The Reports > Payroll > SuperStream Contributions report is a summary of the SuperStream contributions in an entity that have not yet been reported and paid, and is the first step in paying superannuation.
Data for the whole entity will be summarised in the Report Summary, with individual employee contributions listed underneath.
The SuperStream Contributions Report is split into two parts:
- The configuration for the company you are exporting super for will appear in the right column of the Report Summary section. If there are any details missing or invalid, they will be highlighted here. Until these fields are all accurately configured, you will be unable to export the SAFF document required by your gateway or fund.
- By default, the main body of the report shows all employees who have unpaid superannuation contributions. It splits the contributions by Employer SG and additional amounts contributed by the employee.
Customise the Report
If you only want to export a subset of the payments that appear in the SuperStream Contributions report, you will need to filter the report from the Report Settings drop-down.
You can use these filters to change which payments are reported for export (eg midway through July, you may wish to export payments for the April-June quarter but not any payments from the start of July onwards). You can also filter for a particular Permission Group, or limit the report to only a subset of superannuation items that you have configured in your portal.
The Report Settings summarisation filters can also be used to change how the on-screen reporting is sorted. By default, the report lists contributions by employee, but can be changed to Summarise By Fund.
However you choose to summarise the on-screen report, the exported SAFF file will include one row per employee per fund.
Validate Contribution Data
Each employee in the SuperStream Contributions report must be compliant for SuperStream. Compliance errors associated with any employees or contributions are marked with a red 'i' icon, with the number of associated errors listed in the right column.
You can click the Validation Errors link to view more details on an error.
If you have a number of employees showing errors, you can use the SuperStream Compliance report to action the corrections that are required.
Once the configuration and employee information are valid, you are ready to export the payments to the SAFF file.
To do this, select the employees that appear in the report then click Export > Export SAFF.
Once the file is downloaded, you can submit it to your gateway or fund. You will need to confirm directly with your gateway how they want this file submitted (eg through an interface on their website).
The Report Summary section will include the following data for the whole entity:
- Employees with validation errors
- Last Exported
- Exported By
- Total Super
- Total Employer SG
- Additional Employer
- Total Super (Deductions)
- Payroll Entity
- Trading Name
- Payroll Team Email
- Payroll Team Phone
- SuperStream Contact
- Employer Location ID
Each individual employee contribution will include the following data:
- Employer SG
- Additional Employer
- Super (Deductions)
- Validation Errors
You can export the on-screen view of the SuperStream Contributions report as a .pdf.
Contributions can be exported into a SAFF file, which you can upload into your clearing house or default super fund for processing. You won’t be able to download the SAFF file while there are contributions with validation errors; the errors will need to be fixed first.
