Employer super calculator
See how much superannuation should be paid
Employers – calculate how much superannuation you have to pay.
Members – see how the regular super contribution is calculated.
We assume that the employee is an Australian resident and has provided a tax file number to their employer.
Employees can be full time, part time or casual.
The Super Guarantee is currently set at 9.5% of ordinary time earnings. This rate is set to rise incrementally to 12% by 2025. The SG percentage can be manually increased in the calculator.
If monthly salary (before tax) is $450 or more, employees are generally entitled to SG payments.
Employees under 18 must also work more than 30 hours per week to be eligible for SG payments.
The maximum super contributions base is set at $57,090 per quarter for the 2020-21 financial year. If an employee earns over this amount, the employer is not obligated to make SG contributions for anything above the limit.
