• Flow of funds table ($m)

    This table shows estimates of the total amount of 'flows' into and out of SMSFs during each financial year. It contains totals relating to the following:

    • contributions - member, employer and other
    • transfers - inward and outward
    • benefits payments
    • operating costs - administration and investment expenses and other expenses.
    Attention

    Note that the SMSF annual return does not contain the same expense labels as previous returns. We are currently investigating how to report SMSF operating expenses for the 2008 financial year onwards.

    End of attention

    These figures are estimates based on SMSF income tax and regulatory return form data for the 2004 to 2007 financial years and SMSF annual return data for the 2008 to 2011 financial years. The data was extracted on 12 July 2012.
