2014 Annual Member Statements have been sent to members, so don’t forget to arrange your NESS Super workplace visit for 2015.

The 2014 Annual Member Statements, covering the transaction period 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014, were sent to members in late October 2014. This means that your employees, who are NESS Super members, may have questions about their NESS Super membership or super in general.

As part of NESS Super’s personalised services, we can assist with a NESS Super workplace or worksite visit and an employee briefing session. The session provides your employees, whether they are NESS Super members or not, with the ideal opportunity to ask any super related questions. Best of all, it is a great way to keep your employees informed and up-to-date. The timing of the briefing session can be tailored to meet your workplace or worksite requirements.

ATO reminders to employers

The Australian Tax Office (ATO) has recently sent employers reminders about their super obligations and the new SuperStream requirements for employers. In summary:

  • Super Guarantee (SG) minimum rate increased to 9.5% 

It’s important to make sure that you are paying the right amount to avoid the SG Charge and penalties that may be applied by the ATO. So, if you haven not yet updated your minimum SG payment amount, please update to 9.5% from 9.25%, effective from 1 July 2014.

  • SuperStream requirements for employers

The Data and Payment Standard “SuperStream” requirements for employers are coming into force over the coming months. As a reminder

  • Medium to large employers (having 20 or more employees) must have the new requirements in place by 1 July 2015.
  • Smaller employers (having 19 or less employees) must have the new requirements in place by 1 July 2016.

NESS Super can help employers meet the SuperStream requirements with our Clearing House solution, SCH Online. See the NESS Super Clearing House article below for further information.

  • Updated Superannuation (Super) Standard Choice Form

The Super Standard Choice Form has recently been updated by the ATO for the new SuperStream requirements for employers. Please note that this form replaces forms previously issued by the ATO.

You can access and download the latest Super Standard Choice Form (with NESS Super details pre-completed), from the NESS Super website. Please CLICK HERE to download the latest Super Standard Choice Form.

Considering a Clearing House solution to meet the new Government SuperStream requirements? NESS Super is here to help… 

NESS Super is offering participating employers a super clearing house solution to help meet the new Government requirements, via the SCH Online facility.

EmployerAccess dashboard

SCH Online is available now and allows NESS Super participating employers the ability to make payments to multiple per funds (in addition to NESS Super) from a single secure website and is an integrated enhancement of NESS Super’s “EmployerAccess” online payment facility. It is an efficient and easy way to take the stress out of paying into multiple super funds.

NESS Super is offering participating employers a super clearing house solution to help meet the new Government requirements, via the SCH Online facility. 

In addition, NESS Super participating employers who consider utilising SCH Online for their superannuation payments may also be able to have the applicable SCH Online fees (or a portion of the applicable fees) paid by NESS Super.

In order for NESS Super to consider paying the applicable SCH Online fees, a NESS Super participating employer must: 

  • have 20 or more employees and

  • nominate NESS Super as their employer nominated/default fund and

  • have 50% or more employees as NESS Super members and

  • make either monthly or quarterly superannuation payments to NESS Super and any other super fund.

If you’re an employer with less than 20 employees, there are no employee contribution fees and only a minimal transaction fee applicable.
