    About these instructions



    This information may not apply to the current year. Check the content carefully to ensure it is applicable to your circumstances.

    End of attention

    These instructions will help you complete the Ancillary fund return 2016 (NAT 73640).

    When we refer to the ancillary fund guidelines, we are referring to the Public ancillary fund guidelines 2011 as amended for public ancillary funds (public AFs) and the Private ancillary fund guidelines 2009 as amended for private ancillary funds (private AFs).

    When we refer to a 'fund' in these instructions, we are referring to an ancillary fund.

    When we refer to 'you' in these instructions, we are referring to you as the trustee of the ancillary fund.

    These instructions are not a guide to law on ancillary funds. They sometimes refer you to a guideline that specifically addresses an item in the return you are completing – this does not mean the guideline is all you need to consider regarding that item, or the operation of the fund.

    Note: Do not send the audit report and financial statements with the return unless you need to do so because of particular circumstances, such as winding up the fund or ceasing to be an ancillary fund.

    Penalties may be imposed for giving false or misleading information – penalties may also be imposed for non-compliance with the ancillary fund guidelines.
