When employers make contributions to Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSF’s), the SuperStream data and payment standards require that a remittance advice also be sent. The remittance advice must be sent via an electronic message.
ClickSuper (a SuperStream provider registered with the Australian Taxation Office) offers a free service to receive the electronic message and notify the SMSF via email. The email contains a link to allow the message to be downloaded in a Microsoft Excel compatible (CSV) format.
