Helping employers prepare for SuperStream
The deadline to be on board with SuperStream was 30 June 2016. However, we will provide compliance flexibility to small businesses that are not yet SuperStream ready until 28 October 2016.
This means we will not be taking compliance action against small businesses that missed the 30 June deadline.
We encourage you to educate and support small employers to help them get ready for SuperStream and understand its benefits. You may wish to direct them to our SuperStream information for employers.
Provide all employers with your USI and, if relevant, your payment details to:
- enable payroll system preparation
- ensure the accurate and timely payment of contributions.
You could do this in a variety of ways including your website, member communication and call centre scripting. In many cases, intermediaries such as clearing houses will be an appropriate way of conveying this information.
Your communications need to be clear that employers can choose their preferred method for complying with SuperStream – they can't be compelled to use a particular channel.
APRA funds are encouraged to educate and support small employers to help them get ready for SuperStream and understand its benefits.
