• Table 3: Contribution flows

    These tables show the total value of contributions to SMSFs during each financial year and the mean and median amounts over those periods, along with contributions by fund size.

    These figures are estimates based on SMSF annual return form data. To ensure consistency, the total contributions figures used are those reported in the Self-managed super fund statistical report, June 2014.
