ABSIA recently engaged with the ATO on the SuperStream Alternate File Format (SAFF) incorporating SuperStream’s message implementation guides 2.0 and additional defined benefits (DB) fields. The desired outcome being that participants of SuperStream use this new combined format rather than still having separate variants of the SAFF.
Post ABSIA’s last SuperStream working group meeting on the 25th May the plan moving forward is as follows:
For more information, email email@example.com
- ATO to review analysis from DB funds about additional fields required for harmonization
- ATO to contact Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation (CSC) and other DB funds to help with Mapping to guidance
- Schedule additional working group, with parties from all impacted areas involved, to resolve any issues
- ATO to report back at ABSIA on timings and release of products
