Superannuation Changes and Employer Sponsored Visas

Immigration Australia

Recently the Government announced that the Australian Superannuation Guarantee will increase from 10% to 10.5% on 1 July 2022.

The change will affect those sponsored workers whose employment contracts state a gross salary figure inclusive of superannuation contributions.

Sponsors are advised to ensure that the superannuation increase does not result in a decrease of the sponsored worker’s annual earnings (base salary + non-monetary earnings such as car allowances).

A decrease in annual earnings would constitute a breach of sponsorship obligations.
