Reportable employer superannuation contributions

Last updated 31 May 2020

Things to know

Reportable employer superannuation contributions are additional to the compulsory contributions your employer must make. An example of a reportable employer superannuation contribution is a salary sacrificed arrangement. For more information, see Guide for employees and self-employed – reportable superannuation contributions.

If your income statement or 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 tax return to check that the figure is correct.

If your employer has incorrectly calculated the reportable employer superannuation contributions amount, ask them to provide you with the correct amount. If that amount is incorrect on your income statement/payment summary, ask your employer to report correctly to us.
