Draft Amendments to the Corporations Regulations 2001 to Support the Simplified Superannuation Reforms

The Minister for Revenue and Assistant Treasurer, Peter Dutton, today released for public comment further draft regulations supporting the Simplified Superannuation reforms.

The draft regulations also propose minor amendments to the Corporations Regulations 2001 to update references and superannuation terminology as a result of the Simplified Superannuation reforms.
