Super Clearing House

We currently use the ATO Super Clearing House to pay our super to.  The way it is set up means that each employees payslip shows ATO Super Clearing House as who their super is paid to.  I believe we may need to change this and show individual super providers on each employees payslip. How do we do this and still only pay the super in one lump sum to the clearing house. 
Thanks in Advance

Why don't you put the super fund on the employees card? There's a spot there for it. I use the small business superannuation clearing house and it isn't a problem.

Thanks Kevin,  I do have the super fund in the employee info but it doesn't show on the payslip.  I am wondering if I am missing something or a tick box that would make it show.

Leanne have you modified the payslip to display the detail?

Hi Kevin,
I have been into the payslip details and I have ticked every box I can.  It shows the Super Clearing house as the payee for the super but apparently I need to put the individual funds for each employee.  I don't want to go back to paying everyone individually.

You need to put the individual funds because that is the ultimate recipient of the funds. The clearing house is just a conduit. You dont need to pay everyone individually. I dont think you understand the way superstream is meant to work. The staff can use the ATO website to check their contributions are up to date. Kevin t:0407744914

I think I have it sorted. I hadn't put the individual fund under fund scheme When I do this the individual fund shows on the payslips.

Hi, I have a related problem. I have set up employees super accounts under their employee profile. Until now all employees were with the same superannuation fund. I now have a new employee who is with a different fund. I use the main fund super as a super clearing house. The problem I have is reconciling bank transactions again payroll transactions. As the payroll records function records the super payable against a single super fund contact, I can't attribute different super providers against a single bank transaction. Any ideas how to get around this?

It IS a single contact. It also records it against the liability. You dont have a problem. In the olden days you could record it against the different funds. You dont need to do that. Honestly you are overthinking this
