In a few years, employers may be required to pay super at the same time as wages

The Federal Government has announced that it’s considering amending super laws to require super to be paid on payday. The change is set to take effect from 1 July 2026, and it will aim to stop disreputable employers from exploiting their employees and avoid liability building up on the books.

This change may affect your cash flow if you are paying super quarterly. We suggest a staggered approach to pay employees super in the next two years. Start by increasing the frequency of paying super from three months to two. Do this for six months, then increase frequency to one month until your pay cycle aligns with super payment.

If you’re keen to explore changing accountants, we have a non-obligation process to do that. The first step is booking a strategy call with one of our accounting team. It’s a free 20-minute zoom or phone call where you get to meet us to manage your questions. 

From that point, you can consider doing a “Look Under The Hood” with us. There is no obligation to change accountants, but we give you a second opinion if you’re paying too much tax. 

Throughout that process, we can identify any problems we see with your current setup. Anything that your current accountant hasn’t claimed, or tax you may have overpaid, and strategies of how we might fix that going forward. We can run through with you once you book with us.
