The SMSF Alias lookup table is to verify the details of a self-managed super fund alias and its associated gateway.

Entities who are responsible to send contribution and rollover messages to SMSFs in the SuperStream Standard will need to access the table to ensure the SMSF alias details are correct. For example, clearing houses or other gateways providers.

Gateway Alias table

The Gateway alias table provides alias values for the current STN Gateways and must be registered by all gateways as valid alias values.

Fund validation service – final technical documents for web services in SBR2

The Message Implementation Guide and supporting documents for the FVS web services being deployed in SBR2 are now available on

The FVS will be released as a suite of web services in January 2015. However, in response to industry feedback the ATO is extending the existing process for updates and extracts from the Fund Details Register until the end of March 2015.  

Funds and employers will be able to use either the single and bulk lookup services or a full extract through the Data Transfer Facility until the existing process is decommissioned.  Funds will need to continue submitting updates for existing products or new products through the Business Portal.

From April 2015 all new products, updates to existing products and extracts of the register must be submitted through the web services.

The FVS conformance suite can be requested by emailing
