Generally you are required to pay SG contributions quarterly. Employers who fail to make the required payment by the due date will be liable to pay the SG Charge to the ATO.
This charge includes the unpaid super amounts (based on salary and wages and ordinary time earnings) plus interest and an administrative fee.
You have, generally, four weeks from the end of each quarter to make payments.
The easiest way to make sure your payments are made on time and are credited to the respective super funds by the due date is to use the Superconnect Clearing House.
