Division 2 - Determination of applications for financial assistance  


231(1)   [Minister's determination]  

If, after considering the application, any additional information given by a trustee of the fund, and APRA's advice under section 230A , the Minister is satisfied that the fund has suffered an eligible loss as mentioned in subsection 229(1) , the Minister is to determine in writing:

(a) whether the public interest requires that a grant of financial assistance should be made to a trustee of the fund for the purposes of restoring the loss; and

(b) if so, the amount of the assistance.

Financial assistance payable to a trustee of a fund is to be paid in such amounts, at such times, and in such manner, as the Minister determines.

231(3)   [ Self managed superannuation funds]

The Consolidated Revenue Fund is appropriated for the purposes of making payments of financial assistance granted under this section.
