How to get started


Before using this tool, consider:

View the deadlines for any form or transaction to be processed by the end of financial year (EOFY). Any transaction or form not validly requested before these times will not be processed in the current financial year.

To manage what EOFY communications sent by Netwealth to you and your clients navigate via the main menu to My Business > Business Settings > Communication . Where a communication option is not greyed out, you can turn it off. This will apply to all of your clients linked to the selected adviser.

How to contribute

There are three steps when contributing to a Netwealth super account:

  • PART A: Track contributions against caps
  • PART B: Depositing contributions at tax time
  • PART C: Claim a tax deduction for contributions


PART A: Track contributions against caps

There are two reports that can help you track contributions against the concessional caps at an individual account level:

How to run this report 


PART B: Deposit contributions at tax time

To contribute into a Netwealth super account on behalf of a client:

 

a) Check that the clients direct debit bank account has been set up by selecting an account and navigating via the main menu to Client Details > Bank Settings. Make sure there is a bank account flagged with a 'standing direct debit authority'. 



b) Navigate via main menu to Transactions > Deposit and Contribute > One-Off Contribution and enter the information required.

c) Click ‘Submit’. If submitted prior to 12pm AEST, the direct debit will be received into the account overnight.

Advanced tips:

  1. If there is no bank account listed, you will need to complete the ‘direct debit request’ form and submit it online via document uploader. If you are making an urgent contribution you will need to allow for processing times. 
  2. Clients can contribute themselves via EFT, Bpay or branch deposit. Navigate to the Portfolio page and expand the section ‘How to contribute’, located about halfway down the page. Click on the link for more information on how to contribute.


PART C: Claim a tax deduction for contributions

All personal contributions are processed as non-concessional contributions until you or your client, either:

  1. Claims the tax deduction online
  2. Completes the section 290.170 Tax Notice (Netwealth will send to you and your clients in late July)

To save time and process your contribution, you can claim your tax deduction online:

a) Select a client and navigate to their holdings to check the account’s available cash balance. The account must have enough available cash to cover the tax payment if claiming online.

b) Navigate via the client menu to Transactions > Deposit and Contribute > Claim Tax Deduction.



c) Select the Financial Year that you wish to claim a deduction. A tax deduction can be claimed/varied for the last financial year and/or the current financial year.

d) Select the amount you wish to claim a tax deduction for. Either type the amount or select ‘Claim maximum deduction’.

e) Click ‘Submit’ to process the tax deduction claim.

f) Client confirmation. The client will receive a confirmation letter via their preferred method of communication confirming the return of their Section 290.170 Tax Notice for the financial year selected.

Important note: For clients transferring to income stream or withdrawing money form the platform, a tax deduction claim must be lodged prior to the transfer.

 

Claiming a tax-deduction on unused concessional contributions

From 1 July 2018, the unused portion of a client’s concessional cap is carried forward on a rolling basis of five years.

2019/20 is the first financial year in which a client may be eligible to claim a tax deduction on the unused portion of their concessional contribution cap from prior years. This is subject to the combined balance of their superannuation interests being less than $500,000 as at 30 June 2019).

Clients seeking to claim a tax deduction on unused concessional contributions need to submit a ‘notice of intent to claim’ form (via document upload, email or post). No offline transaction fee will be charged.

Going forward, we plan to enhance our online ‘Tax deduction claim’ functionality to support clients seeking to claim a tax deduction on unused concessional contributions.

How to contribute

  • PART B: Generate a tax statement

PART A: Deposit contributions at tax time

To contribute into a Netwealth investment account on behalf of a client:

PART B: Generate a tax statement for an individual client

Netwealth Wrap Taxation Statements are produced and sent in weekly batches to clients. They are also available online.

The Taxation Statement is produced once income for all assets held in the portfolio for the period have been reconciled and re-apportioned into the correct tax components (as per the advice received from registries and/or fund managers).

Netwealth ensures the Tax Statements are produced as quickly as possible, but is reliant on receiving information from registries and/or fund managers to do so.
To help track the status of tax statements and to see which assets we are yet to receive year-end tax information for (from fund managers or registries), use the pending Tax Statement tool (’Tax Tracker’).

a) Select a client account and then click on Client Details > Reports & Statements > Statements. 

b) Select one or more accounts to view. 



c) From the information displayed, you can:

  • Download past and present Tax Statements by clicking on the PDF icon
  • If the Tax Statement is awaiting final year-end tax information a ‘pending’ hyperlink will be displayed. Click on this link to view all assets awaiting information.

Advanced tip: Advisers and clients are also able to view their pending statement details on the client dashboard. By clicking on the task you will be navigated automatically to the statements tab.


PART C: Generate a list of pending Tax Statements for multiple clients at once (in bulk)

To view pending tax statements in bulk:

a) Navigate via the main menu to Reports > Adviser Reports.

b) Download the Tax Statement Tracking report, which will show: 

  • a list of all clients, and
  • the date the Tax Statement was completed or a list of the assets for which are still awaiting final year-end tax information.
