  • Superannuation guarantee gap

    The superannuation guarantee (super guarantee) gap is an estimate of the difference between the value of super guarantee contributions required to be paid under the law and actual super guarantee contributions made.

    We refer to this as the net gap as it recognises the impacts of our compliance activities. The gap in the absence of our compliance activities is referred to as the gross gap.

    Our estimate of the net gap covers a six-year period between 2010-11 and 2015-16. For 2015-16, we estimate the super guarantee net gap to be $2.79 billion. This represents 4.8% of the theoretical estimated super guarantee amount employers were required to pay.
