The ATO enjoys a high success rate when it comes to challenging the treatment of contractors under the superannuation guarantee legislation. The ATO also has a strong incentive to monitor this area as SG liabilities and penalties can accumulate very quickly.

As the SG amnesty period is scheduled to finish on 7 September 2020, time is running out for employers to identify historical problems and take advantage of the amnesty. Employers who don’t identify problems and report them to the ATO by this date are likely to be subject to higher penalties if the ATO picks up on the problem.

In this pragmatic webinar we help you identify arrangements at risk of triggering significant superannuation guarantee liabilities and explore the steps to minimise that risk. This is an issue that is not going away any time soon.

  • What are the key factors that need to be considered in determining whether a worker is treated as an employee for SG purposes?
  • Can a business contract out of its SG obligations?
  • How far back can the ATO go to recover SG liabilities?
  • What are the courts saying about this issue?
  • Can workers operate through companies or trusts to avoid SG obligations?
  • Can businesses with SG problems just shut down and start fresh with a clean slate?
  • What other problems can arise when contractors are engaged?
