    This section deals with other financial information that the Commissioner has determined is necessary to assess the operation of the superannuation fund.

    In this section:

    14. Foreign income and net assets

    A Attributed foreign income – listed country

    Show at A the amount of attributed foreign income from controlled foreign entities and transferor trusts in listed countries. Listed countries are set out in Regulation 19 of the Income Tax Assessment (1936 Act) Regulation 2015.

    Attributed foreign income includes the income attributed to the taxpayer from controlled foreign companies, calculated in accordance with Division 7 of Part X of the ITAA 1936, and includes amounts grossed up under section 392 of the ITAA 1936, as appropriate, to the extent of any foreign or Australian taxes paid.

    Attributed foreign income from transferor trusts is the total amount of income attributed to the taxpayer from a transferor trust that is a listed country trust estate (as defined in section 102AAE of the ITAA 1936), calculated in accordance with Subdivision D of Division 6AAA of Part III of the ITAA 1936, and reduced under paragraph 102AAU(1)(d) of the ITAA 1936, as appropriate, to the extent of any foreign or Australian taxes paid.

    C Attributed foreign income – unlisted country

    Show at C the amount of attributed foreign income from controlled foreign entities in unlisted countries.

    Unlisted countries are countries not listed in Regulation 19 of the Income Tax Assessment (1936 Act) Regulation 2015.

    Show also at C the amount of income attributed from a transferor trust if the amount has not been included at A Listed country.

    For more information about the exemptions and calculation of the amounts to be reported at A or C, see the Foreign income return form guide 2021.

    F Net assets available to pay benefits

    Show at F the total value of net assets available to pay benefits, including items such as life policies, units held in PSTs and assets funding current pension liabilities at the balance date. If the value of life policies is not known, use the total of contributions to date.

    15. Transfer of liabilities to life insurance company or pooled superannuation trust

    Has the fund, with consent of the transferee, transferred assessable contributions under section 295-260 to a life insurance company or pooled superannuation trust?

    Print X in the appropriate box at A.

    If the answer at A is Yes then print:

    • the name of the life insurance company or PST
    • the ABN of the life insurance company or PST
    • the amount of the contributions transferred to each transferee at B and D
    • the market value of the transferor’s investment in each of the transferees at C and E.

    Where there are more than two transferees, provide details of the two transferees that have the greatest market value.

    The investments of a fund or ADF in a life insurance company or PST may include items such as life insurance policies and units held in PSTs at the balance date.

    Investment in any other life insurance policies or pooled superannuation trusts

    Show at F the total market value of investments in any other life insurance policies or PSTs that have not been included above.

    For C, E and F, market value is to be given its ordinary meaning in accordance with and subject to Subdivision 960-S of the ITAA 1997.

    16. Taxation of financial arrangements (TOFA)

    Show at H and I the total assessable gains and total deductible losses made from financial arrangements under the TOFA rules (unless it was made only because the fund held a qualifying security).

    Show at H the fund’s total assessable TOFA gains from financial arrangements.

    I Total TOFA losses

    17. Overseas transaction or interest and foreign source income

    You must answer this question even if the fund has no overseas transactions or interests.

    International related party dealings and transfer pricing

    A Did the fund have any transactions or dealings with international related parties, irrespective of whether they were on revenue or capital account?

    Print X in the appropriate box.

    International related parties are associated entities or persons, including permanent establishments, who are parties to international (that is, cross border) dealings which may be subject to:

    • Subdivision 815-B or 815-C of the ITAA 1997
    • the business profits article of a relevant tax treaty, or
    • the associated enterprises article of a relevant tax treaty.

    International related parties include:

    • any overseas entity or person who participates directly or indirectly in the fund’s management, control or capital
    • any overseas entity or person in respect of which the fund participates directly or indirectly in the management, control or capital
    • any overseas entity or person in respect of which persons who participate directly or indirectly in its management, control or capital are the same persons who participate directly or indirectly in the fund’s management, control or capital
    • a permanent establishment and its head office
    • two permanent establishments of the same person.

    ‘Participates’ includes a right of participation, the exercise of which is contingent on an agreed event occurring. ‘Person’ has the same meaning as in subsection 6(1) of the ITAA 1936 and section 995-1 of the ITAA 1997.

    The type of dealings or transactions that will require the fund to select Yes at this question are dealings by the entity with international related parties as mentioned above, such as an overseas holding company, overseas subsidiary, overseas permanent establishment of the entity, or non-resident trust in which the entity has an interest.

    These international dealings or transactions may be for the provision or receipt of services, or transactions in which money or property has been sent out of Australia, or received in Australia from an overseas source during the income year. The dealings may also include transfers of tangible or intangible property, provision or receipt of services, or the provision or receipt of loans or financial services.

    If money or property is not actually sent out of Australia or received in Australia, but accounting entries are made that have the effect of money or property being transferred, this is also to be taken as an international transaction.

    B Was the aggregate amount of the transactions or dealings with international related parties (including the value of property transferred or the balance outstanding on any loans) greater than $2 million?

    Print X in the appropriate box.

    The aggregate amount of the dealings is the total amount of all dealings, whether on revenue or capital account, and includes the balance of any loans or borrowings outstanding with international related parties.

    Transactions must not be netted off against each other. Hence, a $600,000 purchase from, and a $700,000 sale to, a related party should be treated as totalling $1,300,000 not $100,000.

    Overseas interests

    C Did the fund have an overseas branch or a direct or indirect interest in a foreign trust, foreign company, controlled foreign entity or transferor trust?

    Print X in the appropriate box.

    An interest in a controlled foreign company or trust may be either direct or indirect, and is taken to have the same meaning as set out in Division 3 Part X of the ITAA 1936.

    A fund has an interest in a transferor trust if it has ever made, or caused to be made, a transfer of property (including money) or services to a non-resident trust. ‘Transfer’, ‘property’ and ‘services’ are defined in section 102AAB of the ITAA 1936. Sections 102AAJ and 102AAK of the ITAA 1936 provide guidance in relation to whether there has been a transfer or deemed transfer of property or services to a non-resident trust.

    Foreign source income

    D Was the amount of foreign income tax paid greater than $100,000 OR was the amount of assessable foreign income greater than $500,000?

    Print X in the appropriate box.

    Assessable foreign income is all assessable income sourced from overseas, and includes interest, dividends, attributable income through the controlled foreign company (CFC) regime, and foreign-sourced capital gains.

    For more information on foreign sourced capital gains, see:
