SuperStream compliance date extended for medium to large employers

Philip Hind, ATO’s National Program Manager, Data Standards & E-Commerce (SuperStream) said the ATO will extend its compliance flexibility to employers who are not yet SuperStream-ready by four months until 31 October 2015.

Employers with 20 or more employees should already be implementing SuperStream, but we understand some businesses are unlikely to make the upcoming compliance date and will need more time.

“Employers should be making sure they are putting plans in place now and come up-to-speed as soon as possible. We want to ensure businesses do not rush into this at the last minute, but take the time to get ready and ensure they get their implementation right,” Mr Hind said.

Mr Hind said the ATO would not be taking compliance action against employers who miss the 30 June deadline but will be working closely with employers over the next few months to continue providing education and support.

“The ATO’s first priority is to help employers understand and comply with their SuperStream obligations.

“Those employers making genuine attempts to get ready will be offered some flexibility to become fully SuperStream compliant in the coming months. Where necessary, we will work with employers having difficulties to help them transition-in to the new requirements,” Mr Hind said.

Mr Hind said many tens of thousands of employers have already implemented SuperStream and are experiencing the benefits, including significantly reducing the processing time it takes to make their contributions.

“Many employers have already committed to become SuperStream ready with the number of SuperStream contributions made each month already surpassing the one million mark. This will continue to grow as more employers come on board.”

There are a variety of options available for employers to adopt SuperStream. This may include upgrading their current payroll software, using a clearing house service or their default super fund’s portal.
