ASIC proposes to temporarily extend relief from disclosure and reporting consistency obligations for super trustees

Section 29QC of the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (SIS Act) requires that information given to the public (e.g. in disclosure documents) be calculated in the same way that the information is reported to the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) under an APRA reporting standard. ASIC Class Order [CO 14/541] provides relief from section 29QC of the SIS Act.

ASIC proposes to extend the exemption in [CO 14/541] for a period of two years until 1 January 2026. This means RSE licensees (superannuation trustees) would continue to be exempt from complying with disclosure obligations set out in subsection 29QC(1) of the SIS Act.
