    Instructions

    Who should complete this statement?

    You should complete the member contributions statement (MCS) if you are a super provider or an authorised supplier of member contributions information.

    Use the MCS to report any contributions received for members who were either:

    • members at the end of the financial year
    • members only at some time during the financial year but were paid one or more superannuation benefits during that year, other than rollover benefits.

    Similarly, report on this MCS contributions received during the year by the provider as part of a rollover superannuation benefit and reported to the provider at question 15 on a Rollover benefits statement by the transferor provider.

    Attention

    Contributions must be accounted for on a receipts basis. Contributions made after the end of the financial year can only be reported on the MCS lodged for the next financial year.

    Do not lodge an MCS if there are no contributions to report for a member in the financial year. However, note that contributions rolled over from a transferor provider will trigger an obligation to lodge an MCS for the destination provider.

    Providers may need to lodge an MCS to report any contributions made for a temporary resident member, even for the financial year in which that member’s benefits were paid to us as unclaimed following a super fund receiving a temporary resident notification. for MCS reporting purposes, these payments are not treated as rollovers or transfers to us but as benefit payments to the member.

    End of attention

    Amendments

    You also use this statement to amend an MCS you have already lodged. You have a legal obligation to correct material errors or omissions within 30 days by lodging an amended MCS. The amended MCS entirely replaces the original MCS. When you prepare an amended MCS, you must be sure to:

    • use exactly the same account number (question 29), identifier number (question 30) and financial year (question 10) that you used in the original MCS
    • indicate this is an amendment at question 20 (note that if your account and identifier numbers don’t match those on the original MCS, completing this question alone will not be sufficient)
    • complete all the questions exactly as you completed them in the original, apart from those questions you are amending.

    If you have lodged an MCS in error and want that original MCS to be disregarded, prepare an amended MCS for the same account number and identifier number that reports zero amounts at all the contributions questions (sections E and F).

    Example

    Nero Super fund lodges an MCS with account number ‘123’ reporting employer contributions of $50,000. (It does not use a client identifier number and always leaves that question blank.) The fund later finds that employer contributions of only $5,000 were received. It seeks to amend, but does so incorrectly by giving account number ‘124’ reporting employer contributions of $5,000.

    The Tax Office treats both of the MCS lodgments as originals as they have different account numbers. The member concerned is queried by the Tax Office as having exceeded the concessional contributions cap, with employer contributions totalling $55,000 ($50,000 contributed to one account and $5,000 contributed to another account). The member asks Nero Super fund to correct what it has reported to the Tax Office.

    Nero Super fund now needs to lodge two amended MCS forms. The first is to amend the first MCS it lodged, by giving account number 123 and employer contributions of $5,000. The second is to amend the next MCS it lodged so that it is disregarded, by giving account number 124 and zero employer contributions.

    End of attention
    Who is the ‘provider’?

    The obligation to report is imposed by the legislation upon a superannuation provider for a particular superannuation plan. The definition of ‘provider’ in the legislation is therefore:

    • for a superannuation fund, the trustee of the fund
    • for an approved deposit fund (ADF), the trustee of the fund
    • for a retirement savings account (RSA), the RSA provider.

    However, as is the convention in other Tax Office forms, the term ‘provider’ is used in this document to refer to the particular super fund, ADF or RSA that details are being reported for, rather than to the trustee or RSA provider with the obligation to report them.

    Some super funds have registered a name with us that includes a reference to the fund’s trustee (for example, ‘Trustee for XYZ Super fund’). It is this registered name that should be reported as the name of the provider.

    Attention

    The provider name reported must correspond to the ABN and TFN reported at questions 12 and 13.

    End of attention

    Question 10

    Financial year

    Provide the financial year within which the contributions being reported were made to the provider. Give the year in which the financial year ends.

    For example, if information is being lodged in October 2009 for contributions made between 1 July 2008 to 30 June 2009, this field would be 2009.

    Attention

    You must complete a separate MCS for each financial year you are reporting.

    End of attention

    Question 11

    What is the supplier’s relationship with the provider?

    Complete by placing the applicable code in the box provided. If you are both the provider and supplier report code A, then go to question 20.

    F – A financial planning practice

    I – An industry administrator

    L – A liquidator or provisional liquidator of this provider

    R – A retail administrator

    S – A specialist firm, consultancy or life insurance office

    T – A tax agent

    U – An actuarial administrator

    W – A controller or administrator (as defined for the purposes of the corporations law) X – The trustee of a bankrupt estate or the trustee of a deed under Part IX or Part X of the Bankruptcy Act 1966.

    Attention

    • not being permitted to accept other contributions, such as personal contributions by, and super co-contributions for, the member.

    In addition, providers may be required, by a notice issued by us, to return certain member contributions where the correct TFN has not been quoted by the member.

    Complete this by writing X in the applicable box.

    Question 27

    Date of birth

    Provide the member’s day, month and year of birth, if known. Write 0 in any part of the date of birth which is unknown – for example, where you know the member was born in February 1975, but you do not know on what day, record their date of birth as 00/02/1975.

    Question 29

    Account number

    Provide the number used to identify your member’s account.

    You must allocate an account number to all members. The account number may be made up of letters, numbers or a combination of both.

    Attention

    When lodging an amended MCS, you must use the same account number and provider client identifier for the member as the one you used on their original MCS.

    The provider member account number, together with the provider client identifier, must uniquely identify a member’s account with the provider. You cannot recycle account numbers that were previously used for another member.

    End of attention

    Question 30

    Identifier number

    Provide the member identifier used to link member accounts within the organisation. For example, the client identifier may be a customer number which is used to link five different accounts held by one member with the provider. You can leave this blank if the member’s account number is the unique number you identify them with.

    Question 31

    Does the member’s account accept super co-contributions?

    Complete this by writing X in the applicable box. The account may accept super co-contributions if:

    • the member is a current member of the fund
    • the account is not a pension account or income stream account
    • the super provider holds the member’s TFN, if the co-contributions are in relation to personal contributions made from 1 July 2007.

    Question 32

    Date account was opened

    Provide the date that contributions began to be paid into, or otherwise attributed or credited to, the member’s account with the provider.

    If the date the account was opened is unknown, but the provider can determine that the account was opened:

    • before 7 May 1997, show this date as 1 January 1900
    • on or after 7 May 1997 and before 1 July 2007, show this date as 30 June 2007.

    Question 33

    Account status

    Complete by writing X in the applicable box. This indicates whether contributions can currently be accepted by the member’s account with the provider.

    The status can be either:

    • active – the member’s account is active and will accept payments from us
    • closed – the member’s account, including one in pension phase, is closed and will not accept payments from us.

    Section E: Member contribution amounts

    Attention

    Where there is no contribution amount to report at a particular question, write a single zero at that question.

    Do not include any amounts received as a result of contributions splitting.

    End of attention
    Reporting transferred contributions

    The following explains some of the particular obligations that arise when contributions are rolled over or transferred between providers.

    Attention

    When we issue a temporary resident notification asking a provider to pay us the unclaimed benefits it holds for a former temporary resident, the payment is not a ‘rollover superannuation benefit’. For MCS purposes, providers must account for these payments as if they were benefit payments made to the member, not as transfers. The provider therefore has an obligation to lodge an MCS for that member for the financial year in which the payment is made if contributions were made for the member in that year.

    End of attention
    Transfers in 2007–08 to 2011–12 financial years

    Transferor providers who roll over or transfer all or part of the contributions received for a member to another provider during that financial year do not report the contributions received on their MCS. Instead, they report them to that destination provider on a Rollover benefits statement (NAT 70944) within seven days of the transfer occurring.

    The destination provider is then required to lodge an MCS for the member to report those contributions reported to it by the transferor provider. This remains so when no direct contributions can be received after the initial rollover by the fund (for example, pension funds).

    The destination provider must report the contributions reported to it, regardless of the amount received or the amount in the member’s account when the MCS is prepared.

    Example 1

    For example, $10,000 is contributed for a member to provider A within the 2007–08 financial year. However, due to fees and poor investment returns, only $9,900 is rolled over near the end of that year to provider B. Provider A reports the full $10,000 contribution to provider B on the Rollover benefits statement and, despite the application of further entry fees, it is this amount that provider B reports on the MCS it lodges for the member, rather than the current balance of the member’s account.

    In the case of a partial transfer, any contributions for the financial year that the transferor provider does not intend to report on its MCS are to be reported to the destination provider on the Rollover benefits statement. The transferor provider must apportion the partial transfer reporting between the two involved providers.

    A destination provider may be responsible for reporting rolled over contributions in their MCS, even where it does not receive the rollover payment until the following financial year.

    Example 2

    For example, on 29 June 2009 provider A (the transferor provider) transferred a rollover benefit that included contributions made during the 2008–09 financial year to provider b (the destination provider). Although provider b does not receive the rollover benefit and the accompanying Rollover benefits statement until 2 July 2009, it is required to report the contributions on its 2009 MCS.

    Question 34

    Employer contributed amount

    Provide the amount of contributions made by an employer on behalf of the member to an accumulation or defined benefit fund.

    Include:

    • employer contributions made to an accumulation account on behalf of members to meet super guarantee, award or other obligations
    • contributions paid as a result of a salary sacrifice arrangement, where the member has agreed to forgo part of their future salary or wages in return for their employer providing a super benefit of a similar value
    • amounts reported at question 15a on a Rollover benefits statement (NAT 70944) received from a transferor provider
    • superannuation guarantee charge and the taxable component of any superannuation holding accounts special account amounts that we transferred to the provider on behalf of the member
    • notional taxed contributions for a defined benefit account.

    Do not include:

    • contributions made by an employer from the take-home (after tax) pay of the member (these are reported at question 35)
    • a directed termination payment that an employer pays to a super provider on behalf of a member
    • last-minute employer contributions that the trustee of a public sector super scheme chooses to exclude from its assessable income (these are reported at question 45)
    • employer contributions made to a constitutionally protected fund (CPF) (these are reported at question 45).
    Attention

    CPFs should only include amounts at this question if a rollover was received and employer contributions made to another provider were reported to the CPF at question 15a on a Rollover benefits statement.

    End of attention

    Additional requirements for defined benefit funds

    The notional taxed contributions amount for a defined benefit fund must be determined in accordance with the legislation (including Income Tax Assessment regulations 292-170.02 to 292-170.06).

    The notional taxed contributions amount for a defined benefit account is generally equal to the actuarial value of the notional taxed contributions plus the concessional contributions cap for the financial year. However, a transitional provision applies if your member held their defined benefit account on 5 September 2006 and certain other conditions are satisfied.

    Under this transitional arrangement, if the notional taxed contributions determined with advice from an actuary exceed the concessional contributions cap for the financial year, then you must report the amount of your member’s notional taxed contribution as being equal to the cap.

    Question 35

    Personal contributed amount

    Provide the amount of personal contributions made by a member to an account in their own name, including both deducted and undeducted member contributions. Include:

    • personal contributions made by an employer for and on behalf of the member from the member’s take-home (after tax) pay
    • personal contributions a member has made to the provider on their own behalf, including those the member has or has not claimed or can or cannot claim as a tax deduction
    • a transfer from another fund following the release of a member’s benefits under terminal medical condition provisions (that cannot be treated as a rollover superannuation benefit during the period of certification)
    • amounts reported at question 15b on a Rollover benefits statement (NAT 70944) received from a transferor provider.

    Do not include:

    • any personal contributions arising from a personal injury payment that are reported at question 37
    • any personal contributions relating to capital gains that are reported at question 36 n directed termination payments n rollover super benefits, other than those contributions reported at question 15b on the Rollover benefits statement (NAT 70944)
    • super lump sum amounts from a foreign super fund or scheme
    • contributions made by the member’s spouse, other family members or friends.

Include amounts reported at question 15h on a Rollover benefits statement (NAT 70944) received from a transferor provider.

    Attention

    Do not include any amounts the provider may include in their assessable income under subsection 295-200(2) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997, when the member makes a choice in relation to certain investment earnings of the foreign fund or scheme that accrued while the member was an Australian resident (this amount is only reported at question 45).

    Question 42

    Non-assessable foreign fund amount

    Provide any part of the amount transferred to the provider from a foreign super fund or scheme that the provider is not required to include in their assessable income.

    A part of a super lump sum transferred from a foreign super fund or scheme is not included in the non-assessable income of the fund where the member has chosen to have an amount included in the fund’s assessable income.

    Include amounts reported at question 15i on a Rollover benefits statement (NAT 70944) received from a transferor provider.

    The following is an example with all amounts in the Australian currency equivalent.

    Example

    David had $50,000 in an overseas super fund when he became an Australian resident. Four years later, the earnings on the fund were $8,000, giving a total balance of $58,000. David chooses to have the $8,000 included in the assessable income of the provider.

    David transfers $60,000 to an Australian superannuation provider ($2,000 more than the amount vested in him at the time of the transfer).

    The provider lodges an MCS that reports the following amounts:

    • $50,000 at question 42 Non-assessable foreign fund amount
    • $2,000 at question 41 Assessable foreign fund amount
    • $60,000 (includes the $8,000) at question 45 All contributions received for the current year.

    Question 43

    Transferred from reserves amounts

    Provide amounts transferred from reserves.

    Include:

    • assessable amounts transferred from reserves
    • non-assessable amounts transferred from reserves
    • amounts reported at question 15j on a Rollover benefits statement (NAT 70944) received from a transferor provider.
    Attention

    For more information about the amount, refer to regulation 292-25.01 of the Income Tax Assessment Regulations 1997.

    End of attention

    Assessable amounts

    Provide the amount that the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 includes as a concessional contribution because an amount was allocated to the member’s account from a reserve. The amount included by the legislation, and so reported here, may be greater than the amount actually allocated to the member’s account.

    Non-assessable amounts

    Provide the amount that the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 treats as a non-concessional contribution because an amount was allocated to the member’s account from a reserve and not included as assessable income of the fund.

    Question 44

    Contributions made to a previously non-complying fund

    Provide the amount of all contributions made on or after 10 May 2006 to a provider that was a non-complying super fund but which became a complying fund during the financial year this MCS relates to.

    Question 45

    All contributions received for the current year

    Attention

    You must report members’ contributions received prior to any reduction in the amount of contributions following the lodgment of a release authority.

    End of attention

    Provide the total contributed amount received for, credited to or otherwise attributed to the member’s account for the relevant financial year before any taxes or expenses are debited from the member’s account.

    Include:

    • contributions reported at all other questions n amounts reported at question 15k on a Rollover benefits statement (NAT 70944) received from a transferor provider
    • other contributions received for the member but not reported at any other question, such as  
      • employer contributions made to a CPF
      • co-contributions received by the provider for the member
      • the tax-free component of a directed termination payment
      • the amount that a member has chosen to have included in the fund’s assessable income from a lump sum super benefit transferred from a foreign super fund or scheme
      • last-minute employer contributions that the trustee of a public sector super scheme has chosen not to include in assessable income
      • FHSA contributions received with the Super contributions from a first home saver account (NAT 72537) and government FHSA contributions via a remittance advice on your MCS.
       

    Do not include:

    • contributions received by the fund in excess of the cap and returned within 30 days of the fund becoming aware of the excess
    • contributions returned because the fund did not hold the member’s TFN
    • amounts received from the account of a member’s spouse and credited to the member’s account because of a contributions splitting application or a contributions split ordered by a court. These amounts are regarded as transferred benefits rather than contributions.
    Attention

    Do not include an amount received on behalf of a spouse as a result of a contribution splitting application.

    The amount reported at question 45 must be equal to or greater than the sum of the amounts reported at questions 34 to 44.
