Incorporated companies and trusts
The Super Guarantee (SG)
If your business is an incorporated company or trust, you're required by law to pay eligible directors and employees at least 9.5% super. This requirement also means that you must pay yourself the SG, if you are the owner of the incorporated company or trust. SG payments are generally taxed at 15% of income rather than at your marginal rate.
SG is a deductible expense for the company.
If you are eligible, you can take advantage of affordable Death and Total and permanent disablement (TPD) cover and Income protection cover through TWUSUPER. See Insurance for more information.
