Budget 2013: Monthly PAYG instalments

In an unexpected announcement, the Government has now made it a requirement for all large entities in the PAYG instalment system to make monthly PAYG income tax instalments. The monthly PAYG instalment system will therefore be extended to include trusts, superannuation funds, sole traders and large investors.

The system will be phased in between 1 January 2014 and 1 January 2017 and will come into force as follows:

-Corporate tax Entity with a turnover over $1 billion: 1 January 2014

-Corporate tax entity with turnover over $100 million: 1 January 2015

– Corporate tax entity with a turnover over $20 million and other PAYG entities with a turnover over $1 billion: 1 January 2016

– Other PAYG entities with a turnover $20 billion: 1 January 2017.

Transition to retirement

The transition to retirement (TTR) strategy allows you to access some of your super while you continue to work.

You are able to use the TTR strategy if you are aged 55 to 60. You can use it to supplement your income if you reduce your work hours or boost your super and save on tax while you keep working full time.

  • Starting a TTR pension: To start your TTR pension, transfer some of your super to an account-based pension. You have to keep some money in your super account so that you can continue to receive your employer's compulsory contributions as well as any voluntary contributions you may be making.
  • Government benefits and TTR: The benefits you or your partner receive might be impacted if you choose to opt for this strategy. How and what exactly will change might become clearer upon discussing this with a Financial Information Service (FIS) officer.
  • Life insurance and TTR: In some cases, the life insurance cover you have with your super may stop or reduce if you start a TTR pension – check this before making any decisions or changes.

TTR can help ease your mind as you transition into retirement but it can be a bit complex. Before you choose whether you want to use TTR to reduce work hours or save on tax, or even if you want to use TTR altogether, you should figure out how this will impact all aspects of your finances.
