             (4)  If the valuation day for a superannuation entity is after 30 June 2019 and subsection (3) does not apply, the superannuation entity’s levy base is to be worked out by determining the net balance of the entity on the valuation day based on the audited accounts of the entity.

(5)   Despite subsections (2), (3) and (4), in working out a superannuation entity’s levy base, disregard the superannuation entity’s employer‑sponsor receivables.
