Employers making a superannuation payment

For employers with a FirstChoice Employer Super plan, contributions should be made through FirstNet Employer.

If you are not a registered employer with Colonial First State, select from one of the above options to make a one-off payment to individual employees.

Note: All employers must pay their employees’ superannuation contributions via SuperStream. BPAY alone doesn’t meet a compliant SuperStream transaction. The money to pay superannuation contributions and data to instruct the payment must be sent electronically in a standard format to comply with SuperStream. That could be via FirstNet Employer (for employers with a FirstChoice Employer Super plan), CBA’s NetBank – in the Superannuation hub (for employers who use Essential Super), or through a SuperStream compliant payroll system or clearing house.

The Complying fund letter confirms that Colonial First State is able to receive contributions from employers.
