Once you have filled in all the details, you can then click submit. Your registration will be submitted and if successful, you will be ready to start making super payments through ClickSuper
Registering Multiple Employing Entities
If the separate entity has the same ABN you just need to go to this employing entity page in your business settings and click on the link within to enable ClickSuper for that entity.
During this process you will be asked to enter a branch code for this Click account and all of the details that you did for the original Click registration.
Then, once this is done, when you want to create a super batch you will need to decide which entity you want to create the batch for then it will be uploaded into the appropriate Click account for payment.
If this entity has a different ABN the same applies but you won't have to select a branch code, because it will be a separate Click account.
