Fund income tax return instructions 2013 will help you complete the Fund income tax return 2013 (NAT 71287). 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 and pooled superannuation trusts (PSTs) that use the Fund income tax return 2013 to meet their tax obligations. The instructions and return form may refer more generally to funds other than where more specific mention of an entity type is warranted. Where required, a separate Super member contributions statement (NAT 71334) 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 2013 (NAT 71226).
