An SMSF's ABN can be deemed unregulated by the ATO in the event the SMSF fails to lodge their returns, which can cause the SMSF's ABN to not appear as valid or may result in errors when employers try to pay to the SMSF.
Common errors for invalid SMSF's include: Regulation Details Removed
Target Fund ABN cannot receive superannuation payments for more information see http://superfundlookup.gov.au
This error means you cannot pay to this SMSF as per the date of the error and you will need to wait for the SMSF to fix the issue or remove them from the superannuation payment batch and repay them at a later date. If repaying at a later date is not an option, the employer can opt to use their default fund to disperse the payment to the employee if the employer needs to meet their super obligations.
The ATO provides in depth information about how the SMSF can rectify their unregulated status for more information and instructions visit http://superfundlookup.gov.au and enter the SMSF's ABN into the search menu to locate the status and solutions the ATO provides.
