About Super Fund LookupVersion: 7.2
What is Super Fund Lookup?
Super Fund Lookup contains publicly available information about all super funds that have an Australian Business Number (ABN). It includes those funds regulated by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) and the ATO.
You can use Super Fund Lookup to:
- identify the complying status of a fund
- view contact details for the fund.
Super Fund Lookup is used by APRA funds to check whether a Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF) is eligible to receive transfers or rollovers.
Note: There may be some funds that do not have an ABN but are complying. If you cannot find a fund, contact the ATO on 13 10 20 to verify the fund's details.
Why does Super Fund Lookup provide detailed address information?
Under the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 , a fund's address details can be displayed on Super Fund Lookup.
Address information is used to facilitate rollover requests between funds and to enable members of the public to contact the SMSF.
The A New Tax System (Australian Business Number) Act 1999 specifies other types of information that can be made publicly available, including the:
- name of the entity
- business or trade names the entity is known by
- ABN status of the entity
- postcode and state where the main business activity of the entity is undertaken.
What if I can't locate my super fund on Super Fund Lookup?
A fund will not be displayed on Super Fund Lookup if it:
- does not have an ABN, or
- has been removed from being displayed by the regulator.
Super funds that existed before the introduction of the ABN may not have an ABN and therefore will not be listed on Super Fund Lookup. These funds can register for an ABN on the Australian Business Register (ABR) .
A super fund that is regulated by the ATO may be removed from being displayed in Super Fund Lookup if the ATO has any concerns about the fund's regulatory or complying status.
What impact does a cancelled ABN have on a super fund?
If a super fund does not have an active ABN, it may no longer be operating.
It is not recommended that rollovers be made to funds that have a cancelled ABN without contacting the regulator.
If you receive a rollover request for an SMSF with a cancelled ABN, contact the ATO on 13 10 20 to find out whether the fund is a regulated SMSF and is eligible to receive rollover amounts.
