On 6 March 2020, the government introduced a superannuation guarantee (‘SG’) amnesty
Employers who come forward from 6 March 2020 need to apply for the amnesty.
This amnesty allows employers to disclose and pay previously unpaid super guarantee charge (‘SGC’), including nominal interest, that they owe their employees, for quarter(s) starting from 1 July 1992 to 31 March 2018, without incurring the administration component ($20 per employee per quarter) or Part 7 (double SGC) penalty.
In addition, payments of SGC made to the ATO after 24 May 2018 and before 7 September 2020 will be tax deductible.
Employers who have already disclosed unpaid SGC to the ATO between 24 May 2018 and 6 March 2020 don’t need to apply or lodge again.
The ATO will continue to conduct reviews and audits to identify employers not paying their employees SG.
