Hello Chris,

All the information you need for a SuperStream Export File should be included in the corresponding components in Payroll Premier - your Company Details, the Employee details, the Fund details and in the Super definitions for the employee's pay.    

After your own Company Details and the Employee details are correct, go to Lists > Super Funds and create and setup the required Funds. 




Information required is minimal, but you must specify whether its an APRA Fund (public fund, requires an ABN) or an SMSF (requires an ESA).




Some super fund detail is needed in the Employee file, in particular the Fund's USI (sometimes referred to by the old name of SPIN):




After pays are processed and its time to forward super contributions to the Funds, create the file in Activities > Export > Super Export:




Specify the date range being sent:




The process will identify if any errors are present, so go back and correct what has been identified as faulty:




When all is corrected press on Export SAFF to create the generic SAFF file format (Export Super Data will produce the  file compatible with NAB SuperPay).  Take note that any employee still listed with an error will not be included in the export file:




You can then upload the file to your Superannuation Clearing House.  

If your Clearing House does not accept the SAFF generic or the NAB superPay compatible, then you will need to get a sample from your Clearing House and edit this file according to their requirements through File Explorer.


Hope this helps.


regards,
John

Thank you John,  that is what I have been doing for the past few years, but now the clearing house would like the Status and Salaries included in the report and that's what I am not sure how to do.

thanks Chris,

You cannot change the contents of the Super Export file from within the product.

You can open the file from the folder you saved it to with Notepad or Excel - it will show all that it contains.  Any changes will need to be made here so follow your Clearing House's instructions for what additional information is required and where it needs to appear in the file.  Save the file in the format required by the Clearing House.


regards,
John
