The ATO is helping small businesses to get ready for SuperStream

Did you know that SuperStream is cutting the time small businesses spend on super administration by around 70 per cent?

With only two quarters left until SuperStream becomes mandatory, now is the time for small businesses to make the change and ensure their system is running smoothly before the deadline.

Importantly, you should collect the necessary employee identification data – being your employees’ TFNs and their funds’ unique super identifiers (USIs) - and enter it into your system ahead of the next quarterly due date on 28 January. That way, you have time to check that things are running smoothly before the deadline.
