From 1/7/14 employers have to pay 9.5% super, an increase of .25%.
This rate will remain in place until 1/7/18 when it will go up to 10%.
Every year following that the rate will increase a further .5% until it reaches 12% on 1/7/22.
Did you know that under the Liberal government’s proposed paid parental leave scheme super is paid in addition to the 6 months’ salary?
Under the current scheme an eligible parent receives 18 weeks of the minimum wage (currently $640-90 per week) but no super.
