Most printing companies are small-to-medium businesses with less than 20 employees. Meeting regulatory requirements can often present these companies with challenges, especially when it comes to superannuation.

For small employers with less than 20 employees, the deadline for becoming SuperStream compliant was 30 June 2016 and all contributions must now be made electronically with linked data and payments.

MediaSuper’s clearing house, MercerSpectrum, is now available to any printing employer, no matter how big or small, making it easier for you to meet your employer obligations. And the best thing? It’s FREE for you to use*.

On the other hand, if you are a medium to large employer with 20 or more employees, the ATO announced that from 1 November last year they are focusing on employers who have been identified as non-compliant with SuperStream.

If you still haven’t made the transition, don’t leave it any longer – call 1300 721 408 and a dedicated project manager will assist you in becoming SuperStream compliant today.
