We’ve seen a lot of changes to super with the introduction of the new legislation. Given this, it was only inevitable that the ATO would introduce a new system to track compliance.
While the ATO is making a point of calling this new system an “events based reporting” system, let’s just call it what it is, a push for real time reporting. Whilst technically not everyone has to move to real time reporting for their SMSFs, you could incur penalties and miss out on tax savings if you choose not to.

In our opinion, the only way anyone with an SMSF can meet these time frames is to move to the real time reporting system.
At businessDEPOT we have been recommending real time reporting for our clients for the last few years. We’ve seen the below benefits for all of our clients that have taken it up so far:
With the introduction of these new reporting requirements, we can see benefits continuing to increase, because lets face it – everyone is time poor, and no one wants to be tied down to such strict reporting conditions to access their own money in retirement.
You have until 1 July 2018 to be fully ready for this system, however we recommend you take the opportunity to get on board early, so you can make the most of your super opportunities now.
