From 1 July 2021, the Superannuation Guarantee is increasing from 9.5% to 10%.

In coming years, superannuation rates are set to increase as follows:

Period General Super Guarantee %
1 July 2021 – 30 June 2022 10%
1 July 2022 – 30 June 2023 10.50%
1 July 2023 – 30 June 2024 11%
1 July 2024 – 30 June 2025 11.50%
1 July 2025 – 30 June 2026 12%

Employers should be aware of and ideally budget for, these increases as they may also coincide with wage increases for 2021.

The existing eligibility requirements for superannuation payments to employees still apply as before. The ATO provides a useful summary of who is entitled to superannation.
