We have mentioned this in a number of past editions of S & W Insight but it is now time to finalise any access to the Superannuation Guarantee Amnesty.
The amnesty was introduced on 6 March 2020. The amnesty period ends on 7 September so please ensure you do everything you need to before the expiration date. Details of the amnesty are shown in the link below.
The ATO has recognised that many employers may wish to participate in the amnesty, but are concerned about their ability to make payments due to the loss of income suffered during the COVID – 19 crisis. The ATO have stated that they will work collaboratively with those who participate to provide flexible payment plans that extend beyond 7 September. Please note, however, that only payments made prior to the 7 September deadline will be tax deductible.
If you wish to discuss the amnesty, don’t hesitate to contact your client manager in S & W.
