  • Missed and late super guarantee payments

    The super guarantee (SG) September quarterly payment was due 28 October. If an employer missed the deadline there are steps they need to take.

    Ninety-five percent of super guarantee is paid to employees. Not paying super means employees miss out on money they need for retirement, contributing to the SG gap.

    The gap is the difference between the theoretical amount payable by employers to be fully compliant with their SG obligations and actual contributions received by funds. We released these figures for the first time this year with a suite of initiatives to help reduce it.

    This includes taking firm action against employers who are not paying their super entitlements, thus contributing to the gap.
