Superannuation

If you have employees, it is a wise idea to get help with your superannuation obligations from those with professional superannuation services experience. It is important to understand and meet your superannuation obligations for you or your employees. For example, when an employee starts you need to determine how, when, where and how much superannuation to pay, capture Tax File Numbers, keep track of deduction limits, know about eligible termination payments and more.

And then there is the reporting and record keeping – when to pay contributions and how, super fund eligibility for payments, the superannuation guarantee charge and how to calculate it. You are required to maintain records that adequately explain your superannuation guarantee transactions, including documents that show how you calculated the level of support paid for each employee a penalty of up to $2,200 applies for failing to keep records.
