may have to pay a fine.
When to pay super
For SG contributions, we recommend making monthly payments. Employers that are not required to contribute on a monthly basis under an award or industrial agreement can choose to make quarterly contributions.
*When using KeyPay, you can be reminded to pay your SG contributions via an action notification each due date.
What happens if you miss your SG payments?
If you miss the deadlines, you may have to pay an SG charge. Unfortunately, this charge isn’t tax deductible.
Beam can process the payment of Super Guarantee contributions after the due date however, you will still be liable to pay the superannuation guarantee charge to the ATO.
