Valuations at the Financial Year End
SMSFs are required to value all assets at Market Value at each financial year end as part of the annual compliance process. ESUPERFUND will receive the electronic data in relation to your bank and trading accounts if these accounts were set up by ESUPERFUND. However, if your SMSF holds other assets (e.g. physical metals, property and etc.) during the financial year, you are required to provide us the Market Value as at 30 June 2015 for these assets when completing the 2015 Financial Year Online Checklist.
Please follow the ATO valuation guidelines to estimate the market value.
Thank you very much. I really appreciated your client-focused support over the last few months. You always provide us the information promptly and sometimes do so beyond the call of duty. Thanks again, I am glad that I changed to ESUPERFUND and look forward to working with you in the future.
