ATO defers lodgement date of SMSFs for 2016-17 financial year
24 January 2018
The new deadline for lodging 2016-17 self managed superannuation fund (SMSF) returns is 30 June 2018. With this date falling on a Saturday it means they can be made on the next business day, 2 July, without penalty.
The extended lodgement timeframe means that all SMSFs eligible for transitional CGT relief as a result of the $1.6 million transfer balance cap will have additional time to consider and make relevant elections before lodging their annual returns.
