Regulatory Reform Levy - charged
Over recent years, we’ve been investing in our systems and processes to support sound regulatory reform designed to build a stronger super and pension system for all Australians. Super and pension funds have invested significantly in updating their systems and processes to support this reform. We’re partially recovering some of these costs through a Regulatory Reform Levy. We will continue to carefully evaluate our regulatory reform implementation costs each year.
How the levy works
We charged a Levy of up to 0.20% on account balances of $5,000 or more (capped at a maximum of $40). If charged, the Levy will appear as ‘Admin Fee – Regulatory Reform Levy’ in the Your account transactions section of your June 2016 statement.
Please note, that if you transferred money from a Colonial First State super or pension account that was opened before 1 January 2016 into a new super or pension account after 1 January 2016, you were charged the Levy.
