Did you know that temporary residents working in Australia are eligible for super guarantee (SG) as well?
Generally, if you pay a worker $450 or more before tax in a calendar month, you have to pay SG on top of their wages – this includes temporary residents.
When temporary residents leave Australia, they can claim the super you paid as a departing Australia superannuation payment (DASP), as long as they meet all of the requirements.
If you employ temporary residents, you should let them know they can start their DASP application using our free online application system while they are in Australia. It’s easier for them to get any supporting documents certified while they are here. When they leave Australia, they can go back to their saved DASP application and submit it.
