Super for your employees

Fast and simple super payments online

We make it easy to keep up-to-date when new employees start at your business, and others leave.

You can add, remove and update employee details at any time, using Employer SuperSite or Cbus Clearing House

If a new employee is already a Cbus member, simply add them to the system.

If a new employee is not a Cbus member, they can join Cbus online or by completing the membership application form in the Cbus Member Handbook (PDF).

Access employee member details

You can access your employee member details by calling Cbus on 1300 361 784.

Making super contribution payments

Employer superannuation contributions are due and payable on the first business day of every month. So super payments for March are due on the first business day in April.

Regular payment of employee super can assist you with business cash flow. It helps your employees get more out of their super and maintains their Cbus insurance cover.

Paying monthly may also help position you as an industry employer of choice.

Member personal contributions are required to be paid within 28 days of the end of the month from when they were deducted from the employee's salary.

When do I make contribution payments?

Payment of your super contributions are due to Cbus by the first day of the following month. For example, you would pay contributions for the month of January by Wednesday 1 February.

Contribution payment start and end dates and payment due dates for each month are shown below.

Salary sacrifice

Cbus can assist you in arranging to pay salary sacrifice contributions into your employee’s super fund. This can mean worthwhile tax savings for your employee.

Your employee agrees to ‘sacrifice’ a part of their before-tax pay, in exchange for an equal super contribution made by you directly into their Cbus account.

If an employee is eligible for salary sacrifice, they can complete a Salary sacrifice contributions form (PDF). This form will need to be returned to you, their employer.
