Government and regulator interaction

Prior to the recent election the Coalition Government announced that it would, in response to industry advocacy, reconsider the scope of the non-arm’s length income/expenditure (NALI/NALE) rules and their impact on large APRA regulated superannuation funds.

In May ASFA advocated directly to the ATO Commissioner of Taxation seeking an extension of its no-action position, with the ATO acknowledging the need to deal with the matter expeditiously post-election, including a potential extension to relief in advance of legislative certainty.

Research and submissions

ASFA has provided a submission to APRA in response to the recent discussion paper on the Superannuation Data Transformation Project. ASFA acknowledges the value that additional data can provide however has called out the need for the data to be ‘fit for purpose’. ASFA has also called out the need for a Phase 1 Post Implementation Review and for sufficient time for funds to bed down processes. The submission recommended commons data standards, taxonomies, and definitions to apply when reporting to different agencies to help keep compliance costs to a minimum.
