Webinar Engagement  Operations  Regulation

New employer super obligations commence on 1 November – there will be an extra step where new employees don’t choose a super fund.

Employers will need to request the ‘stapled super fund’ details from the ATO.

In this webinar, AIST’s General Manager of Advocacy, Mel Birks, provides an overview of the new employer obligations. She will share details of the ATO process including screen shots of the service used to request the details of the stapled fund.

If you are in an employer facing role, then this webinar is for you!
