We accept payments via clearing houses.

Please be aware that QSuper can't accept cheques, BPay or direct deposits for Employer contributions.

A superannuation clearing house is a kind of one-stop-shop for making superannuation payments in a single transaction. It's simple to use, and it can save you a lot of time and money by simplifying your admin and back office processes. Importantly, most clearing houses can pay into QSuper.

One of the benefits of a clearing house is that many of the payment steps are automated – so there are generally fewer errors. Your accounts are reconciled and your payment history is summarised for you too – so you can easily keep track of everything. In many cases, clearing houses provide payroll services as well.

Before you select a Clearing House you should check how long the contributions will take to be received by your employees’ superannuation funds.

Choosing a clearing house

Here are some of the key things to consider when making a decision about which clearing house to go with.

  • The payroll software you’re using – Some payroll software packages (such as MYOB) may have a built-in clearing house option. If you’re not sure whether your payroll software has a clearing house option, contact your provider.
  • How many employees you have – Some clearing houses deal specifically with small businesses, while others deal with businesses of all sizes. The government provides a free clearing house service (creatively named the Small Business Superannuation Clearing House) specifically for businesses with fewer than 20 employees.
  • The clearing house fee structure – Clearing house fees can vary a lot (from nothing at all to individual charges per contribution). Before choosing a clearing house, it’s best to discuss the fee structure with the individual providers.

Am I using a clearing house already?

You might be, particularly if you’re already paying your super online. The best way to find out is to contact your service provider.

Feel free to have a read through our Statement of Compliance. It confirms our status as a complying superannuation fund under the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993.
