Payslip requirements from 1 July 2012

From 1 July 2012, employers will be required to report on payslips and "expected payment on or before" date in addtion to the current entitlement during the pay period. In many cases this will be the superannuation guarantee due date, or a due date under a workplace agreement or award. In some cases, however, where they remit contributions sooner, employers may choose to disclose an earlier date.

This will provide up-to-date information to employees on when they can expect superannuation contributions and will allow them to follow up with their superannuation fund to confirm that payments have been made by the due date. From 1 July 2012, subject to there being no significant payroll system costs, payslip reporting of actual contributions paid rather than just accrued contributions will commence, including the provision of information about which fund the contributions are being paid into.
