How to update the Cruelty Free Super USI and ABN

From February 25, 2022, the Cruelty Free Super USI and ABN will change.
It is important that your employees’ records are updated to ensure their super guarantee payments can be processed successfully. Contributions made to the old USI and ABN will bounce from March 7, 2022.
These are the details to make super payments to Cruelty Free Super:
USI/SPIN: 34 300 938 877 010
ABN: 34 300 938 877
Fund name: Cruelty Free Super
Phone number: 1300 096 631

How to update your employee’s super details

If you are making a super payment to a Cruelty Free Super member after March 7, 2022 you need to use the new USI (34 300 938 877 010) and ABN (34 300 938 877).
If an employee accrued super for a period prior to March 7, 2022, but it wasn’t paid until after March 7, 2022, if you use the old ABN and USI, the payment will bounce.
All employers must pay super contributions through a method that meets the SuperStream rules.

Why do I need to update the USI and ABN for Cruelty Free Super?

On March 7, 2022, Cruelty Free Super will change master trusts, becoming part of the Tidswell Master Superannuation Plan. When this happens, the USI and ABN for the super fund change.
SuperStream uses a super fund’s USI and ABN to identify the super fund. This means if an employee’s super guarantee payment is paid to the old USI and ABN, the fund won’t be recognised and the payment will bounce.
To ensure that future super guarantee payments are paid by the quarterly deadlines, it is important to update employees’ super records for members of Cruelty Free Super.

When do I need to make the update by?

The new USI and ABN are valid from February 25, 2022. The old ABN and USI will stop working on March 7, 2022. We recommend that you update the ABN and USI as soon as possible from February 25.
The next quarter deadline for super guarantee payments is April 28, 2022.

Where can I find my employee’s Cruelty Free Super member number?

Your employee’s member number has not changed. This means it should still be on their employee record.
If you require this again, the member has been emailed a copy of their pre-filled super choice form that they can provide you.

Can I pay by EFT?

No. Employers need to use a SuperStream compliant system to make super payments. This allows you to make multiple super payments to different funds, with just one transfer. It also sends the payment with data about the payment, e.g. we can see that a $1,500 employer super contribution for Jane Smith is made up of $1,000 in superannuation guarantee contributions and $500 in salary sacrifice contributions.

Do I need an employer number with Cruelty Free Super?

No. You don’t need to be registered with us in order to make a payment. Just leave that field blank. Cruelty Free Super is no MySuper authorised.

I’m still having issues, who can I contact?

If you are having troubles setting up or updating the ABN and USI on your payroll software, we recommend that you contact the software provider directly. They will have the technical expertise to guide you.
