(3)  There shall be credited to such an employer reserve the contributions made by the employer or employers to whom the reserve relates and the Commonwealth co-contributions paid to STC in respect of an employee of an employer or employers to whom the reserve relates.
(4)  There shall be debited to such an employer reserve:
(a)  the amount of any benefit paid to, or in relation to, an employee who, immediately before the benefit became payable, was an employee of the employer or an employer to whom the reserve relates, and
(b)  administration costs incurred by STC under the Superannuation Administration Act 1996 in relation to the employer or an employer to whom the reserve relates, and
(c)  the whole or part (as determined by STC) of an amount arising under the family law superannuation legislation or Part 4D that is paid to, or in respect of, a spouse or former spouse of an employee or former employee who, immediately before the payment, was an employee or former employee of the employer or an employer to whom the reserve relates.
(4A)  Despite any other provision of this Act, there is to be debited to the Crown employer reserve such amount of the administration costs incurred by STC in respect of the transfer of a preserved benefit under Part 4B as is approved by the Treasurer.
(4B)  There may be debited to such an employer reserve:
(a)  the costs incurred by STC in relation to Commonwealth co-contributions paid in respect of an employee of an employer or employers to whom the reserve relates, and
(b)  any amount payable as a debt due to the Commonwealth under the Superannuation (Government Co-contribution for Low Income Earners) Act 2003 of the Commonwealth in respect of an employee of an employer or employers to whom the reserve relates.
