    Question IT2 image from tax return for individuals form.

    Did your employer make reportable employer superannuation contributions on your behalf?





    Read below.

    Answering this question

    You will need every PAYG payment summary - individual non-business, PAYG payment summary - foreign employment and PAYG payment summary - business and personal services income you received that shows an amount of reportable employer superannuation contributions.

    Reportable employer superannuation contributions are additional to the compulsory contributions your employer must make. An example of a reportable employer superannuation contribution is a contribution made on your behalf under a salary sacrifice arrangement. For more information refer to Guide for employees and self employed - Reportable super contributions - income tests.

    If your payment summary shows a reportable employer superannuation contributions amount and you did not get your employer to make superannuation contributions in addition to their compulsory superannuation contributions, you should contact your employer before lodging your return to check the payment summary figure is correct.

    If your employer has incorrectly calculated the reportable employer superannuation contributions amount - ask them to provide you with a revised payment summary showing the correct amount.
