Client mailings

We send the following client communications in July each year:
  • Annual pension review letters and PAYG summaries (if applicable)

Your clients' annual pension review letters include their annual pension amount for the 2019-2020 financial year based on their estimated account balance as at 1 July 2019 and instructions for changing their pension amount and/or frequency. PAYG payment summary and tax offset details may also be included where pension payments contained taxable income.

New pension payment amounts are calculated on 1 July, so you can view your clients' pension payment details for the 2019-2020 financial year on the AdviserNET 'Pension details' screen (Accounts>Account enquiry>Pension details).

Clients can also view their new pension payment details on Investor Online. You can quickly and easily make changes to your clients' pension payment details via the AdviserNET 'Change account details' screen (Transacting>Account options>Change account details). The last date for requesting changes to your clients' pension details (before the first payment is made in the new financial year) is 12 July 2019.  

You can find sample letters and forms under Adviser guides and resources.

  • Personal Super Contributions Deduction notices 

We send our end of financial year Personal Super Contributions Deduction Notices to clients who made personal contributions to their super account during the 2018-2019 financial year. They include the amount of their personal contributions received during the financial year remaining in their fund, important information (including eligibility criteria) to help them claim a tax deduction and a 'Notice of intent to claim or vary a deduction for personal super contributions' form.

They'll also receive our 'Completing your Notice of intent' flyer below, with handy tips to help them complete the form, if required.

Tax Report look-up tool

Use our Tax Report look-up tool see if or when a client's Tax Report is available and who it was sent to.

Our Tax Report look-up tool will be updated in July

Please note: The tool changed slightly last year. In order to further protect your clients' information and meet security requirements, results will show their Investor Number but not their Investor Name. We apologise for any inconvenience.   

About eStatements

E-statements are easily-accessed, fast, secure and environmentally-friendly. Clients who select Online as their preference for reports and information will receive an eStatement notification email when their Investor Report and any accompanying information is available on Investor Online. We won't mail a paper Investor Report. They'll still get other reports, statements and letters by mail.

Full terms and conditions for eStatements and online communications are available.

Registration

Clients can register for eStatements and online communication:

  • themselves, via Investor Online at Accounts > Manage my account > Change account details
  • with your help, via AdviserNET at Transacting > Account options > Change account details > Reporting Preferences screen or during the Account Application process
  • by calling 1800 998 185 - one of our consultants can assist.

Please note - if a client hasn't already provided a valid email address, they'll need to update their account details with one.

Account action (AAA) emails and reporting - When your clients change their reporting preference, we'll send you an account action email notification.

Income distributions and tax components tracker – what we have/haven’t received

To help you manage your clients’ queries and expectations, our ‘Income distributions and tax components tracker’ spreadsheet shows you the income distributions and tax components we’ve already received from fund managers and what’s outstanding.

We’ll update the spreadsheet weekly. 

About income distributions

The majority of income distributions are reconciled and processed in July. However, some fund managers may not make payments until significantly later and this can delay some clients' distribution payments.

About Tax Reports

To produce Tax Reports we rely on the receipt of tax components from the fund manager or share registry of every managed fund or share a client was invested in during the financial year. We anticipate sending our first tranche of Tax Reports on Wednesday 24 July 2019.

AMIT regime

We expect the majority of managed investment funds will opt in to the Attribution Managed Investment Trust (AMIT) regime in this current financial year. For information relating to the tax consequences for clients who hold investments in these funds, please refer to the Asgard Tax Guide.
