  • Super changes receive royal assent

    Changes to the superannuation system announced by the government in the May 2016 Budget have received royal assent. Many of these changes affect self-managed super funds (SMSFs).

    An overview of the super changes for SMSFs is available and more detailed information is being progressively published to help you understand the changes and how they may affect you as a trustee of a SMSF.

    We will also be placing information on our Let’s TalkExternal Link superannuation community page where we encourage you to register to participate in online discussions, or register your interest to follow activities specific to SMSFs.

    We will work with trustees and advisors to provide any necessary information about changes to the way SMSFs are managed.

    Keep informed about updates

    The Super changes for self-managed super funds page will be updated as we progress the administration of the changes within the super system.

    You can keep up to date by either:

    • regularly checking What’s new
    • visiting SMSF News
    • subscribing to our alert service to receive an email or RSS feed alert. Make sure you select ‘Super’ in the subscription choices.

    Note: The subscription service is currently being upgraded and will be available again from 17 December 2016.
