Membership At 1 July ,361 New members 970 Members who left the CCIST 1,517 At 30 June ,814 FROM THE TRUSTEE We are pleased to present our Annual Report for the year ended 30 June This report is issued by CCSL Limited ( the Trustee ), ABN , RSE Licence No. L , AFS Licence No The information provided in this report is in accordance with the require ments of the Corporations Act and Corporations Regulations The information is of a general nature only and has been prepared without taking into account your investment objectives, financial situation and needs. Before making any decisions in relation to the CCIST you should consider obtaining professional financial advice from a Licenced or authorised financial advisor. Whilst all due care has been taken in the preparation of this report, the Trustee reserves its right to correct any errors or omissions. The terms of your membership in the CCIST are set out in the CCIST s Trust Deed and any applicable insurance policy. Should there be any inconsistency between this report and the CCIST s Trust Deed, the terms of the CCIST s Trust Deed will prevail. The Trustee holds professional indemnity insurance to protect the Trustee, its directors and the CCIST against certain losses or liabilities. The indemnity insurance cover is subject to the terms and conditions of the relevant insurance policy. ABOUT THE CCIST CCIST is designed to provide insurance benefits to employees of participating employers in a superannuation environment. The participating employer pays the cost and in doing so, may provide members with financial protection against adverse future events such as death or total and permanent disablement. For employers, CCIST can be a convenient way of arranging tax effe ctive life insurance for employees. Contributions paid into the CCIST will generally be tax deductible to the employer. CCIST is a flexible, cost-effective superannuation fund designed to meet the superannuation needs of members by providing death benefits to dependants and, in some cases, total and permanent disablement (TPD) benefits to members. CCIST has no investment component, and as such members will not accrue an account balance. The contributions paid to the fund employers for each member a re held until insurance premiums are paid, or insurance proceeds are paid to a member. The investment objective is to maintain the capital value of the funds and this is done solely by holding money in the CCIST bank account. The Fund does not invest in derivatives. The Directors of the Trustee during the year ended 30 June 2013 were: Name Mark Cerché (chairman) Murray Jones Andrew de Vries Vincent Parrott 1

3 Employer s Contributions As benefits within the CCIST relate to insurance only, members are not able to make any contributions or rollovers for accumulation purposes within the CCIST. The participating employer will make employer contributions on behalf of members. These contributions will be equal to the Insurance Premium payable for the insurance cover as detailed in the applicable PDS Part B: Employee Insurance Guide. Superannuation law limits the amount of superannuation that can be contributed in any financial year at a concessional tax rate. The concessional contributions caps for the 2012/13 and 2013/14 financial years are set out below. Income year 2012/13 $25, /14 $25,000 Amount of cap The $25,000 limit will be periodically increased in line with Average Weekly Ordinary Times Earnings in $5,000 increments. However, Parliament passed legislation to pause the indexation of the concessional contributions cap at $25,000 up to and including the 2013/14 year. Normal indexation resumes for the 2014/15 year. Recent changes now provide an un-indexed concessional contributions cap of $35,000 for: From 1 July 2013 individuals who are 60 years old or over From 1 July 2014 individuals who are 50 years old or over. Details of the cap for later years will be available from your adviser or by calling the Client Service Line on The contributions paid by participating employers for the cover provided under the CCIST are classified as concessional contributions and are included in the concessional contribution cap. Contact the Australian Taxation Office on or visit for further information. Tax File Numbers We are authorised to collect each member s Tax File Number (TFN). It will remain confidential and will be used only for lawful purposes, such as providing information to the Australian Taxation Office. These purposes may change in the future as the result of legislative change. A TFN may be disclosed to another superannuation provider when a member s benefits are being transferred, unless the member requests in writing that their TFN is not to be disclosed to any other Trustee. Membership to the CCIST is only available if a TFN has been provided. Therefore, insurance cover will not be provided to any employees where we do not have a TFN on file. Tax on contributions If a Tax File Number (TFN) is not provided to the CCIST, an additional tax of 31.5% (including Medicare Levy) may apply to the entire contribution. This cost would be borne by the CCIST. For this reason employees will not be accepted as members of the CCIST unless their TFN has been provided. Tax on death benefits The taxation of death benefits will depend on whether the beneficiary is a dependant as defined under taxation law (tax dependant). Note that this is different to the definition of dependant under superannuation law. A person will be a tax depe ndant if they are: A spouse (this includes married couples, de facto spouses (including same -sex) and certain registered relationships); A child of the member or spouse of the member (including an adopted child, step-child or ex-nuptial child or someone who is a child within the meaning of the Family Law Act 1975) so long as the child is under age 18; A person with whom the member had an interdependency relationship A person who was a financial dependant of the member. Also, if any part of the death benefit is paid to a Legal Personal Representative, it may be deemed to have been paid to a tax dependant if the Commissioner of Taxation accepts that the person receiving the payment via the member s estate is a tax dependant. Death benefits are tax-free if paid to a tax dependant. Death benefits paid to a non-tax dependant are generally taxed at 16.5%, inclusive of Medicare levy. A portion of the benefit may be an untaxed element (relating to the future service period of the insurance amount). That element is taxable at the maximum rate of 31.5%, inclusive of Medicare Levy. Below is a summary of how lump sum death benefits are taxed: Lump sum paid to: Tax dependants Tax Free Non-tax dependants Taxed element 15% 1 1 Plus Medicare Levy of 1.5% Tax on terminal illness benefits Untaxed element 30% 1 The insurance policy may allow for death benefit to be paid if the member is terminally ill. Lump sum benefit payments paid to a member who is terminally ill will be tax-free. A member will be taken to be terminally ill if two medical practitioners (at least one of these a specialist) certify that the member is suffering from an illness that in the normal course would result in death within 12 months. For each of the certificates, the certification period must not have ended. Tax on TPD benefits 2

4 Where the Trustee allows, TPD insurance cover benefits paid to those aged 60 or over are generally tax free. Benefits paid to those under age 60 are taxed as set out in the following table: Both forms are located in the PDS. For a copy of the PDS contact the CCIST Administrator using the contact details in the Directory at the back of this report. Age Taxable Component 60 and above Tax free On or over preservation age and under age 60 0% up to Low Rate Threshold 1 15% 2 over the Low Rate Threshold 1 Under preservation age 20% 2 on the whole amount 1 The Low rate threshold is $180,000 for 2013/14 is a lifetime limit per person and is indexed annually to AWOTE in increments of $5,000 2 Plus Medicare Levy of 1.5% Insurance Cover Members will receive either death only or death and total and permanent disablement cover through an insurance policy held in the CCIST. The type and level of cover is chosen by the participating employer. The details of the cover provided are explained in the PDS Part B: Employee Insurance Guide. Guaranteed renewability The Insurer guarantees to renew the insurance cover each year provided no termination event has occurred. The insurer will not cancel the insurance cover or increase premiums due to any change in the health, occupation or pastimes of the members during the guarantee period. Binding nomination Members can make either a binding or non-binding death benefit nomination to nominate who is to receive all or part of the member s benefit upon death. If the benefit is paid to the member s Legal Personal Representative, it will be distributed according to their Will. A non-binding death benefit nomination is not binding on, but will be considered by the Trustee. The Trustee will use its discretion when deciding how the death benefit should be paid. A binding death benefit nomination is binding on the Trustee. This means that, provided the nomination is valid at the time of death, the Trustee must pay the death benefit as the member has specified. To make a nomination, either the Binding or Non-Binding nomination form needs to be completed and the form returned to: CCIST PO Box 1282 Albury NSW

6 Operation Of Fund Reserve The Fund operates a Reserve Account. Source and Limits of Reserve The primary purpose of the Reserve is to pay certain Fund expenses properly chargeable to the Fund, at the discretion of the Trustee, as they fall due. The Reserve may also be used to facilitate the funding of the Fund s Operational Risk Financial Requirement (ORFR). In this regard, amounts from the Reserve may be transferred to the Operational Ris k Reserve. The Reserve will be invested in line with the Trust s investment strategy, as determined by the Trustee from time to time. The amount of the Reserve as at 30 June (for the respective year) is: 30 June Reserve value $ , , ,215 Operation Risk Reserve The Federal Government as part of its Stronger Super reforms has imposed a requirement for funds to establish and maintain an Operational Risk Reserve (ORR) to specifically cover potential losses arising from operational risks that may affect the Funds business operations. An operational risk is the risk of a loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems, or from external events. The ORR may be drawn upon to assist in compensating members or the Fund in the event of an ope rational risk having materialised.
