Personal transfer balance caps displayed from 11 July 2023


On 1 July 2023, the general transfer balance cap will be indexed. Individuals will have a personal transfer balance cap between $1.6 and $1.9 million based on the highest ever balance of their transfer balance account between 1 July 2017 and 30 June 2023.

When will the ATO display the indexed amount?

While indexation will occur on 1 July 2023, the ATO won’t be displaying member’s personal transfer balance caps until 11 July 2023.

From 11 July:

To ensure member’s personal transfer balance cap calculations are based on correct and up to date information, the ATO encourages funds to report any events that occurred prior to 1 July 2023 by 30 June 2023.

Reporting between 1 and 11 July 2023

You can continue to report transfer balance cap information to the ATO between 1 and 11 July 2023 however, they will not be processing reporting during this period.

This means the ATO won’t be able to issue or revoke:

  • excess transfer balance determinations they have sent to a member
  • commutation authorities they have sent to a fund.

Please continue to respond as normal to commutation authorities during this period.

For more information see Indexation of the general transfer balance cap.
