Is your employee 18 years of age or over? 
Does your employee work for more than 30 hours in a week?


* Generally, you have to pay super for an employee if they're 18 years or over and you pay them $450 or more (before tax) in salary or wages in a calendar month. It doesn't matter whether the employee is full time, part time or casual. The maximum income on which employers must pay the Super Guarantee in 2018/19 is $54,030 per quarter ($216,120 per year).

Employees who are under 18 years old must meet the above conditions and work for more than 30 hours per week to be entitled to Super Guarantee.
