Circular 15/22 Annual Returns – Submission reminder

Thank you to the sub-Branches that have already submitted the 2021 Annual Return Form.

As per the RSL NSW Constitution, the SBA Form for every RSL NSW sub-Branch must be lodged with ANZAC House by 31 March. If your sub-Branch has not commenced or completed the 2021 SBA, please do so as soon as possible or contact the Support Team if you need an extension of time to submit.

The 2021 Annual Return form must be completed electronically via the sub-Branch Portal, with no requirement for them to be emailed or posted to ANZAC House.

To date only 63 SBA Forms have been completed in their entirety and submitted via the Portal and the remainder are in ‘Draft’ status which indicates that some fields have not been completed or the form has not been successfully submitted. When you are satisfied that the Form has been completed, select the date and the ‘submit’ button on the final page to ensure that the Form has been successfully submitted.

Some sub-Branches have contacted ANZAC House regarding progressing the Form on Page 13. To move forward the ‘Net Assets’ field should equal the ‘Total Equity & Retained Earnings’ field which is the sum of the ‘Revaluation Reserve (Unrealised Gains/ Losses)’ + ‘Retained Surplus/(Accumulated Losses)’, which is also explained in the instructional video which can be viewed by clicking here.

A PDF copy of the completed SBA can be generated as a print copy for the sub-Branch records.

If you require assistance to log into the sub-Branch Portal to complete the Form and the various fields, or generating a copy of the Form, please contact the Support Team via email on or phone 1300 679 775.
