ATO forcing employers to be SuperStream compliant from Oct 28

The Australian Tax Office is requiring that all employers are SuperStream compliant as of October 28. The previous deadline of 30 June has been extended, because businesses were struggling to meet deadlines.

SuperStream compliance means employers must send superannuation contributions for employees electronically to their nominated superannuation fund, including self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs). This means employers must collect extra information from employees. 

More information can be found at the ATO's website.
