HFB Super – End Of Financial Year Summary

Transfer Balance Account Reporting (TBAR)

Funds that were paying a pension during 2018-19 will need to complete and lodge a Transfer Balance Account report with the ATO. The date of when you have to report depends on the size of your superannuation balance.

Events that need to be reported are:

  • Details of any new retirement phase pensions (value and type)
  • Details of any death benefit income streams
  • Details of lump sum payments from your income stream

What is not reported:

  • Pension payments
  • Investment earnings / losses
  • When a pension account ceases because all monies have been exhausted
  • Death of a member

TBAR: When do you have to report:

Super Balance Less than $1m – when the annual return is due for lodgement*

Super Balance More than $1m – 28 days after the end of the quarter in which the event occurs

It is expected that all reporting will become at least quarterly, including where a Super Balance is less than $1m, which is why the real-time processing is essential in ensuring your Fund is compliant.   Where we have the information, we have been reporting all events on a quarterly basis, irrespective of the Total Superannuation Balance.

*All members balances must be under $1m in order to fall under the annual reporting regime.

We regularly provide information seminars and networking sessions for local businesses and business people.

All of our seminars are hosted in our office boardroom, and refreshments are provided.
