Reporting Form SRF 703.0
Fees Disclosed
Instructions
These instructions assist completion of Reporting Form SRF 703.0 Fees Disclosed (SRF 703.0). SRF 703.0 collects information related to fees and costs that are required to be disclosed on a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS). Information reported in SRF 703.0 is required primarily for prudential and publication purposes and for the purposes of section 348A of the SIS Act. Information reported in SRF 703.0 is also required for the purposes of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
Reporting level
SRF 703.0 must be completed for each MySuper product.   
Reporting basis and unit of measurement
Report all items on SRF 703.0 in accordance with the Australian Accounting Standards unless otherwise specified.
Where an RSE licensee is reporting an accrued amount, valuation of the accrual must be in accordance with the Australian Accounting Standards.
Items on SRF 703.0 must be reported as at the reporting day.
Items on SRF 703.0 are to be reported as dollars and cents on a per member basis, percentages or whole numbers. Report percentages as whole numbers to two decimal places. For example, 10 per cent is to be reported as 10.00.
Report percentages as percentages of the assets adjusted for cash flows as they occur (i.e. time-weighted), unless otherwise specified. Cash flows include, but are not limited to, contributions, switches, transfers, rollovers or benefit payments.
Items on SRF 703.0 are to be reported on a non-look-through basis or a look-through basis. ‘Look-through basis’ refers to fees and costs being reported that relate to service providers that are not directly engaged by the RSE licensee, but are engaged by other service providers.
These instructions specify the reporting basis, look-through basis and unit of measurement that applies to each item.
Specific instructions
Terms highlighted in bold italics indicate that the definition is provided in these instructions.
For the purposes of these instructions, a ‘fee’ is an amount directly charged to members (regardless of who pays the fee) and a ‘cost’ is an amount incurred by the RSE licensee. The definitions of ‘fee’ and ‘cost’ are mutually exclusive.
For the purposes of these instructions, fees and costs must be reported ‘gross of tax obligations’. This means the fees and costs must be reported prior to taking into account any benefit of a tax deduction relating to a fee that is passed on to a member either as a reduction in tax on contributions or through the deduction of a fee that is lower than what is reported to take account of the tax deduction.

The fee charging bases are: ‘per annum’, ‘per activity’ and ‘not applicable’.
