Overview


BGL has integrated with CommSec Retail Services where CommSec provides BGL with a daily data feed. There is no charge for this service. Authority needs to be granted to BGL to utilise this service in Simple Fund 360. For more information on Commsec for SMSFs, click here.

 The following information is imported through the data feed:

  • Investment movements (purchases and disposals)
  • Cash transactions are not imported through the Retail feed. A separate source such as the BGL Bank Data Service can be used to import the bank data. 


Historical Data Available?

CommSec Retail will send though historical balances (which will be used in the Balance Review Screen). Transaction history will not be available.

How will transactions be coded?

Investment transactions will be allocated to the correct account in Simple Fund 360. For purchases of new investments not previously held by the fund, new accounts will be created and transactions will be automatically allocated.

 

Which transactions will be matched? 

Investment transactions (purchases and disposals) will be automatically matched to their corresponding Cash transactions by Simple Fund 360 if they are being loaded through a bank feed such as the BGL Bank Data Service

  6. Authority must be granted before the CommSec Retail feed can commence. Please email Commsec Retail authority form to CommSecTechSupport@cba.com.au. Authority form can be obtained during setup within SF360.


  7. Select Save. This step will need to be completed for each fund that will be using the CommSec feed in Simple Fund 360. 

    If you receive the message "bank account already has a bank feed operating" the bank account selected in step 5 is already being used under another bank feed such as Xero, Macquarie or the BGL Bank Data Service. You will need to edit this bank account through the Bank Feed Management Screen and change the Feed Provider to None.
