  • S Closing account balance



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

    End of attention

    Write at S the member’s account balance at 30 June 2015. If the member's closing account balance is zero or a negative amount, write 0 (zero) at S. To work out the member’s closing account balance at 30 June 2015:

    • add        
      • Opening account balance (at 1 July 2014)
      • N Total contributions
      • O Allocated earnings and losses (if the amount is positive)
      • P Inward rollovers and transfers
    • and then subtract        
      • O Allocated earnings and losses (if the amount is a loss)
      • Q Outward rollovers and transfers
      • R1 Lump sum payments
      • R2 Income stream payments.

    If a member has multiple accounts, you should have combined them so that each member has only one statement in either Section F or Section G.

    Example: Calculating Closing account balance

    This example is for an SMSF with a single member. In such a case, all the SMSF's expenses are allocated to the member.
