Once you have processed your pay runs and are ready to make super contributions for your employees, you can export the SAFF file to upload to your gateway, fund or clearing house.
Using the Reports > Payroll > SuperStream Contributions report, you can review the outstanding super contributions that have not been exported. You can confirm the Payroll Entity you are viewing in the Report Settings drop-down.
Issues which are flagged in the Report Summary will be marked with a red triangle icon. Any issues flagged for an individual contribution will be listed in the Validation Errors column. You will need to amend these errors before you can export the contributions in a file.
Export the SAFF file
When you’re ready to export the SAFF file:
Select the contributions you want to include in the export.
Click Export > Export SAFF.
Submit the SAFF file to your gateway, fund, or clearing house outside of Astute. If you are not exporting a bank file from Astute to make these payments, you will also need to process payment to the gateway, fund, or clearing house.
Some funds and clearing houses may require a different file format to the SAFF file that you can export from Astute. If this applies to you, please contact your fund or clearing house directly to confirm which parts of the file you’ll need to edit before you upload it.
Once you have exported the SAFF file, head to the SuperStream Payments report to process the payment information.
