27 Feb 12 Reporting regulatory information in the SMSF annual return
The ATO advises agents that the responses to each question in the regulatory information section (section J) in the Self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) annual return should align with those provided by the approved auditor in the audit report.
Agents and their clients should pay particular attention to labels:
- G (arm's length investments)
- M (separation of assets) as information has been identified as being incorrectly reported in the past.
Incorrect responses to these questions could lead to unnecessary compliance activity from the ATO.
