    Notes:

    1. This report includes determinations of entitlements made during the quarter in respect of the last two financial years and the total of the 2014–15 and earlier years. A determination of entitlement occurs once both an individual’s eligibility and the amount of their entitlement have been established.
    2. Where a beneficiary receives super co-contribution entitlements relating to different financial years the beneficiary is reported once for each financial year.
    3. Where a super co-contribution entitlement represents an additional entitlement for a beneficiary in respect of a financial year, that beneficiary is not reported again.
    4. The total amount recovered includes amounts repaid to the Commissioner and amounts (new entitlements) offset against unrecovered overpayments (that is, reduced entitlements for a different year). A reduced entitlement, and thus the need to recover amounts, can result from an amendment to an individual’s income tax assessment or a change to the superannuation contributions reported for that individual.
    5. The total of component amounts of super co-contribution entitlements determined and the total amount recovered are rounded up to the next whole $1,000. This rounding can result in the total amount being different to the sum of the components.
