  • Latest improvements to ATO online

    The March IT system release has improved the experience for fund members using ATO online to manage their super. Individuals (and their authorised representatives) can see more of their contribution data, with ATO online fund transactions and employer contributions screens now displaying more contribution types, including:

    • employer contributions made to defined benefit funds (notional taxed contributions and defined benefit employer contributions)
    • non-employer contributions such as personal contributions.

    The fund transactions screen now displays all contribution types reported via the Member account transaction service (MATS) and the employer contributions screen includes notional taxed and defined benefit employer contributions.

    Additionally, the employer contributions screen now displays contributions from past financial years (2018–19 onwards), allowing users to track their contributions over a longer period. Previously, this screen only displayed current year contributions.

    Another improvement is that limited recourse borrowing arrangement (LRBA) amounts are now displayed on the total super balance (TSB) screen. This could affect individuals who are members of a self-managed super fund (SMSF) and an Australian prudential regulation authority (APRA) fund. SMSF members affected by recent law changes no longer need to manually calculate these amounts. Previously, the TSB displayed on ATO online may not have been correct, especially where a member was required to include an outstanding amount of an LRBA in the SMSF annual return.
