  • It's not a Self Managed Super fund, but through an AMP broker. I can log into my super account at the AMP's website.

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.
