Important changes to your super obligations

There are some important upcoming changes to super rules coming into effect on 1 July which you need to know about.
$450 monthly super threshold abolished

From 1 July 2022, employers will no longer be exempt from making super guarantee (SG) payments for employees who earn less than $450 (before tax) a month.

This change was proposed by the Australian Government when it handed down its annual Federal Budget on 11 May 2021.

Super guarantee rate increasing

From 1 July 2022, the SG rate will increase from 10% to 10.5%.
The new 10.5% SG rate applies to all ordinary time earnings (OTE) paid from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023. The 10% SG rate applies to all OTE paid from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022.
