April 2018 sees the newest release of SuperMate, version 4.2.3a. Within this release are a number of enhancements including:
A new automated data feed is available from Asgard for their wrap platform. A new master chart account has been added to cater for this new automated data feed. There is also a new cash account available where the option to use an external cash account for a wrap has been selected. Before you add the above platform accounts to your fund/portfolio, you need to understand the two different styles of detailed platform assets that are suitable for this load, i.e. external cash or internal cash. Please refer to the release notes for this information.
SuperMate has updated the calculation for determining the value of existing capped defined benefit income streams for transfer balance account purposes. It is now based on a daily equivalent of the selected amount rather than the annual selected amount. SuperMate is still the only SMSF administration platform that can facilitate bulk lodgement of TBAR data files via the ATO portal and that can calculate the special value of capped defined benefit income stream in the TBAR data file. Other platforms will require external calculation of the special value and manual entry of the calculated value to populate the TBAR.
A new CGT date field has been added to transaction entry screens for purchases and the Effective Date field has been renamed to Tran Date.
SuperMate has now increased the number of decimal places from 2 to 4 for DRP units via certain transaction entry screens in Transaction Centre.
SuperMate has introduced the concept of demerger relief, as in some cases the ATO may determine that a restructure that is referred to as a ‘demerger’ does not meet the requirements of a ‘demerger for tax purposes’. Demergers are now processed in a similar way to a return of capital, which prevents a tax-exempt revenue transaction from being created.
There have been many enhancements made to workflows including:
There have been several enhancements to SuperMate's Data Audit Wizards (DAWs), including a new DAW profile for pension review, checking for outstanding missing information and whether the fund has a trust deed stored in the Document Management System.
