  3. Agenda • Why invest via Super? • Super strategies • Insurance • Other tax-effective year-end opportunities • How I can help SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  4. Why invest via Super? Tax concessions every step of the way 1. When you contribute to super • Make contributions from pre-tax salary • Claim contributions as a tax deduction • Get a Government co-contribution of up to $500 • Get a tax offset of up to $540 Now Retirement 1 Includes a Medicare levy of 1.5%. SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  5. Why invest via Super? Tax concessions every step of the way 2. While build up super • Earnings in fund taxed at maximum of 15% • Earnings from investments in own name taxed at up to 46.5% Now Retirement 1 Includes a Medicare levy of 1.5%. SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  6. Why invest via Super? Tax concessions every step of the way • 3. When using super to pay pension • No tax on investment earnings • Tax offset between 55 and 59 • Tax-free income at 60+ Now Retirement 1 Includes a Medicare levy of 1.5%. SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  7. Super EOFY strategies • For middle to higher income earners under 55 • Get more from your salary or bonus • You can only sacrifice prospective salary or a bonus into super (i.e. income to which you are not already entitled) and need to make an effective salary sacrifice agreement with your employer. SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014 1 Includes a Medicare levy of 1.5%.

  8. Salary sacrifice case study William is aged 45 • About to receive a $5,000 pa salary increase • Will bring his total salary to $100,000 pa • Considering salary sacrificing this additional $5,000 into super SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  9. Salary sacrifice case study 1 Includes a Medicare levy of 1.5%. SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  10. $189,371 $200,000 + $69,886 $160,000 Results (after 20 years) $119,485 $120,000 $80,000 $40,000 $0 Receive pay rise as after-tax salary and invest outside super Salary sacrifice pay rise into super Assumptions:. A 20 year comparison based on $5,000 pa of pre-tax salary. Both the super and non-super investments earn a total pre-tax return of 7.7% pa (split 3.3% income and 4.4% growth). Investment income is franked at 30%. All values are after income tax (at 15% in super and 38.5% outside super) and CGT (including discounting). Medicare Levy is 1.5% (this projection does not allow for the increase to 2% that occurs on 1 July 2014). Note: No lump sum tax is payable on the super investment as William will be 65 at the end of the investment period. SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  11. Super EOFY strategies • Make tax deductible super contributions • To be able to claim a portion of your personal super contributions as a tax deduction, you need to complete a valid ‘notice of intent’ form and give it to your super fund within specific timeframes. • You also need to get an acknowledgement back from your super fund that the notice has been received and accepted by them. • If you don’t you may not be able to claim a deduction. (You also need to be eligible to make a contribution). SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  12. Consider contribution caps • Salary sacrifice and personal deductible contributions count, along with other amounts, to ‘concessional’ contribution (CC) cap • The concessional cap is $25,000 in 2013-14* • The caps are annual amount and you can’t carry forward any unused amount to another financial year • It’s really important you make the most of the cap each year, particularly if you are approaching retirement • Opportunity to make larger ‘last minute’ concessionally taxed contributions no longer available • People who earn in excess of $300K pay an additional 15% tax on concessional superannuation made over the $300K threshold and within the cap * For people aged 58 or under on 30/6/13 and $35,000 for people aged 59 or over on 30/6/13. From 1 July 2014, the general concessional cap will be increased to $30,000. For people aged 49 and over on 30/6/14, their concessional cap will be $35,000 from 1 July 2014. SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  13. Cap implications • Excess concessional contributions for the 2013-14 financial year and beyond are generally returned to the member and taxed at their maximum tax rate (MTR). An “Excess Concessional Contributions Charge” will also be applied by the ATO. • Review this year’s contributions and remember that a range of other items count towards this cap, including: • super guarantee contributions, including those from more than one employer • concessional contributions made to fund insurance in super • Review your contributions from 1 July 2013, particularly if you are an employee as the superannuation guarantee rate has increasedfrom 9% to 9.25%*. *The SG rate is planned to increase to 9.5% on 1 July 2014 however legislation is currently before parliament to defer the increase. If enacted this will mean that the rate will remain at 9.25% for the 2014/15 year. SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  14. Super EOFY strategies • Get a super top up from the Government SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  15. Co-contribution case study • Ryan is aged 40 • Employed on salary of $37,000 pa • Wants to invest $1,000 in after tax salary each year until he retires at 60 SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  16. Co-contribution case study 1 Includes a Medicare levy of 1.5%. SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  17. $100,000 $80,000 $60,893 Results (after 20 years) $60,000 + $20,928 $39,965 $40,000 $20,000 $0 $1,000 pa invested outside super(no co-contribution) $1,000 pa investedinside super(includes co-contribution) Assumptions:. A 20 year comparison based on an after-tax investment of $1,000 pa. Both the super and non-super investments earn a total pre-tax return of 7.7% pa (split 3.3% income and 4.4% growth). Investment income is franked at 30%. All values are after income tax (at 15% in super and 34% outside super) and CGT (including discounting). Medicare Levy is 1.5% (this projection does not allow for the increase to 2% that occurs on 1 July 2014). Note: No lump sum tax is payable on the super investment as Ryan will be 60 at the end of the investment period. SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  18. Super EOFY strategies • Boost partner’s super and reduce your tax • For people who have a spouse who earns less than $13,800 pa • Make after-tax super contribution on their behalf • Get tax offset of up to $540 • Grow spouse’s super and reduce your tax SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  19. Buy life and total and permanent disability insurance in super Self-employed Claim super contributions as tax deduction Other super EOFY strategies Make insurance more affordable • Concessions can: • Make it cheaper to insure through super, or • Enable you to purchase a higher level of cover Employee Buy insurance in super with pre-tax dollars Eligible for co-contribution Use co-contribution to help pay for future insurance SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  20. Other smart EOFY opportunities Pre-pay expenses • If you want to bring forward tax deductions and pay less tax this financial year you could: • Pre-pay annual premiums for an income protection policy held in your own name • Pre-pay up to 12 months interest on an investment loan (usually only available with fixed rate facilities) SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

Cash out non-super investment • Make personal super contribution • Earnings in super fund taxed at max. rate of 15% • Earnings from investment in own name taxed at up to 46.5%1 • Reduce tax on investment earnings by up to 31.5% • Consider capital gains tax payable when selling asset Other super EOFY strategies Investment earnings • Pay less on investment earnings 1 Includes a Medicare levy of 1.5%. SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014

  22. Other smart EOFY strategies Manage CGT • If you make a capital gain on asset sales this financial year, consider: • triggering a capital loss by selling another investment that no longer suits your needs, or • making a super contribution and claiming amount as tax deduction (if eligible) • Both strategies could be used to offset capital gain and save tax SMART EOFY STRATEGIES | 2014
