From the 1st of July there will be changes to the Fitness Industry Award wages. 
 
What are the changes?

➡️ The National Minimum Wage has increased by $40 per week, which amounts to an increase of 5.2%
➡️ Award minimum wages have increased by 4.6%, which are subject to a minimum increase for adult award classifications of $40 per week and based on a 38-hour week for a full-time employee.

The rates in this guide apply from the first full pay period on or after the 1st of July 2022. The pay guides have the current minimum pay rates for full-time, part-time and casual employees.

Superannuation Changes from 1 July 2022:

There will also be Superannuation changes from the 1st of July 2022, employees can be eligible for super guarantee (SG), regardless of how much they earn. This is because the $450 per month eligibility threshold for when SG is paid is being removed. You only need to pay super for workers under 18 when they work more than 30 hours in a week.
 
The super guarantee (SG) rate will also increase from 10% to 10.5% on the 1st of July 2022. You'll need to use the new rate to calculate super on payments you make to employees on or after the 1st of July, even if some or all of the pay period is for work done before the 1st of July. The SG rate is legislated to increase to 12% by 2025.

Please make sure you update your payroll and accounting systems so that you continue to pay the right amount of super for your employees.

A global Deloitte Report, commissioned by The Global Health & Fitness Alliance, in collaboration  with AUSactive, has analysed health and fitness industry impacts on 46 countries; showing transforming inactive individuals to active is key to cutting healthcare costs and raising GDP.

In its Australia report, Deloitte found the Australian health and fitness sector had a direct GDP contribution of AUS$1.52 billion (US$1.1 billion) and an indirect contribution of a further $2.49 billion (US$1.8 billion) from its supply chain.
AUSactive CEO Barrie Elvish said the contribution of over $4 billion to the Australian GDP showed the significant size, impact and demand for the health and fitness sector.

“The Australian health and fitness sector continues to evolve with new formats, styles and modalities continuing to emerge  to meet consumer demand to keep active and healthy in a variety of ways,” Mr Elvish said.

“In addition to the GDP impact, our industry directly supports more than 31,000 jobs and an additional 26,000 indirectly according to the Deloitte report.
“Many people are surprised just how much Australians are using health and fitness centres such as gyms, Yoga and Pilates studios, dance, group classes and many others to get active. 

“Going to the gym is the second most popular physical activity in Australia after walking. It’s no wonder our sector contributed a significant amount of money to the GDP.”
