    Small Business Superannuation Clearing House (SBSCH)

    The SBSCH is a service for businesses with 19 or fewer employees, or those that have an annual aggregated turnover of less than $10 million.

    Users must have the correct permissions set by their Administrator in Access Manager.

    Super guarantee contributions can be made as a single electronic payment to the SBSCH. It will then distribute the payments to each employee's super fund.

    Before payments can be made, the client will need to be registered to use the SBSCH.

    Tax practitioners can:

    • add and update client details
    • submit payment instructions and make payments
    • register clients as new users of the SBSCH.

    New features include:

    • a change of SBSCH bank account details
      • the new details are available on the Payment options screen when completing a Payment instruction
      • make sure you update any saved BPAY payment references in your internet banking or other banking services
    • the ability to save and manage multiple draft payment instructions – however you can only submit them one at a time
    • a sort function on employee listings.

    Note: BAS Agents can only use the BAS Agent Portal for clients who have an ABN, they cannot access the SBSCH for their clients who have a WPN. You can call us on 1300 660 048 and we can process your transaction manually.
