Register for automated super payments

If your Xero plan includes automated super payments, register for auto super to send your employees' super contributions electronically from your registered account to their nominated super funds (regulated and self-managed).

How it works

  • Your pricing plan needs to include auto super before you register. It's easy to change your plan if you're not.
  • You need to add some employees to payroll in Xero before you can set up auto super.
  • After the nominated authoriser approves super payments, our third party super clearing house takes the money from your bank account as a direct debit. Payments approved on, or before 4pm, each day will be sent to the various super funds within 2 business days. Each super fund will then allocate contributions to member accounts.
