Have a

Question?

Find answers to some of the questions we commonly get asked about partnering with Hostplus as an employer. 

QuickSuper is a clearing house designed to make it easy for you to make contributions to your employee’s super accounts. A clearing house allows you to make a lump sum contribution for all employees across multiple superannuation funds using a simple online system. Best of all, there’s no charge for registered Hostplus employers.

The Australian government implemented Superannuation Guarantee (SG) legislation to provide workers with a minimum level of super to help them save for their retirement. As an employer, you’re required by law to make SG contributions (payments) on behalf of your full-time, part-time and casual employees, including temporary residents, if they:

  • are at least 18 years old, or
  • are under the age of 18 and work 30 hours or more per week.

The minimum Superannuation Guarantee (SG) payment is currently 11% of your employee’s ordinary time earnings. If your employees are covered by an award or employment agreement that specifies a higher super contribution than 11%, you must pay the higher amount. 

SG rates are scheduled to increase. See the table below for the proposed increases through to 2025. For the latest information about SG rates and ordinary time earnings, call the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) on 13 10 20 or visit the ATO website.

1 July 202311.0%
1 July 202411.5%
Year starting on or after 1 July 202512.0%

 

Contributions are required quarterly, but if you prefer to pay more frequently that’s fine. The frequency of payments may vary depending on whether any of your employees are covered by an award or employment agreement that specifies alternative payment periods. For most employees, Superannuation Guarantee (SG) contribution due dates are listed below:

Super Guarantee due dates

SG quarterDue date for payments to Hostplus
Due dates for payment of SG
Due date for payment of quarterly SG Charge

1 Oct–31 Dec14 Jan28 Jan28 Jan
1 Jan–31 Mar14 Apr28 Apr28 May
1 Apr–30 Jun14 Jul28 Jul28 Aug

 

Please note: even though the legal due date is the 28th of the month following the close of the quarter, Hostplus prefers contributions to be paid by the 14th. For example, we expect contributions for the 1 October–31 December quarter by 14 January, even though they are not legally required until the 28th. This gives us the opportunity to follow up in case of errors or uncertainty, and helps protect you from negative implications. 

 

Late payments may attract the Superannuation Guarantee Charge. This is made up of three parts:

  • the SG payment
  • an administration charge of $20 per employee per quarter, and       
  • an interest charge of 10% p.a. on any SG shortfall amounts imposed by the ATO.

Once you’ve submitted your contribution details, we accept Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) and direct debit for your payments through QuickSuper. For more information on payment options, call us on 1300 467 875.
