SECTION 106A   DUTY TO NOTIFY COMMISSIONER OF TAXATION OF CHANGE IN STATUS OF ENTITY  

106A(1)   Trustee ' s duty to notify Commissioner of Taxation.  

If a trustee of a superannuation entity:

the trustee must ensure that a written notice is given to the Commissioner of Taxation.

A trustee of a fund that was already a self managed superannuation fund when a trustee, or the trustees, of the fund made an election under section 19 does not have to ensure that a notice is given to the Commissioner of Taxation at that time, because the fund became a self managed superannuation fund before (not since) becoming a superannuation entity.

Note 2:

Section 166 imposes an administrative penalty for a contravention of subsection (1) in relation to a self managed superannuation fund.

106A(2)   Timing of notice.  

A notice under subsection (1) must be given as soon as practicable, and not later than 21 days, after the trustee first has knowledge that the superannuation fund has ceased to be, or has become, a self managed superannuation fund.

106A(3)   Offence.  

A person who contravenes subsection (1) commits an offence punishable on conviction by a fine not exceeding 100 penalty units.
