Superannuation changes from 1 July 2022

Taryn Heinrich

As the new financial year approaches, there are some key superannuation changes to be aware of that come into effect from 1 July 2022.

What’s changing?

  • Super contributions increase from 10% to 10.5%
  • Eligible workers aged 18 years or older earning less than $450 a month before tax will be entitled to receive the compulsory super guarantee (SG) payment from their employees

How to prepare:

  • Review your payroll and accounting systems, updating them to ensure that you continue to pay the correct amount of super for your employees.
  • Ensure your employee’s information is correct and updated in your systems to ensure you have the correct details for EOFY.
  • If you are unsure about your obligations, The Australian Taxation Office provides a Superannuation guarantee contributions calculator which helps you work out the SG amount you will need to pay.
