03 Oct 2019 How long does it take the ATO to process a new SMSF application?
It can take up to 28 days for the ATO to review a new SMSF application.
During this review period, the SMSF’s status will initially be displayed on Super Fund Lookup (SFLU) as ‘Election to be regulated is being processed’. The status of applications that give the ATO no concerns will then be updated to ‘Registered’. SMSFs will then be able to accept contributions and rollovers.
Use Super Fund Lookup to find out the current status of your registration. More information can be found here.
