ATO News: Changes to when the notice of compliance issues

From early March 2019, the timeframe for new self-managed super funds (SMSFs) to become 'Complying' on Super Fund LookupExternal Link (SFLU) will be shorter.

Several days after registration, the fund will appear on SFLU as 'Registered – status not determined'. A few days later, the notice of compliance will issue and change the fund's status to 'Complying'.

Previously, the change in status occurred when the fund lodged its first SMSF annual return. The shorter timeframe eliminates confusion about the status of the fund or its ability to accept employer super guarantee contributions or rollovers from another fund.

This change will also impact SMSFs with a current status of 'Registered – status not determined'.
