  • Report unpaid super contributions from my employer

    You can use this online tool to let us know your employer hasn't met their super guarantee obligations.

    Use this tool to let us know your employer has:

    • not paid your super
    • paid your super late
    • paid your super to the incorrect fund.

    We'll investigate your employer based on the information you provide.

    Reporting unpaid super for a recent period

    We can only investigate an enquiry about unpaid super for a period once the employer’s due date for lodgment to us has passed. This means that if your enquiry includes any period within the current quarter, we cannot investigate unpaid super for that period. Refer to the table below to check the relevant due date for lodgment to us has passed.

    All other periods submitted will be investigated. You can lodge an enquiry for the current quarter after the 'lodgment due date to the ATO' has passed. For example, if you are lodging your enquiry to include the period 1 July 2018 to 30 September 2018, this cannot be investigated until after the lodgment due date of 28 November 2018. You can lodge another enquiry for this period after the lodgment due date.

    Report unpaid super contributions from my employer

    Information you need

    You'll need to enter information relevant to your unpaid super enquiry, including:

    • your personal details – including tax file number (TFN)
    • the period of your enquiry
    • your employer's details – including Australian business number (ABN).

    You can usually locate your employer's ABN on your last payment summary or payslip, or on their business letterhead stationery. If you don’t have these documents, you can use ABN LookupExternal Link to search for your employer’s ABN.

    Once you've entered this information, click the Submit button to lodge your enquiry. You'll receive a receipt number confirming your submission was successful.

    We'll keep you updated about the progress of your enquiry by letter or email.
