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

Register your company details and we’ll contact you if there are any complications with your contributions.

In a rush? Call us on 1800 331 685 (8.30am to 6.00pm Melbourne time, Monday to Friday).

Step 2

Have your employer number handy.

You’ll need the employee’s: UniSuper member number, name, address, date of birth; TFN; payment amount and types (super guarantee, salary sacrifice, voluntary contributions); pay period start and end dates.

Step 3
Pay contributions

Use an SuperStream-compliant system (such as a clearing house) to pay contributions.

Visit the ATO website for more on SuperStream.

Refer to UniSuper’s important fund details if required.

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.

Submit a notice of intent via your personal online account. This should take just 3 minutes 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.
