Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

Wil the new SBSCH set up now put the onus on the BAS/Tax Agent to “dob in” clients for late payments of the Super?  If so, how will we know?  Will there be a non-compliant list emailed to us, for example?

With multiple clients, I have not had the time to log into the SBSCH to ensure that they have paid their super in time.

Please advise.

Hi @KJT,

 

Welcome to our Community!

 

The Small Business Superannuation Clearing House is designed to help report and pay super obligations, it's not designed for agents to keep track of clients making payments on time. The compliance always remains with the employer to do the right thing,

 

You can find information  about what to expect with the changes to the SBSCH on our website.

 

Thanks.

Greetings KJT

In all our discussions with the ATO as representatives of the BAS Agent community I can assure you that this change to "having access to the SBSCH through your BAS Agent Portal" (my words) does not change your liability or your obligations to the client or to the ATO.

 

Single Touch Payroll will bring employer compliance about payments of Super to light, eventually.

The changes to the SBSCH is providing us with a more efficient way to be able to manage our access to SBSCH.
