Employers are facing increasing pressure from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to comply with obligations and make Employee Super Guarantee Payments on time, every time.

Employers need to be aware of their obligations and make sure they have systems in place in order to remain compliant. Mark these important dates in your diary.

Quarter Period Payments Due SG Charges Date (penalties)
1 1 July- 30 September 28 October 28 November
2 1 October- 31 December 28 January 28 February
3 1 January- 31 March 28 April 28 May
4 1 April- 30 June 28 July 28 August


Innocent oversights will attract the same penalties as deliberate non-compliance. In the future, there will be little leeway for businesses failing to make the required payments by the due date. Your business could face hefty fines for failure to comply with your obligations.
