Small Business Superannuation Clearing House – How it can help your small business with SuperStream

Small Business Superannuation Clearing House – How it can help your small business with SuperStream

The Australian Tax Office (ATO) has a service called the Small Business Superannuation Clearing House, which is to help your small business (with less than 19 employees) meet its super obligations as employers. Here is what the ATO site says –

The Small Business Superannuation Clearing House is a FREE, optional service for employers with 19 or fewer employees, as well as those businesses with an annual aggregated turnover of less than $2 million.

You can make your super guarantee (SG) contributions as a single electronic payment to the clearing house, which then distributes the payments to employees’ super funds.

The clearing house is designed to reduce red tape and compliance costs for small business.

If you register to use this service:

  • Your super guarantee contributions are counted as being paid on the date the clearing house accepts them (so long as the fund does not reject the payments).
  • You have 21 days to pass an employee’s choice of fund on to the clearing house.

The page with links to Register (or Login if you have started) is HERE to use the Small Business Superannuation Clearing House.

Or Phone 1300 660 048 or email SBSCHEnquiries@sbsch.gov.au for information.

Using the Small Business Superannuation Clearing House will ensure you are SuperStream compliant by 1 July 2015.
