• Itemised account - superannuation contribution surcharge

    This screen displays transactions for a superannuation contribution surcharge payer account.

    You can choose to view transactions processed within a selected date range. The date range can be changed by selecting different ‘From’ and ‘To’ dates. You can also sort the transaction list into either process or effective date order.

    The estimated general interest charge (GIC) on this account can not be automatically calculated and, therefore, the payout amount also can not be automatically calculated.


    If an accurate payout amount for the account including an estimate of GIC or a special calculation is required, contact superannuation.

    General interest charge information

    GIC is an additional charge imposed where a payment is not received by the due date. It will continue to accrue daily on a compounding basis from the due date until the charge and any outstanding GIC is paid in full.

    In most instances, the GIC is tax deductible in the income year it is incurred or accrued, even if it has not been paid. If the Commissioner subsequently remits or reduces the GIC claimed as a tax deduction, the amount remitted is taxable in the income year it is remitted.
