Purpose

2.             Information collected in Form SRF 330.0 Statement of Financial Performance (SRF 330.0) is used by APRA for the purposes of prudential supervision and publication. It may also be used by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

Application and commencement

3.             This Reporting Standard applies to each registrable superannuation entity (RSE) licensee (RSE licensee) in respect of each RSE, defined benefit RSE, pooled superannuation trust (PST) and eligible rollover fund (ERF) within its business operations.[1]

4.             This Reporting Standard applies for reporting periods ending on or after 1 July 2017.

Information required

5.             An RSE licensee to which this Reporting Standard applies must provide APRA with the information required by SRF 330.0 in respect of each reporting period.

Forms and method of submission

6.             The information required by this Reporting Standard must be given to APRA in electronic format using the ‘Direct to APRA’ application or, where ‘Direct to APRA’ is not available, by a method notified by APRA, in writing, prior to submission.

Note: the ‘Direct to APRA’ application software (also known as ‘D2A’) may be obtained from APRA.

Reporting periods and due dates

7.             Subject to paragraph 8, an RSE licensee to which this Reporting Standard applies must provide the information required by this Reporting Standard in respect of each RSE, defined benefit RSE, PST or ERF within its business operations (the entity), for:

(a)           each quarter based on the year of income of the entity; and

(b)          each year of income of the entity.

8.             If, having regard to the particular circumstances of an RSE, defined benefit RSE, PST or ERF, APRA considers it necessary or desirable to obtain information more or less frequently than as provided by paragraph 7(a) or 7(b), APRA may, by notice in writing, change the reporting periods for the particular RSE, defined benefit RSE, PST or ERF.

Quality control

11.         The information provided by an RSE licensee under this Reporting Standard must be the product of systems, procedures and internal controls that have been reviewed and tested by the RSE auditor of the RSE, defined benefit RSE, PST or ERF to which the information relates.[3] This will require the RSE auditor to review and test the RSE licensee’s systems, procedures and internal controls designed to enable the RSE licensee to report reliable information to APRA.

14.         An RSE licensee must ensure that information identified as being provided solely for the purposes of the ABS is as accurate as possible.
