It’s done. The superannuation guarantee (SG) will increase to 10% on 1July 2021 – a rise of 0.5% from the current 9.5%. This is the first of five legislated increases scheduled to take compulsory super – the minimum amount that a business must pay into a contractor’s super fund – from 9.5% of salary to 12% over five years. So, here’s the thing. We all know that right now, it’s tough to attract any contractors – let alone the best. There just aren’t any around. So why not use this increase in Super contributions to your advantage. Next time you re-sign your contractors, rather than leaving the total project price as it was, add the 0.5%. It won’t cost your business much, but it will say a lot to your contractors about how much you value their service and expertise. And that will go a long way towards building their loyalty towards you!
