Obligations for Queensland Government employers
All employers have some things they need to know and do to meet their super responsibilities. As a Queensland Government employer, there are some additional requirements you need to fulfil. We can help you meet these obligations, so you can focus on looking after Queenslanders.
Most employers need to pay a minimum rate of 9.5% of an employee's ordinary time earnings (OTE) salary to their super account.1 This is called the Superannuation Guarantee (SG).
However, many Queensland Government employers are required to pay super at a higher rate if an employee is making 'standard contributions'. Standard contributions are an amount of between 2% and 5% of an employee's salary2 that they can pay to their super either before tax by salary sacrificing, or as after-tax contributions.
For an employee making standard contributions, the amount you need to pay will depend on what type of QSuper account they have, and whether they are a police officer or not. If you’re unsure of the superannuation arrangements for your employees, please contact us.

Queensland Government employees can choose which fund they want their super paid into. As an employer, you need to:
If your new employee doesn't make a choice, we'll automatically open a QSuper account for them once you start making contributions as QSuper is your default super fund. Your employee doesn't need to complete any forms to open an account.
Employees who have an existing QSuper account can complete a QSuper Nomination form to let you know they'd like their super to continue to be paid into their existing account, rather than having an additional account opened.
There are other super obligations that apply to all employers, including:
