2. Checklist FAQs
Q: My SMSF was set up in the 2014 Financial Year and up untill 30 June 2014 there are no assets or transactions in my Fund, do I still need to fill in the checklist?
A: Yes you are still required to complete the checklist in order for our office to lodge a Return Not Required Notification with the Australian Taxation Office.
Q: Will you lodge my tax return immediately after I submit my checklist?
A: No as it takes time for our office to review and process the checklist on a first-come first-served basis. You will be notified by our office once we have completed the accounts for you or if we require further information from you in order to complete the accounts.
Q: Can I update or change the information after I submit the checklist?
A: No you cannot change or update the information in the checklist by yourself once you submit the checklist. Should you wish to change or update the details in the checklist, please email our office and we will update the information in our system.
Q: Will you pay the tax liability on my behalf?
A: No ESUPERFUND is not authorised to make any tax payment on your behalf. The tax liability and payment method information is detailed in the income tax notification which is included in the 2014 FY compliance documents. You can view the compliance documents upon completion via the Client Portal.

Online Calculator has been updated
We have updated our online calculators to take into account the new Superannuation rates and thresholds applying from 1 July 2014. You can now enter your own unique details and our Interactive Analyser will provide a detailed analysis assisting you to determine what Strategies you can incorporate with your SMSF. This level of Interactive assistance would cost thousands of dollars with a Financial Planner but is provided absolutely FREE to clients of ESUPERFUND.
