ClickSuper has an extensive database that is updated from the Australian Taxation Office that lists all the Superannuation Fund ABNs in Australia, including SMSFs (self-managed superannuation funds). This database is updated on a daily basis and contains all available superannuation products and payroll deductions. As such, it is an ever evolving list - just because a superfund was valid last month does not mean it will be valid next month.
To ensure that all superannuation payments made through ClickSuper are forwarded to the intended superannuation fund, ClickSuper requires that all fund data uploaded is valid - if there is an error within an uploaded superannuation file, the upload will fail and client's need to update the erroneous data within payroll and re-submit their superannuation file.
The best way to validate your superannuation fund data is to use the ClickSuper Search facility located on the ClickSuper website. To access the Search facility please click the Search menu option as shown in the screenshot below:
Using the Search Facility is easy.
It is within the below search grid that you can validate your superannuation fund data. Simply enter the name, ABN or USI for the superfund that you wish to search for - in the example below Hostplus as been entered.
Results containing your search query will be displayed. In this example, at time of searching the following examples were found for Hostplus:
The ABN listed in the ABN column is the superannuation ABN that needs to be used. The Product Code column contains the USI which also needs to be used in conjunction with the ABN. Both of these details ensure that ClickSuper send superannuation to the correct place so it is important that the correct superfund details are used. If in doubt, please refer to the appropriate employee or the superfund.
For the above example with Hostplus, I would need to ensure that in my payroll software both the ABN listed (68657495890) and the USI (HOS0100AU) are listed for all employees having their superannuation paid to Hostplus. If either ABN or USI are incorrect the file will fail.
If any employee needs to a SMSF (self managed superannuation fund) the process is slightly different. When searching, the INCLUDE SMSF tickbox needs to be ticked in order for any SMSF results to be displayed.
Please note there are over 400,000 SMSF so if you select INCLUDE SMSF checkbox this will considerably slow down the search query.
An example is shown below for filtering on Product Name "AMP". The Product Name Contains AMP was entered as the filter criteria:
In order for your superannuation fund data to be accurate the ABN and Product Code/USI shown below needs to be also be present in your payroll software.
If you try and upload a file with a different ABN or Product Code/USI for any fund that does not match what is in the ClickSuper database, the file will fail upload.
If your search criteria produce no results, please confirm your data with the appropriate employee or superannuation fund.
