Employers need to be aware of two important superannuation changes from 1 July 2022.
1: From 1 July 2022, employees can be eligible for super guarantee (‘SG’), regardless of how much they earn, because the $450 per month eligibility threshold has been removed.
However, for workers under 18, employers only need to pay super when they work more than 30 hours in a week.
2: The SG rate will increase from 10% to 10.5% on 1 July 2022. Employers will need to use the new rate to calculate super on payments made to employees on or after 1 July, even if some or all of the pay period includes work done before 1 July.
Employers should update their payroll and accounting systems to ensure they continue to pay the correct amount of super for their employees.
