Massive Super Changes Coming in Nov – How Ready is your Organisation?
New employer super obligations are fast approaching – commencing on 1 November 2021, known as Super Stapling. A recent CSBA survey showed 54% of employers were unaware of this new legislation.
This means there will be an extra step required when new employees don’t choose a super fund. Instead, employers will need to request the ‘stapled super fund’ details from the ATO.
Join our webinar for an overview of the new employer obligations – sharing details of the ATO process and how you can meet your obligations under the Super Stapling rules.
