Medicare Clearing House
Small Business Superannuation Clearing House
What is it?
The Australian Government is offering a free online clearing house service to small businesses with fewer than 20 employees. The Small Business Superannuation Clearing House (the Clearing House) is designed to reduce the red tape and compliance costs for small business when meeting their superannuation guarantee obligations. As part of these obligations, businesses may need to make superannuation contributions into numerous different superannuation funds. This process can be time-consuming and result in increased admin costs.
How it works?
The Clearing House is administered by Medicare Australia and lets small businesses pay superannuation contributions to a single location.
Employers can register their employees' superannuation fund details and superannuation contributions with the Clearing House for processing. The Clearing House will then distribute the super contributions to relevant funds.
NGS Super is registered with Medicare to receive any contributions from employers sent through the Clearing House.
