The ATO has identified a number of industries that are at high risk of not complying with superannuation requirements. They are:
- accommodation industry – for example, housekeepers, receptionists and hotel staff
- accounting profession – for example, accountants and accounting clerks
- computer system design and related services – for example, software and applications programmers and ICT managers.
The ATO says that over the next six months, it will provide targeted information to employers in these industries to help them understand their obligations under Australia’s superannuation guarantee law. Once the education campaign is finished, the ATO will undertake reviews of employers who continue to not comply.
