If you have your own clearing house or payroll system, you can use it to process contributions. Basically, all your employees’ super info gets consolidated into one list, and once you've paid, the Clearing House takes care of distributing the payments to all the different super funds.
Just a heads up - to make sure your contributions are all above board, they need to follow the SuperStream standard and regulations. These require you as employers to:
provide minimum mandatory data required to allocate a contribution
send all data and contribution payments electronically
link data and money with a unique payment reference number
ensure data and payments are sent on the same day
respond to fund requests for complete information within 10 business days
For more info, check out the ATO website - they've got all the details you need!
