As an employer, you claim superannuation payments when they are paid – not when they are accrued, even if you report on an accrual basis for tax purposes.
However, if you wish to claim a deduction for this financial year for superannuation (quarter 4), it will need to be processed in your software by the 20th of June to allow time for the payment to be received.
If you choose to pay in July by the due date then the deduction will be claimed in the next financial year.
If you would like us to process this then please contact us as soon as possible so we can arrange a time to get this processed for you.
If you have any questions then please contact our office by phone or email. 😊
