When to make payments

 

Cbus employer super 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's important that Cbus members receive regular super payments so the money can be allocated to their account and investment earnings can begin as soon as possible.

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.

This is when your employee agrees to ‘sacrifice’ a part of their before-tax pay and arranges for you to have it paid into their super fund instead.

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.

Changing employee payment details

 

You may need to update your employee details at any point in time – a new employee may start, they may choose to use a different super fund or an employee may leave your business.

It’s easy to keep your employee details up to date through Employer Online.

  • If a new employee is already a Cbus member, simply add them to the system.
  • If a new employee isn’t a Cbus member, they can join Cbus online or complete the membership application form Cbus Industry Super PDS (PDF).  Alternatively, if Cbus is selected as your default fund, you can assign your new employee to the fund when adding them through Employer Online. You can add their Cbus membership number at a later date.
  • If a new employee chooses a different fund, you can enter their new fund details.
