New Features

  1. Transfer Balance Account Report (TBAR) Lodgement

If an SMSF member has a pre-existing income stream, it must be reported to the ATO on the TBAR on or before 1 July 2018. A pre-existing income stream is an income stream the member was receiving on 30 June 2017 that:

    • continued to be paid to them on or after 1 July 2017; and
    • are in the retirement phase.

The Simple Fund 360 TBAR Management Screen allows you to prepare this information to easily lodge to the ATO.

Can we have the monthly update notes posted to SF360 help as well? That way I can download a proper pdf version of the update and distribute it for our internal meetings.

Hi @LeonKP, we have this month’s new release notes posted here:

Hi @Steve_R That page only has a link back to here. And it says future release notes will be uploaded to the community. So I still can’t generate a pdf for today’s release note.

Hi, could we get a PDF version of the release so I can send around to colleagues?

Would also be good to have it on the Help page where it usually is, easier to access and view.


Hey BGL great release I have just lodged my TBAR.

Just also wanted to point out that you can print to PDF from your browser.
