Before you make any payments on behalf of your new employee, just check that they’re eligible to contribute to QSuper under the Queensland Government contribution arrangements.

Your new employee will need to provide a:

  • Current residential address
  • Valid tax file number (TFN)

We’re not allowed to hold personal after-tax (non-concessional) contributions for more than 30 days, unless your new employee provides a valid TFN. After 30 days, without a valid TFN, we’ll return the contributions to the applicable pay office. We can’t accept any future after-tax contributions until the employee provides a TFN.

If your new employee has an existing Defined Benefit account or State account with QSuper, and you need to confirm that he or she’s eligible to continue contributing, or find out the required contributions, our Employer Help Desk will be happy to help.


Before your first payment can be made for any employee, they must be eligible for QSuper membership. Eligibility is established when the employee has either of the following:

  • Yearly salary of at least 50% of the tax-free threshold for taxation purposes under the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (Commonwealth)
  • A salary of at least $450 a month.
