ATO super crackdown – child care, building, cleaning, pubs

The ATO has identified employers in the following industries as having a higher risk of not meeting their super obligations:

  • child care services;
  • building and industrial cleaning; and
  • pubs, bars and taverns.

The ATO is currently running an education campaign for business owners in these industries to help them better understand their super obligations.

It will be undertaking
audits from July 2015 of employers who continue to not meet super obligations for their employees.

The ATO is also reminding directors of companies that are required to pay Superannuation Guarantee (SG) for their employees, that they may be
personally liable for any unpaid or unreported SG Charge liabilities of their companies.
