We want to ensure the run towards 30 June is as smooth as possible for you and your clients. 

Below you’ll find some key dates and information, so you have everything you need in the one place.


Wrap tax elections are now open


If you have Wrap investment clients, you have until 7 July to make your tax elections online for 2019/20 tax reports.

This allows you to customise upcoming tax reports and make choices about CGT reporting and adviser fee deductions for your clients’ tax reports. Tax reports are available online and we’ll send an email to you and your clients once their tax report is available to view/download.

The tax report notification is sent via email only, so please ensure your client’s email addresses are up-to-date. If your client doesn’t have an email on file, please encourage them to update their details so that they can receive a notification.

Your clients can easily update their email address online via online.macquarie.com.au

If you’d like more information about tax elections, go to Adviser Help Centre and view the Wrap Tax category.

Tips to avoid processing delays

  • Check your client’s available cash
    Before submitting withdrawal or rollover requests, check the available cash for your clients to avoid any processing delays.
  • Ensure sufficient cash is available in your clients’ pension accounts
    This is to make sure pension payments can be made in June to satisfy any minimum pension requirements for the 2019/20 financial year.  
  • Check your super clients direct deposit facility
    Please make sure we can receive and process contributions correctly that are paid by funds transfer by checking your client’s direct deposit facility. If your client intends to make a contribution via EFT to a super account, it’s important the direct deposit facility is set up with the correct contribution type. You can change the contribution type by calling us.
  • Ensure your investment clients’ accounts are ready for tax reporting
    Please check correct cost base information is supplied where assets are being transferred in, to ensure accounts are ready for tax reporting. Incorrect or incomplete cost base information can impact the accuracy of reporting. Check you can supply all relevant cost base information to provide this for assets transferred into wrap accounts.
  • Submit paperwork as early as possible
    If you’re able to submit paperwork before the provided cut-off dates, there’ll be a greater chance that we can work with you to resolve any unexpected issues before the final cut-off dates.
  • Wherever possible, use Request Centre
    Alternatively, please use email to avoid any possible delays with postal delivery.
  • Check that paperwork is completed correctly before uploading it to Request Centre or emailing it to us
    Ensure that all forms and documents are fully completed and signed by the correct signatories to reduce the risk of any delays in processing.
