ATO alerts issued for unclaimed super

The Australian Tax Office (ATO) will be contacting 80,000 individuals, starting this week, to alert them of unclaimed super.

An email campaign will alert members about ATO-held unclaimed super money from 5 April. On 16 April, 20,000 letters and SMS will be sent.

The ATO currently holds unclaimed super money for around 5.38 million accounts, totalling $3.75 billion as at 30 June 2017. These alerts will form part of a number of strategies used by the Tax Office to reunite individuals with their unclaimed super.

To claim unclaimed super money, individuals must create a myGov account which is linked to ATO online services.

If you need assistance with unclaimed super, do not hesitate to contact our office today.

Amnesty means that 24,000 businesses own up to underpaying Aussies superannuation

An amnesty scheme which ended earlier this month has caused around 24,000 businesses to admit to underpayment of their worker's super. A total of 588 million dollars will be distributed to almost 400,00 individuals.

The scheme, which covered payments from the introduction of super in 1992, gave employers the opportunity to come clean without any consequences as long as they paid the unpaid super as well as 10% interest for every year the money was overdue.

The ATO will be directing its attention at any businesses that did not admit fault and these businesses will face severe penalties.

Many individuals are looking to access their superannuation early in order to have support during these times. Although there is criticism of early access to super, this facility has been helpful to many families to keep afloat.
