If you want super contributions to be included in the 2021-22 financial year (for tax deduct-ability) the contributions need to reach the super funds by Thursday, 30 June 2022.
If you use a clearing house to pay your super, their cutoff dates will be earlier than 30/6, so to let you know the key times and dates they are as follow:
ATO super clearing house
5 pm AEST 24 June 2022
2pm AEST 22 June 2022
3.30pm AEST on Thursday, 23 June 2022.
Superannuation contributions paid after this date may or may not be received by the superannuation fund by the 30 June 2022 cut off and if they aren’t then they’ll be included in the 2022-23 financial year. The final government deadline for all super contribution payments for the 2021-22 financial year is Thursday, 28 July 2022. Super contributions must be received by the super funds on or before 28 July 2022 (to be tax deductible at all).
The actual super deadline to clam the deduction for your June quarter super is 28/7, so if your contributions go in later than the dates above they are still ok – they’ll just be clamed as a deductionin the 2022/23 tax year instead.
If you need to discuss any of this further, please call the office to talk to one of the team.
