      • You can submit your contributions and payments through our employer online facility. Call us so we can set you up with a password and get you started.
      • Alternatively you can download our Contribution remittance advice form (XLS). Mail or email your completed advice and make payment by EFT, BPAY or cheque. Call us for details on how to pay by EFT or BPAY.

      Paying contributions to a number of funds

      Australian Catholic Superannuation clearing house facility

      We provide a free clearing house facility for eligible employers who have selected Australian Catholic Superannuation as their default fund. Through the clearing house you're able to make a single payment and the clearing house will distribute the money to different funds in accordance with your instructions. To take advantage of this service, phone your local Australian Catholic Superannuation Regional Manager on 1300 658 776.

      Small business superannuation clearing house

      The Australian Taxation Office provides a free clearing house for employers with fewer than 20 employees. For details, visit the Australian Taxation Office website.

  • Enrolling new employees

      • New employees may already be members of Australian Catholic Superannuation. In that case, you should not re-enrol them. Instead ask for their Client ID number and include it on your contribution return.
      • New employees who are not already Fund members should complete a copy of our Member application: Employer Sponsored & Personal Plans (PDF). This form enables members to provide us with their personal details, to make an investment choice and to request additional insurance.


      You should include new members’ details on your next contribution return.

  • Updating employee information

    • Help us to ensure the information we hold about our members is accurate by providing updated information on your super contribution return. Or you can email the details to cssf@catholicsuper.com.au

      In addition to informing us of name and address changes, you should also provide details of employees who have taken extended leave or who have terminated their employment.

  • Helping employees who are ill or injured

    • Most employer sponsored members have insurance within the Fund.

      However, sometimes employees forget they have insurance, and so are subject to additional stress when they are ill or injured.

      You can help by reminding employees who are unable to work for more than a short period of the likelihood that they have insurance and suggesting they contact the Fund.

      Call us on 1300 658 776 if you or your staff need information about our insurance.

  • Stronger Super summary for employers

    • The Government’s Stronger Super reforms will result in a number of changes to superannuation over the next few years, including the following major requirements for employers:

      • MySuper—From 1 January 2014, if your employees have not made a choice of fund you will be required to pay their SG contributions to a fund that offers a MySuper product. Australian Catholic Superannuation has a licensed MySuper product.

       

      • SuperStream—SuperStream compliance is mandatory for all employers making super contributions for their employees. It means that employers will be required to electronically send contributions to super funds using a standard data and payment format. The Australian Taxation Office has set the following deadlines for compliance: 

        • Employers with 20 or more employees must be compliant by 31 October 2015
        • Employers with 19 or fewer employers must be compliant by 30 June 2016
         
         

        If your organisation is not yet compliant, we strongly advise you to contact your Australian Catholic Superannuation Regional Manager so you can begin the process as soon as possible. For more information on SuperStream compliance, as well as a list of Fund contacts, visit our Superstream FAQs page.

       

      • Electronic transmission of contributions—This is intended to allow for a more automated and timely processing of transactions with fewer errors. It will result in improved efficiency, an easier system for employers to use, fewer lost accounts and more timely flow of money to member accounts.

        We're offering a clearing house service to enable our medium to large employers to satisfy the legislated SuperStream data and payment standards and also reduce the time spent processing employee super contributions. We’ll be working with our employers who take up this service to simplify their SuperStream compliance process as much as possible.

        Smaller employers will also be able to streamline their processing by using the Small Business Superannuation Clearing House service offered by the Australian Taxation Office.


      We understand that these new requirements may be a major change to your current contribution remittance procedures, so please call us on 1300 658 776 for more information on any of these reforms, or visit the Australian Government’s Stronger Super website.

      We also recommend that you consult with your payroll service provider to ensure that you are able to meet the new requirements by the due dates.
