Using your own super contribution system

You can process contributions using a clearing house or payroll system, as long as it’s SuperStream compliant.

Step 1 - Register with us

It's helpful to know that someone has your back if issues with super payments come up. By registering your company details, we can contact you if there's any complications with your contributions.

Step 2 - Prepare your contributions

Before submitting your contributions, make sure you have the following details handy:

  • your employer number
  • employee’s membership number
  • employee’s name, address and date of birth
  • employee’s tax file number
  • payment amount and types (for example super guarantee rate, salary sacrifice or member voluntary contributions)
  • payment period start and end date.
Step 3 - Pay your contributions

You need to use an external SuperStream-compliant system (such as a clearing house) to pay contributions. For more information about setting up a SuperStream-compliant system, visit the ATO’s website.

When paying your contributions, you may need to add these UniSuper details:

Paying super as a sole trader

You don’t need to register with us as a sole trader unless you’re paying an employee.

If you want to pay your own super, you’ll need to make a non-concessional contribution (via BPAY®) into your personal super account. To convert your funds to a concessional contribution (providing the same tax treatment as regular employer contributions), you’ll need to submit a notice of intent.

You can submit a notice of intent via your online account.

Submit a notice of intent (3 mins to complete)

After-tax contributions

There are certain things you should consider before making contributions, such as eligibility and caps. Time limits apply to converting your funds to concession contributions.

For more information, read our After-tax contributions page.
