SuperStream is the way businesses must pay employee superannuation guarantee contributions to super funds. With SuperStream money and data are sent electronically in a standard format.
It must be used by:
- self-managed super funds
- APRA-regulated funds.
SuperStream transmits money and information consistently across the super system – between employers, funds, service providers and the ATO. The data is linked to the payment by a unique payment reference number.
employers can make all their contributions in a single transaction, even if they're going to multiple super funds
contributions and rollovers can be processed faster, more efficiently and with fewer errors
people can be more reliably linked to their super, reducing lost accounts and unclaimed monies.
There are deadlines in place for employers to be using SuperStream. Visit the employers tab for more information.
