About these instructions

Fund income tax instructions 2010 will help you complete the Fund income tax return 2010. The instructions also cover:

  • the schedules you must complete and attach to the tax return
  • record-keeping requirements.

When we refer to 'you' in these instructions, we are referring to you either as the trustee of the fund or as the tax agent or trustee responsible for completing the tax return. This publication is not a guide to income tax or superannuation law. Seek help from us or a registered tax adviser if this publication does not fully cover the fund's circumstances.

These instructions cover only Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) regulated and non-regulated superannuation funds that use the Fund income tax return 2010 to meet their tax obligations. Where required, a separate Super member contributions statement must be lodged with us.

Self-managed superannuation funds need to meet their tax and regulatory obligations by lodging the Self-managed superannuation fund annual return 2010.
