The move is expected to take place during March and April 2017. Over this period, you will still be able to contact the account management team as usual during business hours (AWST), from Monday to Friday.
As part of the transition to the new SuperStream Alternative File Format (SAFF), employers need to make sure they hold and use the correct super fund identifier details for the funds they are contributing to on behalf of employees.
SuperStream update - SAFF test files from providers
GESB is now ready to accept test files from payroll providers who are meeting the GESB SAFF data standards via Employer Online. Testing will be scheduled once GESB has received all test files from payroll providers.
We will be holding employer forums in May 2016 to release the data specification for our SuperStream system, channel B (SAFF). You will need this information to work with your payroll provider to ensure you have a compatible system in place by 1 July 2017. If you are intending to use a Channel A solution, with XBRL, please contact us directly for the specification document.
