Streamline your super payments
Making payments is easy. If not all your employees are CareSuper members, that’s not a problem. QuickSuper, our clearing house solution, allows you to make all your employee super contributions in the one place, no matter which super fund they’re with.
Learn your super obligations
Understand your obligations as an employer, including when to pay super contributions, how to nominate a MySuper fund and the rules around tax file numbers.
First, you’ll need to join CareSuper as a participating employer. You’ll need your company name, ABN and contact email handy, as well as a few other personal details. We’ll confirm your application via email once it’s all done and prompt you to register for QuickSuper, our online clearing house that allows you to make payments for all your employees (whether they’re CareSuper members or not) in the one place.
We must be set as your default fund the first time you use QuickSuper. To do this, click 'Create new relationship' under the 'Fund relationships' sub-menu and make sure to tick the default box. You'll also need to ensure your default fund is configured in your payroll system.
You need to pay super guarantee (SG) contributions for eligible employees at least four times a year.
For more information on the rules around paying super contributions, refer to our contribution and payment requirements page.
Once you’ve joined CareSuper as a participating employer, it’s easy to manage all your payments in the one place via QuickSuper, our online clearing house solution. You can use QuickSuper to pay super contributions for all your employees, even if not all of them are CareSuper members. Refer to the QuickSuper FAQ.
Our client partnership team can organise educational seminars for your team, either virtually or at your workplace (when available), at no extra cost to you. We also have a range of tools and educational resources on our website to help your employees understand super and achieve their financial goals.
Plus, as part of their membership, CareSuper members have access to financial advice over the phone at no extra cost.*

Legally, the ATO can't extend the due date for SG contributions. If you are experiencing difficulty in making payments, you may have the option to pay as much as you can by the due date, even if you can't pay in full. If you can’t pay the full amount, you’ll need to lodge a Super guarantee charge statement with the ATO. For more details, visit the ATO website.
The JobKeeper payment scheme finished on 28 March 2021. However, the JobKeeper payment scheme was amended to make JobKeeper payments available (in limited circumstances) to some business after 31 March 2022. For more information, visit the ATO website.
The Victorian Government is providing one-off payments to financially support eligible Victorian workers who are waiting for test results or need to self-isolate or quarantine due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). For more information visit the Victorian Government Coronavirus website.
Full-time and part-time employees who cannot come to work because they're sick with coronavirus (or other illness) can take paid sick leave if they have accrued it. If an employee needs to look after a family member or a member of their household who's sick with coronavirus, or suffering an unexpected emergency, they're entitled to take paid carer’s leave if they have accrued leave. Go to the Fair Work website for more.
