Avoid delays or unexpected tax implications
Keep an eye on available cash
Check your clients’ available cash account balances (including the minimum cash balance requirements) and any automatic cash plans before submitting withdrawal or rollover requests to avoid any processing delays.
Check your client’s residency status
It’s important to know that your clients’ residency status could affect the accuracy of their tax reporting. If your client was a non-resident in the 2019/20 financial year, or if they’re now an Australian resident, we must receive updated residency information by 10 July to ensure it’s reflected in the 2020 tax report. You can access the Change of residency form here.
Check the Super Contribution type for direct deposits
If your client intends to contribute via EFT to their super account, please check the direct deposit facility is set up with the correct contribution type. If you need to change the contribution type, just give us a call.
Supply all relevant cost base information
Provide any outstanding cost base information for assets transferred into Wrap accounts to ensure the account is ready for tax reporting. Incorrect or incomplete cost base information can impact the accuracy of reporting.
Make contributions in the right financial year
It’s important that contributions are counted towards the right financial year. Please make sure contributions are made by the cut-off date so they can be counted towards the 2019/20 financial year.
If your client intends to contribute for the 2020/21 financial year, please make sure the contribution is sent on or after 1 July 2020.
