Tax reports and elections

Tax reports

The timing of completion of a tax report is dependent on when we receive the tax information from product issuers. The first tranche will generally be made available by the end of July and subsequent tranches are then sent in the following months as we receive this information.

Why will some of my clients receive their tax reports later than others? 

All fund components need to be finalised and processed for an account before the tax report can be issued.

To help you manage your client expectations around the availability of their tax reports, we’ve reached out to fund managers and requested an indication of when they can provide us their annual tax components.

The Product Issuer Schedule for the FY22/23 tax year is available here. You can also find the Product Issuer Schedule for the FY21/22 tax year available here.

The below key will help you navigate the schedule:

  • Outstanding – The platform hasn’t received fund tax reports. If the fund hasn’t provided information by the expected date, we’ll follow them up regularly. We’ll also notify you via email and on the investment menu news page if we’re informed by the fund manager of any material changes to the expected date.
  • Received – The platform is processing fund tax reports and are reconciling to individual accounts. (On average, this process generally takes around two weeks).
  • Audit – To provide assurance around the accuracy of your client’s tax report, KPMG conduct an independent audit to ensure they remain consistent with the assumptions and principles outlined in the tax guide. They are also responsible for agreeing that the information reported is consistent with the information we have on file. (On average, this process generally takes around one week).
  • Finalised – All tax components for this fund have been finalised. (On average, this process generally takes around one week).
