2 Agenda What is a contribution? When is a contribution made? In-Specie transfer of assets Contribution caps Contribution strategies How can we help?
3 What is a Contribution? Not defined in legislation or regulations. From Taxation Ruling TR 2010/1: A contribution is anything of value that increases the capital of a superannuation fund provided by a person whose purpose is to benefit one or more particular members of the fund or all of the members in general. Importantly a person s purpose must be to increase the capital of a fund. As a general rule a contribution is made when received by the fund.
4 Types of Contributions Concessional Contributions These are made from money that has yet to be taxed. The main examples are employer contributions (Superannuation Guarantee and salary sacrifice). Personal deductible contributions (self-employed or someone without employer support). Concessional contributions are capped at $30,000 pa for under 50. Age 50 or over the cap is $35,000 pa.
5 Types of Contributions Non-Concessional Contributions These are made from money that has already been taxed. The main examples are personal super contributions for which no tax deduction is claimed. Annual cap is $180,000 or $540,000 using the bring-forward provisions. If aged under 65 at any time in the financial year can use the bring-forward provisions even after turning 65. If more than the relevant cap contributed in a single amount the excess must be refunded.
6 Types of Contributions CGT-exempt Contributions These are eligible contributions for small business owners. Available on the disposal of an active business asset. These contributions are capped at $1.355 million for the 15-year exemption. $500,000 for the retirement exemption. Separate from the non-concessional cap, but are considered tax-free components.
7 Who can Contribute? Mandated Employer if you work for an employer that is required to contribute on your behalf under law, an award or industrial agreement. Such contributions would include the Superannuation Guarantee (SG). There is no age limit for the Superannuation Guarantee (SG). Voluntary Employer and salary sacrifice if you are under 65 and employed or between 65 and 74 and satisfy the work test (40 hours in a 30-day consecutive period). These contributions cease 28 days after the 75 th Birthday.
8 Who can Contribute? Personal deductible if you: Are eligible to make personal super contributions (see above). Earn less than 10% of your income from eligible employment. Complete a valid Notice of Intent and receive an acknowledgement from the fund Trustee. These contributions cease 28 days after the 75 th Birthday.
9 Who can Contribute? Personal if you: Are Under 65. Between 65 and 74 and have been gainfully employed for at least 40 hours over a period of 30 consecutive days during the financial year in which the contributions are to be made. If less than 65 on 1 July in a financial year can use the bring-forward provisions after the age of 65. These contributions cease 28 days after the 75 th Birthday.
10 How is a Contribution made? This can be achieved in the following manner: Transferring money to an SMSF In-specie transfer of assets Increasing the value of assets owned by an SMSF Payment of an expense by a third party Forgiving a debt owed by the SMSF Rolling over benefits from another superannuation fund.
11 Transferring money to an SMSF A contribution of funds as cash, or an electronic transfer, is made when the amount is received by the superannuation provider or credited to the relevant account. It is not until an amount is credited to a bank account of the superannuation provider that a contribution will be taken to be made. A superannuation provider s account statement would normally provide the best evidence as to when a contribution is received.
12 Transferring money to an SMSF However, in limited circumstances, other evidence may be used to determine when a contribution is made: For example, a transfer of funds between the linked accounts of a member of a self managed superannuation fund and the fund held at the same financial institution. Evidence, such as a computer print-out recording the receipt of the amount into an account of the superannuation provider, may be used to establish the timing of the contribution.
13 In-specie transfer of listed shares or property A contribution by way of a transfer of an asset will be made when the superannuation provider obtains ownership of the asset from the contributor. Legal ownership when the change of ownership or title is registered with the Titles Office or Share Registry. Beneficial Ownership when the seller gives the buyer a signed copy of the transfer forms.
14 In-specie transfer of listed shares or property The formal registration of the change of legal ownership occurs some time after beneficial ownership of the property passes. In recognising this, the Commissioner accepts that a superannuation provider may treat a contribution of property as made when beneficial ownership of the property is obtained by the superannuation provider.
15 Example when In Specie contribution of real property is made Bob owns land on which retail premises have been constructed. Those premises include the site from which Bob runs his pharmacy business. Bob decides to contribute the Business Real Property to his Self-Managed Superannuation Fund. The fund has a Corporate Trustee, CarPharm Pty Ltd. Bob and his wife Janet are Directors.
16 Example when In Specie contribution of real property is made The Directors of CarPharm Pty Ltd resolve to accept the contribution of the land on 1 June After obtaining advice from their Solicitor, Bob, as the owner of the land, and Bob and Janet, as Directors of the Corporate Trustee, complete the necessary land transfer forms. As Trustees they take possession of those forms and the relevant title deeds on Monday, 29 June Therefore as at that date, Bob and Janet hold all the documents in registrable form necessary to obtain registration of title to the land in their capacity as Directors of the Corporate Trustee.
17 Example when In Specie contribution of real property is made Janet lodges the forms with the Registrar of Land Titles on 2 July CarPharm Pty Ltd is registered as owner of the land on 9 July What date is the contribution deemed to have been made? In these circumstances, Bob s contribution will be made on 29 June Important consideration if looking to utilise the contribution caps.
18 Example when In Specie contribution of shares is made On 26 June 2015 Tony signs off an Off-Market Transfer form to effect a contribution of shares from himself to Ronaldo Pty Ltd, the Trustee of his Self-Managed Superannuation Fund. However, Tony leaves certain parts of the form blank for completion by his Stockbroker, as the shares are Broker Sponsored. Tony posts the transfer form to his Broker on the same day. Tony s Broker adds the omitted information on 2 July 2015 and completes the transfer through CHESS. Ronaldo Pty Ltd is registered as a shareholder on 5 July 2015.
19 Example when In Specie contribution of shares is made What is the date the contribution to superannuation has been made? Tony s contribution will be made on 2 July It is the day the relevant transfer form has been completed to registrable form that a contribution has been made. In these circumstances, Tony s contribution will be made on 2 July Again the timing is important with regard to contribution caps.
20 Payment of fund expense The Commissioner recognises it has become common within some parts of the superannuation industry for a person or employer to pay an expense on behalf of a superannuation fund. The practice involves making journal entries after the expense is paid that: Re-classifies the expense payment as a superannuation contribution; and Recognises the making of the contribution and payment of the expenses in the accounts of the superannuation provider.
21 Payment of fund expense Where a person pays an amount to a third party to satisfy a liability of a superannuation fund, the fund is taken to have constructively received the payment made to the third party on the superannuation fund s behalf. The payment to the third party increases the capital of the fund because the person s payment of the superannuation fund s expense extinguishes the liability of the provider.
22 Example Contribution made by paying fund expense Snow has a Self-Managed Superannuation Fund of which she is the sole member. During the income year Snow arranged accounting and audit services to ensure the fund met its income tax and regulatory obligations for the year ended 30 June Snow paid the accounting and audit fees for the fund from her own money. Snow did not reimburse her outlay from fund monies.
23 Example Contribution made by paying fund expense By satisfying a liability of the fund Snow has indirectly increased the capital of the fund. Snow s purpose of paying the liability of the fund without re-imbursement increased the ultimate benefit she would receive from the fund. Therefore Snow made a contribution to the fund when she paid the accounting and audit fees.
24 Example Contribution made by paying fund expense Be very careful if 65 or over and do not satisfy the work test. Members are unable to make a contribution to superannuation even a deemed superannuation contribution such as paying a fund expense. May be considered financial assistance to the SMSF or a loan. Could lead to significant financial penalties from the ATO!
25 Non-concessional contributions cap If the member is 64 or less on 1 July of the financial year, the Non- Concessional Contributions Cap is $180,000 per year or $540,000 over three years. If the member is 65 but less than 75 on 1 July of the financial year, the Non- Concessional Contributions Cap is $180,000 per year. Once a member attains age 65, superannuation funds can only accept contributions if the member works at least 40 hours in a continuous 30 day period in that same financial year, and PRIOR TO THE CONTRIBUTION BEING MADE!
26 The bring-forward rule Taxpayers who are aged 64 or less on 1 July of the financial year may be able to bring forward two years worth of their Non-Concessional Contributions. $540,000 can be contributed over a three-year period. This bring-forward is not applied for or opted into. Once an eligible taxpayer s Non-Concessional Contributions in the financial year are greater than their Non-Concessional Contributions Cap (i.e. $180,000) the bring-forward is automatically triggered.
27 The bring-forward rule
28 Example - The bring-forward rule During the financial year Brian, 40, makes personal contributions of $210,000 to his fund, intending to claim a personal superannuation deduction of $30,000. However, due to the downturn in his business, his taxable income for the income year was only $15,000, so only $15,000 is allowable to him as a personal superannuation deduction. Therefore, his Concessional Contributions for the financial year are $15,000 and his Non-Concessional Contributions are $195,000.
29 Example - The bring-forward rule As Brian s Non-Concessional Contributions ($195,000) were greater than his Non-Concessional Contributions Cap ($180,000) and he was aged 64 or less on 1 July of the financial year (and he was not already in a bringforward arrangement), the bring-forward rule is automatically triggered.
30 Example - The bring-forward rule His first-year cap is three times the Non-Concessional Contributions Cap of the first year that is, $540,000. Brian s second-year Non-Concessional Cap is his first-year cap ($540,000) minus his first year contributions ($195,000) - that is, $345,000. Brian makes Non-Concessional Contributions of $180,000 in the second year. Brian s third-year Non-Concessional Contributions Cap is his second-year cap ($345,000) minus his second-year contributions ($180,000) - that is, $165,000.
31 Example - The bring-forward rule Trent and Theo are twins. Both were aged 64 on 1 July of the financial year but turn 65 in that year. Both are retired. Trent makes a contribution of $540,000 before he turns 65. He triggers the bring-forward provisions and has a second year cap of $0. As he has no non-concessional contributions cap left, he makes no contributions in either the second or third year.
32 Example - The bring-forward rule However, Theo makes a contribution of $200,000 before he turns 65. He also triggers the bring-forward provisions, but his second-year cap is $340,000. Theo sends a contribution of $180,000 to his fund on 30 June of the second year. However, as he was 65 on 1 July of the second year and does not meet the work test, his fund returns the amount. The fund will not report any contributions for Theo in the second year.
33 Example - The bring-forward rule In the third year Theo s bring-forward cap is again $340,000 (that is, $340,000 - $0). He now takes on a job as a circus clown, working 10 hours a week, in order to meet the work test. As he now meets the work test, his fund can accept member contributions from him. He sends his fund a contribution of $340,000 on June 30 of the third year. Question Can the Trustee of the fund accept the $340,000 contribution for the third year from Theo?
34 Example - The bring-forward rule Answer No as Theo was over 65 years old on 1 July of the financial year, his fundcapped contribution limit for the third year is only $180,000 (despite the bring-forward provisions being triggered) and the fund returns the excess $160,000 to him. Theo has therefore only contributed $380,000 over the three years. If Theo had contributed the $340,000 in two amounts; say $180,000 and $160,000 on different days the Trustee would have been able to accept them as neither contribution is in excess of the $180,000 contribution cap. Source: ATO SuperUpdate August 2009
35 Example - The non-concessional contribution cap A person, Richard, aged 55 years is a member of his SMSF (Old n Slow Fund). During the financial year Richard made a contribution to Old n Slow Fund by transferring an amount from his overseas bank account. After conversion to Australian dollars the amount of the contribution was $542,000. The full amount of the contribution was a non-concessional contribution.
36 Example - The non-concessional contribution cap The member, in his capacity as Trustee of Old n Slow Fund, has asked whether the fund has to return the full amount of the contribution or only $2,000, being the amount by which the contribution exceeds three times the non-concessional contributions cap. Question Is a Trustee of a SMSF required to return the whole of a fund-capped contribution to a contributor if it is greater than three times the amount of the non-concessional contributions cap for that financial year?
37 Example - The non-concessional contribution cap Answer As the member was aged 64 or less on 1 July of the financial year the Trustee is only required to return that part of the fund-capped contribution that exceeds three times the amount of the non-concessional contributions Cap for the financial year. Had the member been aged 65 or more but less than 75 on 1 July of the financial year, the Trustee would have been required to return that part of the fund-capped contribution that exceeds the non-concessional contributions cap for the financial year (i.e. $542,000 - $180,000 = $362,000 returned).
38 Example - The non-concessional contribution cap Answer For the financial year three times the amount of the nonconcessional contribution cap is $540,000. For the purposes of this regulation, the $540,000 is not reduced by other non-concessional contributions made by the member to the Old n Slow Fund (or any other fund) in that financial year or earlier financial years. In this case, the amount of $2,000 is required to be returned to the member as $2,000 is the amount that the contribution of $542,000 exceeds three times the Non-Concessional Contribution Cap for the financial year of $540,000.

39 Refund of excess concessional contributions From 1 July 2013 excess concessional contributions refunded to the member. Amount withdrawn is taxed at marginal tax rates, plus penalty interest to reflect the fact the tax will be collected late. No limit to the number of times the refund can take place. Majority of ECT breaches are concessional contributions, which then become non-concessional contributions. If excess not withdrawn then counts as a non-concessional contribution.
40 Refund of excess non-concessional contributions Now LAW (received Royal Assent 19 March 2015). Refund of excess non-concessional contributions, plus associated earnings can be released from super. Earnings taxed at individual s marginal tax rate. The individual provided with ability to release excess plus earnings and therefore have no excess non-concessional contributions. Applies from 1 July 2013 onwards. If contributions not released, the old laws apply.
41 Refund of excess non-concessional contributions Commissioner must make a written determination. If individuals elect to release the excess contribution it is irrevocable. Must be made within 60 days of the Commissioner s determination. Associated earnings are approximated. Approximated earnings included in the individual s assessable income. Earnings are calculated using an average of the General Interest Charge (GIC) for the 4 quarters in the financial year. Compounded on a daily basis.
42 Example Belinda had excess non-concessional contributions of $100,000 in the 2013/14 financial year. The Commissioner issues Belinda an excess non-concessional determination on 1 November Earnings are calculated as follows: % x ($100,000 plus the sum of the earlier daily proxy amounts) for the 489 day period from 1 July 2013 until 1 November The result of the formula is associated earnings of $13,814.
43 Refund of excess non-concessional contributions If there is no longer any money in super (because the member has received a lump sum payment) the full amount of the earnings will still be included in the individual s assessable income. A payment in response to a release authority must be paid from the tax-free components. The amount released itself does not have any tax consequences for the individual other than the earnings included in assessable income. If there is not enough in the fund, the Commissioner may allow the member to nominate another fund.
44 Contribution Strategies turning 65 in the FY If the member is 64 or less on 1 July of the financial year, the nonconcessional contributions cap is $180,000. Unless the bring-forward rule has been automatically triggered. To use the bring-forward rule if 65 or over, must trigger before turning 65. Must also satisfy the work test once turned 65.
45 Example turning 65 in the FY Bill is 64 on 1 July He contributes $190,000 non-concessional contribution to his SMSF. He has therefore triggered the bring-forward rule automatically. During the financial year, after turning 65, Bill wishes to contribute a further $350,000 as a single contribution. He can do this, as he was 64 on 1 July 2015 (he has up until 30 June 2016 to make this contribution). The only requirement is that, after the age of 65, he must satisfy the work test prior to making the contribution.
46 Example turning 65 in the FY If Bill does not use remainder of the bring-forward provisions in the financial year, he can still use them in Bill could still contribute $350,000 to his SMSF in Even though he is 65 years of age! However two elements must now be satisfied: He must satisfy the work test prior to the contribution Each contribution must be up to his fund-capped contribution limit. So $350,000 would need to be contributed in two lots one for $180,000 and one for $170,000.
47 Example turning 65 in the FY Bill still has the bring-forward provisions in So even if he contributes nothing in , he can still contribute $350,000 in the following year. Again, two elements must now be satisfied: He must satisfy the work test prior to the contribution Each contribution must be up to his fund-capped contribution limit. $350,000 would need to be contributed in two lots as his fund-capped contribution limit as a 65+ year-old is $180,000 (not indexed). The opportunity is lost thereafter.
48 Using a Contributions Account It is like an suspense account as it holds contributions for a short time before they are allocated to a member. Must be allocated within 28 days of the month following that in which the contribution is made. Therefore a contribution made in June must be allocated to a member by 28 July. It is recorded against the member s cap in the year of allocation not the year of contribution.
49 Example - Using a Contributions Account Jason, aged 45, is a member of an SMSF and makes a personal concessional contribution of $30,000 on 4 April He makes a further $30,000 personal concessional contribution on 28 June The contribution in June is applied to an unallocated contributions account established in accordance with the fund s governing rules. On 4 July 2015 the Trustee resolves to allocate the contribution to Jason.
50 Example - Using a Contributions Account The outcome of this strategy is: Jason can claim a $60,000 superannuation deduction in his personal tax return in Must have sufficient assessable income and satisfy the 10% rule. $60,000 will be included as assessable income in the fund in the financial year. $30,000 will count towards his concessional contributions cap in the financial year. $30,000 will count towards his concessional contributions cap in the financial year.
51 Example - Using a Contributions Account The ATO systems cannot cope with this strategy. The ATO will incorrectly assume $30,000 has been allocated to Jason on 28 June This means an incorrect ATO Excess Contributions Tax (ECT) Notice will be issued. Jason will then need to lodge an objection and explain how a Contributions Account was being utilised. Must have supporting documentation!
52 Re-contribution strategy This strategy converts the taxable portion of superannuation benefits into tax-free components. Reduces the potential for tax payable when super is passed to beneficiaries post death. Also has the potential to reduce any tax payable on pension income for pension recipients less than 60 years of age. Increases the tax free portion of pension income if pensions become taxable again due to legislative change.
53 Example - Re-contribution strategy Peter, 57, and retired, has $400,000 in his SMSF. $200,000 is a taxable component. Peter could withdraw $360,000 from his SMSF and the tax situation would be as follows: $180,000 tax free component 0% tax. $180,000 taxable component tax free up to low tax threshold of $185,000 Therefore the tax impost would be nil.
54 Example - Re-contribution strategy Peter could then re-contribute the full $360,000 into super as a nonconcessional contribution. So his new components would be: Taxable component - $20,000 Tax free component - $380,000 So the tax free component is now 95% - up from 50%. If Peter was to pass away and his benefit paid to his adult children, $180,000 taxable component is now tax free, saving $30,600 lump sum tax.
55 Example - Re-contribution strategy Tax free component Taxable component Initial super balance $200,000 $200,000 Withdrawal $180,000 $180,000 Remaining components in fund $20,000 $20,000 Re-contribution strategy $360,000 Components after re-contribution $380,000 $20,000 Is this Part IVA i.e. tax avoidance? No the ATO have stated this is not tax avoidance.
56 Conclusion Utilise contributions strategies! Superannuation is the best tax structure for retirement savings. Understand how the caps work and how to best utilise them. Timing of contributions is crucial especially in-specie contributions. If approaching 65 consider maximising benefits using the bring-forward rule. If looking to maximise a tax deduction in a particular financial year, look at utilising the use of an Unallocated Contributions Account. And a re-contribution strategy can provide enhanced estate planning benefits as well as future-proof your benefit against legislative risk.
