With the 30 June 2016 deadline looming, the ATO strongly encourages small businesses to get on board with SuperStream as soon as possible.
SuperStream is the standardisation of how employers make super contributions on behalf of their employees, and involves employers sending all super payments and employee information electronically in a standard format.
Using it is mandatory.
Unless the employer and the SMSF are related parties…
Options for becoming 'SuperStream ready' include using:
- a payroll system that meets the SuperStream standard;
- a super fund’s online system; or
- a messaging portal or a super clearing house like the ATO’s Small Business Super Clearing House (SBSCH).
The SBSCH is a free, optional service for small business with 19 or fewer employees, as well as businesses with an annual aggregated turnover of $2 million or less.
