You can pay your employees superannuation earlier than the quarter due dates if you like. The important thing is to ensure that all superannuation contributions for your employees are paid in full by the due date.
If a third party service is used there may be a delay in the payment reaching the employee superannuation account. The due dates reflect the payments being made to the superannuation account, make sure if using a third party service that the payments will reach the intended accounts on time.
