claim a tax deduction - super payments for employees

Super Contribution – Tax Deduction

Tash-Ly’s Tips & Tricks – Did you know…..?

You can claim a tax deduction for super payments you make for your employees – but only in the financial year in which you make them. Contributions are considered as paid when the super fund receives them, not on the date you physically paid it. Therefore, we recommend that you lodge and pay your employee super contributions at least a week before 30 June to be able to claim them as a tax deduction in the relevant year.

Where possible, pay your April and May super early in June, so you are only looking to finalise the one month’s super in that final week of the financial year. Using automated super lodgements through Xero are pain-free and efficient. Don’t miss out on a valuable tax deduction – talk to us about scheduling your employee super this financial year.
