2 Section 7. How super is taxed

3 Section 7. How super is taxed The information in this document forms part of the HostPlus Superannuation Fund and Hostplus Personal Super Plan Product Disclosure Statement 26 September Here's a brief summary of how your super is taxed. It's quite different to the income tax you're used to and can be complex. So we recommend that you seek independent, professional taxation advice or contact the ATO for more help with any super tax questions you may have. 7.1 Tax File Numbers It is in your interest to give Hostplus your Tax File Number (TFN) when you join. Generally there are significant consequences if your TFN is not quoted or incorrectly quoted when contributions are made for you, such as: an additional tax of 30% (plus Medicare levy and the temporary 2% Budget Repair levy) is imposed on No TFN contributions paid into the fund on your behalf, in addition to 15% tax on employer contributions, we cannot accept your personal contributions, and Government co-contributions are not payable. The additional tax will be deducted: for contributions each year as at 30 June or upon the member exiting Hostplus. for benefits upon payment of a benefit. If you do not have a TFN contact the ATO ato.gov.au on SuperMatch If you have provided consent to the fund, we will access the ATO system (SuperMatch) on your behalf to inform you about your superannuation interests, assist you to manage your superannuation interests as reported to the ATO and reunite you with lost super or monies held on your behalf by the ATO. The ATO will use your TFN as the primary identifier in matching your lost super or multiple accounts. You can provide your TFN and SuperMatch consent to Hostplus at hostplus.com.au.

4 7.2 Claiming your No TFN contributions tax You may claim the additional tax paid on No TFN contributions (the additional 30% plus Medicare levy and from 1 July 2014 the temporary 2% Budget Repair levy) if you quote your TFN to Hostplus within three years from the end of the financial year that the additional tax for the No TFN contributions were payable. If you quote your TFN to Hostplus: before 30 June, the additional tax will be credited to your account as at 30 June that year after 30 June, the additional tax will be credited as at 30 June the following year. Example Sam did not provide his TFN to the trustee before 30 June The trustee deducted the additional No TFN tax (30% plus Medicare levy instead of 15%) out of Sam s account at 30 June On 20 July 2015, Sam quotes his TFN to the trustee. The trustee will credit the additional tax deducted on 30 June 2015 to Sam s account on 30 June Taxation of contributions Concessional contributions Concessional contributions (including employer and self-employed contributions) are taxed at 15% on amounts up to the $30,000 a year cap and $35,000 a year cap for those aged 49 or over on 30 June Amounts over the concessional contributions cap will be taxed at the individual s marginal tax rate, plus an interest charge to recognise that tax on excess contributions is collected later than normal income tax. You will be entitled to a non-refundable tax-offset equal to 15% to account for the contributions tax that has already been paid in respect of your excess concessional contributions. Alternatively, you may elect to withdraw up to 85% of your excess concessional contributions from the fund to help pay your income tax assessment when you have excess concessional contributions. Any excess concessional contributions withdrawn from Hostplus will no longer count towards your non-concessional contributions cap. If you earn income more than $300,000, you will pay an additional tax of 15% (i.e. 30% tax) on those concessional contributions exceeding the $300,000 threshold. The definition of income for the purpose of this measure includes taxable income, reportable fringe benefits, total net investment losses, target foreign income, tax free government pensions and benefits and concessional contributions up to the cap. This does not apply to excess contributions that have been subject to excess contributions tax. Accordingly, the ATO requires information on an individual s income tax return and member contribution details in order to make an assessment of this tax. Non-concessional contributions For non-concessional contributions, Hostplus is unable to accept contributions over the non-concessional contributions cap of $180,000. However, if Hostplus does inadvertently receive non-concessional contributions over the non-concessional cap, excess non-concessional contributions will be taxed at 45% Page 2 We're here to help - call , 8am - 8pm, Monday to Friday or visit hostplus.com.au Last updated 14 October 2015

5 (plus Medicare levy and the temporary 2% budget repair levy). However, the excess contributions tax will not be imposed on excess non-concessional contributions if you elect to release excess non-concessional contributions and 85% of associated earnings arising from those contributions, after receiving a written determination from the Commissioner of Taxation. Excess nonconcessional contributions tax will be imposed on any excess non-concessional contributions that remain with the fund. The full associated earnings amount will be included in your assessable income in the year the excess nonconcessional contribution arose and will be taxed at your marginal tax rate. You will be entitled to a nonrefundable tax-offset equal to 15% of the associated earnings amount that is included in your assessable income. If you are under 65 years of age, you can contribute up to $540,000 tax free over a three year period. However, any more contributions made in that three year period in excess of the cap will be taxed at 45% (plus Medicare levy and the temporary 2% Budget Repair levy). Please note that before 1 July 2014, this cap was $150,000 or $450,000 over a three-year period, and if you commenced making non-concessional contributions in excess of $150,000 in the 2014 financial year, you may only contribute up to an aggregate $450,000 (and not $540,000) over the period 1 July 2014 to 30 June No contributions tax is payable on: personal contributions (or non-concessional contributions) for which you do not claim a tax deduction, spouse contributions, amounts transferred or rolled into Hostplus from other superannuation funds (except where it includes a post 30 June 1983 untaxed component such as a golden handshake ), and Government co-contributions. See Section 2: How super works - Understanding contributions Superannuation contributions surcharge assessments issued by the ATO ato.gov.au will still apply for contributions paid for previous financial years if the surcharge has not previously been paid. 7.4 Tax deduction for personal super contributions If you are self-employed or substantially self-employed (i.e. you earn less than 10% of your income, including assessable income and fringe benefits from an employer) you can claim a tax deduction. Eligible members intending to claim a tax deduction for their personal super contributions should lodge with their super fund a Notice of intent to claim or vary a deduction for personal super contributions form (NAT 71121) and receive a confirmation from the trustee the earlier of the following dates: the day that you lodge your tax return. the end of the income year following the year in which the personal contributions were made. For more information or to download the NAT form visit the ATO ato.gov.au. Page 3 We're here to help - call , 8am - 8pm, Monday to Friday or visit hostplus.com.au Last updated 14 October 2015

6 7.5 Taxation of investment returns Investment returns are taxed up to a maximum rate of 15%. Where the assets are invested in Australian and international equities, the tax payable can be partly offset by imputation credits for franked dividends and foreign tax credits. Any capital gains are limited to two thirds of the gain or the whole of the gain with an indexed cost base, depending on the date that the assets were acquired. 7.6 Taxation of benefits on withdrawal Tax may be payable when you withdraw a lump sum benefit from Hostplus. The amount of tax will depend on your age, the amount of your benefit, the benefit components and how you decide to use the benefit. Tax will not be payable if you roll over or transfer your benefits to another complying super fund or if you use your benefit to purchase an income stream e.g. if you rolled over your superannuation to Hostplus Pension. Lump sum benefits comprise two components. 1. The tax free component which includes: the contributions segment. the crystallised segment. The contributions segment generally includes all contributions made from 1 July 2007 that have not been included in the assessable income of the fund. Typically these would be a member s personal contributions that are not claimed as an income tax deduction. The crystallised segment includes the following existing components of a super interest that were consolidated into the tax-free component on 1 July 2007: the concessional component. the post-june 1994 invalidity component. undeducted contributions. the capital gains tax (CGT) exempt component. the pre-july 1983 component. The crystallised segment was calculated by assuming that an eligible termination payment representing the full value of the superannuation interest is paid just before 1 July The taxable component which includes: an element taxed in the fund, and/or an element untaxed in the fund. The tax that Hostplus deducts will only apply to the element taxed in the fund (for example the 15% tax paid on contributions and investment returns). Any other tax payable will be assessed in your tax return following the payment of the benefit.

7 7.7 The taxable components of lump sum benefits and tax on contributions Tax on lump sum benefits No tax is payable on the tax free component. Tax on taxable components are as per table below: Age Tax treatment of lump sum benefits for the year 1 July June 2016 Taxable component tax element (where 15 % contributions tax has been paid) Below preservation age 20% Preservation age - 59 years Nil up to $195, % for amounts over $195, Tax free Taxable component untaxed element (where 15 % contributions tax has not been paid) Below preservation age 30% for amounts up to $ million 45%* for amounts over $ million Page 5 We're here to help - call , 8am - 8pm, Monday to Friday or visit hostplus.com.au Last updated 14 October 2015

8 Preservation age - 59 years 15% for amounts up to $195, % for amounts between $195,000 1 and $ million 45%* for amounts over $1,395 2 million % for amounts up to $ million 45%* for amounts over $ million 1. This is the low rate cap amount applicable to the income year. The low rate cap is a lifetime limit which is indexed annually in line with Average Weekly Ordinary Time Earnings (AWOTE) but only increases in increments of $5, This is the untaxed plan cap amount applicable to the income year. The untaxed plan cap is indexed annually in line with AWOTE but only increases in increments of $5,000. Note: The tax rate figures above do not include the 2% Medicare levy which is also payable. * Plus the temporary 2% Budget Repair levy if applicable. Tax on contributions Type of contribution Tax on contributions for the year 1 July June 2016 Before tax (concessional) such as employer, salary sacrifice and selfemployed contributions 15% on amounts up to $30,000 a year cap If aged 49 or over on 30 June 2015; 15% on amounts up to $35,000 a year cap Amounts over the cap will be taxed at your marginal tax rate 1 Page 6 We're here to help - call , 8am - 8pm, Monday to Friday or visit hostplus.com.au Last updated 14 October 2015

9 After-tax (non-concessional) from your net salary such as personal and spouses contributions 0% on amounts up to $180,000 a year. 45% 1 on amounts more than $180,000 a year. If under age 65, you can contribute up to $540,000 tax-free in the first year of a three-year period. Any contributions over $540,000 in that three-year period will be taxed at 45% 1 1. Note: the tax rate figures above do not include the 2% Medicare levy which is also payable, and if applicable, the temporary 2% Budget Repair Levy for members whose annual taxable income is over $180,000. If your income (including your before-tax contributions) is over $300,000, all or some of your before-tax contributions will be taxed at 30%. 7.8 Part payment of benefits When a part payment of super is made, you won t be able to indicate whether you want the benefit taken from your tax free component or your taxable component. Instead, the benefit will generally include both components in the same proportion as they exist in the total benefit. The table below provides an illustration where a member s benefit consists of a taxable component as to 60% and a tax free component as to 40%. Component Taxable Tax free Total Total benefit proportion $60,000 60% $40,000 40% $100, % Part payment of $20,000 proportion $12,000 60% $8,000 40% $20, % Balance after payment proportion $48,000 $32,000 $80,000 60% 40% 100% Super for temporary residents For information about contributions and tax on super for temporary residents see: Section 2: How super works - If you re a temporary resident.

10 7.9 Goods and Services Tax (GST) No GST is payable on contributions, on benefits paid, rolled over or transferred, or on the net investment return applied to a member s account Death benefits Death benefits are tax free when paid to tax dependants. A dependant for these purposes is a spouse, a child less than 18, a person with whom the deceased had an interdependency relationship on the date of death, or any other person who was a financial dependant of the deceased on the date of death. The definition of spouse includes same sex couples and the definition of child includes eligible children of same sex couples. This means that same sex couples and their children are able to access the same tax concessions on lump sum death benefits available to married and de facto opposite sex couples. In addition a spouse is recognised when the relationship is registered on the Register of Births and Marriages under State or Territory law. Any untaxed element in a taxable component of a lump sum benefit where the benefit included life insurance proceeds will be taxed at 30% (plus Medicare levy). The untaxed element is the proportion of your insured lump sum death benefit that relates to the period from the date of death to age 65, in comparison to your total service period. If the lump sum death benefit is paid to a non-dependant, the taxable component will be taxed at 15% (plus Medicare levy) but part of the benefit may be taxed at up to 30% (plus Medicare levy) if it comprises of insurance proceeds. The tax free component will be tax free if paid to a non-dependant. Anti-detriment payments As an additional benefit of being a Hostplus member, the Trustee offers anti detriment payments to its members. We are not obligated under law to pay these amounts. What is anti-detriment payment? This purpose of this payment is to refund the tax paid on concessional contributions when a member dies. This can effectively increase the superannuation death benefit available to the member s dependent beneficiaries. Who can receive an anti-detriment payment? An anti-detriment amount can only be paid to eligible dependents under the Income Tax Assessment Act A spouse or former spouse of the deceased A child of any age or The estate (provided the ultimate beneficiaries are as above) Definition of spouse also includes same sex couples. Certain people in interdependency relationships have a right to be treated as a partner. A former spouse needs to be dependent under the SIS Act (such as a financial dependent or interdependent) in order to receive a death benefit from the fund.

11 Child can include step or adopted children. The anti-detriment payment can only be made when commuted pension is paid as a lump sum within the prescribed period. The prescribed period is normally six months from death or three months from grant of probate whichever is later Total and Permanent Disability benefits Total and Permanent Disability benefits are taxed as a lump sum benefit, with the taxable and tax-free components. Generally, the tax free component will include the proportion of the benefit that relates to the period from the date of total and permanent disablement to age Salary continuance (Income protection) benefits Salary Continuance benefits are generally taxed at your marginal tax rate Terminal Illness benefits If a member suffers from a terminal illness as (a) certified by two medical practitioners (one being a specialist) and (b) stipulating death within 24 months of the certification, then lump sum superannuation benefits paid are tax free.
