How to make payments

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 our payment systems; 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 Industry Super PDS (PDF)

Access employee member details

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

When to make payments?

Employer superannuation contributions are due on the first business day of every month. For example, super payments for March are due on the first business day in April.

Making regular monthly super payments to your Cbus members may help you manage the cash flow of your business. It can also have a significant impact on your employees’ super balance over time. 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.

Salary sacrifice

Cbus can assist you in arranging to pay salary sacrifice contributions into your employee’s super fund.  

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 your payroll area.
