Payday super and integrated super payments

What is payday super and why does it matter? 

In the 2023-2024 federal Budget, the Australian government
announced that employers will be required to make super contributions at the same time they pay salary and wages.

This is called payday super.

From 1 July 2026, the new rules are proposed to come into effect. 
Payday super could have a significant impact on the workflow processes of many Australian employers, particularly for those who already struggle to make super contribution on time. 

Payday super follows government research that more frequent contributions can lead to an increased balance of 1.5% at retirement.

To pay super at the same time as wages, payroll details and super information needs to be connected and integrated as much as possible. 

Technology is moving from being an enabler for super to now being essential.”
