27 Feb 14 Super confusion?

MEMBER 14 writes in some confusion:

"Information from the ATO states that 'All super funds, including SMSFs, must receive [superannuation] contributions in the new standard from 1 July 2014". However, the ATO also states that 'All small employers (with less than 20 employees) must use the standard for sending contributions from 1 July 2015, subject to further consultation'.

http://www.ato.gov.au/Super/Data-standards/In-detail/What-you-need-to-know/SMSFs/SMSFs---the-SuperStream-standard-for-contributions/

So, if SMSFs must receive contributions under the new standards from 1.7.2014 but small employers don’t have to send them under the new standards till 1.7.2015 – how does

that work?

I’m not familiar with it all yet but that doesn’t seem as though it will work."
