Note

BGL do not provide accounting or taxation advice. The following is designed to act as a guide for Simple Fund 360 users. It is not designed to be accounting or tax advice and should not be taken as a strict guideline. Other methods that are more suitable may be used instead of these steps.

Scenario


In this example, the fund has two members.

John Jones has both a Pension account and an Accumulation account. John's pension balance is over the $1.6m cap. The excess amount will be commuted to John's existing accumulation account.

Mary Jones has a Pension account and the balance is over the $1.6m cap. The excess amount will be cashed out.

Step 1: Fund Processing 


This does not change from previous years.

  1. Ensure all transactions have been matched or have been entered in for 2016/2017.

  2. Enter all transactions which affect the Cost base for 2016/2017 e.g. Tax Deferred Distributions, Depreciation, Dividend Reinvestments and other Corporate Actions.

  3. All assets should have a Market Value as at 30/06/2017 (or CGT reset date if applicable).

Step 2: CGT Relief (if applicable) 


Determine if the fund is eligible for CGT relief. If not, go to Step 3.

  1. Unsegregated funds should apply for a Draft Actuarial Certificate and/or ensure the draft actuarial percentage has been entered in Fund Pension Policies screen for the 2016/17 Financial Year. This is to ensure the correct decisions are made when selecting which assets to apply relief to.  

    The Actuarial Percentage received from the Actuary is 93% which has been entered in the Fund Pension Policies screen for the 2016/17 Financial Year.

  2. Enter CGT Reset Transactions and complete CGT Reset Documentation.

Step 3: Comply with Transfer Balance Cap as at 30 June 2017


Before processing the commutation, Create Entries until 30/06/2017 to reflect updated Market values.

 Step 4: Finalise Fund 


  1. Unsegregated funds need to apply for a FINAL Actuarial Certificate. This application will include all commutations made during the financial year including those made on 30/06/2017.  In this scenario, the actuarial percentage has changed from 93% to 90%. The policy needs to be updated with the new percentage in the Fund Pension Policies screen for the 2016/17 Financial Year.


  2. You will then need to reverse the last Create Entries and then Create Entries again to update the Tax Return and Allocations.

    If the Actuarial Percentage has not changed from Step 2, there is no need to reverse the last Create Entries.

  3. Complete Fund Review ready for Audit.
