The Your Future, Your Super Bill 2021 recently passed Parliament and introduces changes to default super arrangements.
From 1 November 2021, if a new employee doesn’t choose where they want their employer contributions paid by completing a Choice form, you’ll need to confirm with the ATO whether they have an existing super account and their account details. If they don’t have an existing super account and they don’t make a choice, you’ll need to set up a default account on their behalf. This change aims to help prevent the creation of unintended multiple superannuation accounts.
For more information on your default fund obligations, please refer to www.ato.gov.au
