The draft instrument amends the Superannuation Data and Payment Standards 2012 (F2016C01040) (F2016C01040) (the Standard) by extending its application to include:
The Standard sets out the minimum requirements for payments and information relating to certain transactions within the superannuation system. Trustees are required to deal with payments and information in the manner specified in the Standard to comply with their obligations in Pt 3B of the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993.
The amendments bring rollovers and transfers of superannuation relating to SMSFs and release authority requests into the SuperStream framework. The draft instrument also repeals provisions relating to historical transitional arrangements.
