    This is a summary of the data to be provided to a super fund when making contributions under the SuperStream standard on behalf of an employee.

    All items identified as mandatory must be provided to the super fund. Mandatory information that is not provided may lead to the super fund being unable to allocate the contribution to a fund member and may also lead to compliance action by the ATO.
