PNG laws on superannuation

Under the Superannuation (General Provisions) Act 2000, and Superannuation (Amendment) Regulation 2004, it is mandatory for companies and individuals that fall under the following categories to contribute to a superannuation fund:

  • companies that employ or engage more than 15 people;
  • individuals who work more than 3 months, and are employed by a company that employs more than 15 people.

Sections 76 and 77 of the Act state that employers who meet the criteria above must pay 8.4% based on each employee’s gross salary, to a nominated superannuation fund, on behalf of each employee.

In addition to this, they must deduct and facilitate payment of 6% from each employee’s gross salary to the same fund.

Payment must be made within 14 days of the calendar month.

The Bank of PNG penalises any employers who are not complying with the regulations stated above. Penalties are a fine of up to K500,000 or a term of imprisonment not exceeding 5 years, or both a fine and imprisonment.

Companies employing less than 15 people, or individuals working for a company that employs less than 15 people can contribute voluntarily to a superannuation fund. The rates of 8.4% employer contribution, and 6% employee contribution apply.
