Migrate data from an existing fund

When we refer to Migration Start Year, we are referring to the year before you will start recording your transactions in Mclowd. For example, you decide to use Mclowd from 1 July 2019 (2019/20 income year). Your migration start year is the year ending 30 June 2019 (prior year).

To migrate data for an existing Fund, you will need to have on hand from your Migration Start Year:

  • A copy of Financials of the Fund as at 30 June [prior year]
  • ABN and TFN of the Fund
  • Name and ACN of the Corporate Trustee (if applicable)
  • SMSF auditor of the fund
  • Names and TFNs of all members
  • Copies of Member Statements detailing components as at 30 June [prior year].
  • A copy of the Income Tax Return for the Fund [prior year]
  • If you wish to record Income and Expenses for the year prior to Migration (for comparison purposes), your Trial Balance or General Ledger report for that year
  • Historical summary of investments, including:
    – The number of units/shares held as at 30 June [prior year]
    – Purchase cost of units/shares held as at 30 June [prior year]
    – The balance of the Dividend Reinvestment program (DRPs) for any investments held as at 30 June [prior year]
    – Bank reconciliation as at 30 June for all accounts [prior year]
    – Loan reconciliation for any loans to the fund
    – Loan reconciliation for any asset loans the fund has extended
    – Earlier years trade debtors/creditors breakdown
    – Listing of Receivables with total of DRPs balances as at 30 June [prior year]
    – Tax Payable Reconciliation as at 30 June [prior year] including SMSF annual levy
