Reminder of March 2023 Quarter Superannuation Guarantee (‘SG’)

April 14, 2023 | Robyn Bull

Employers are reminded that the SG obligation for the 1 January 2023 to 31 March 2023 quarter is due by 28 April 2023.

If the correct amount of SG is not paid by an employer on time, they will be liable to pay the SG charge, which includes a penalty and interest component.

As a reminder, from 1 July 2022, the compulsory SG rate increased to 10.5% (previously 10%).  The compulsory SG rate will increase again to 11% for the period 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024.  So now might be a good time to ensure your payroll systems are updated by the start of the next income year.
