Where can I get super information and help?

Perhaps you have just started in business and you need some help in deciding what to do about super. Maybe your accountant has not really explained to you how super works in Australia. If you have any queries to your super contribution obligations, or do not understand how contributions should be calculated, or what penalties are for failing to pay contributions by required dates, you can obtain further information from the Australian Taxation Office website.

For a first port of call you should go to and look under the section for "Employers Superannuation Essentials". The advice is divided into two sections: Basic Topics and Advanced Topics. You will find a wide range of articles in these two sections detailing just about everything an employer needs to know. You can also find a large number of fact sheets and publications on the ATO website as well some of which contains information relevant to employers and other publications that can be supplied to your employees.

Then, you may have all the information you require but find it difficult to pay super each month. This is where you can be helped by visiting with Superconnect Clearing House. Through the clearing house you can make payments to any number of super funds. Really, this is the best way to ensure that super payments are sent, on time, and to the right super funds. Find out all about it and register. It costs nothing to register . . . registration is free.
