can i claim any super annuation -loss- in an Australia Tax Office (ATO) tax return? if so, what section please?
The answer is no.
A superannuation fund will have it's own tax return, and any net loses during a financial year will be carried forward to offset superannuation gains in future income years.
If you have a SMSF, then the SMSF will have to complete and lodge its own tax return.
