Increase to employer superannuation payments

    Recommended Posts

    As of 1 July 2013 the employer Superannuation Guarantee Contribution (SGC) will increase from the current 9% of salary to 9.25% of salary.

     

    Then each year thereafter will continue to gradually increase until 1 July 2019 whereby the payment will be 12% of salary.

    I understand the government is concerned about people going into retirement and are placing the burden on the employer to rectify this problem, however, my concern with this is that it will begin to impact on the number of people an organisation employs, as their wage bill is going to increase by at least 3%, maybe they will just start trimming staff?? Especially in an environment that is getting harder and harder to operate in cost wise.
