Q&A8 Superannuation Contribution payment timing
Do I have to pay my superannuation contribution prior to 30 June to ensure its tax deductible in that year?
Answer – Yes. In both cases where you pay employee super and personal superannuation contributions, you must ensure the payment has not only been made, but to be certain, the payment must have also been cleared in your bank account. It is best not to leave these type payments until 30 June, in fact, to be sure make them at least 5-10 days prior to 30 June.
