Practice Update April 2024

Reminder of March 2024 Quarter Superannuation Guarantee (‘SG’)

Employers are reminded that employee super contributions for the 1 January 2024 to 31 March 2024 quarter must be received by the relevant super funds by 28 April 2024 (which is a Sunday), in order to avoid being liable to pay the SG charge.

Prepare for upcoming lodgments of SMSF annual returns

SMSFs need to appoint an auditor no later than 45 days before they lodge their SMSF annual return (‘SAR’).

In preparation for lodgment of the SAR, SMSF trustees also need to:

  • complete a market valuation of all the SMSF’s assets;
  • prepare the SMSF’s financial statements; and
  • provide signed copies of documents to their auditor, so the auditor can determine the SMSF’s financial position and its compliance with superannuation laws.

If an SMSF’s SAR is more than two week’s overdue, and the SMSF trustee has not contacted the ATO, the ATO will change the status of the SMSF on Super Fund Lookup to ‘Regulation details removed’, and this status will remain until any overdue lodgments are brought up to date.
