Actuarial Services  

ABP Certificates

An actuarial certificate is needed under s295-390 of the ITAA97 in order to claim a proportion of the assessable SMSF income as exempt from tax under the unsegregated method. No dataform is needed if you simply email us draft accounts before year end allocations and the general ledger. Alternatively, please use the dataform below.

2021/22 Cost: $77 Inclusive of gst

Defined Pensions

For SMSFs with legacy s1.06(2) Lifetime; s1.06(7) Life Expectancy and s1.06(6) Flexi Pensions.The report checks that the assets meet the high probability requirement going forward and provides the s295-390 ECPI percentage for past year. To save you time we are happy to work from the draft accounts and last year's actuarial report rather than the dataform below.

Min Pension Calcs

If a pension does not meet the minimum drawdown requirements, then the current pension income exemption is lost from the beginning of the financial year.

NetActuary has web based calculators that allow you to check these requirements for both Account Based Pensions and Market-Linked/TAPs.

ECPI Method Analysis

From the 2021-22 financial year trustees can choose between alternative ECPI calculation methods where there is deemed segregation. The legislation also cleared up the need to obtain an unncessary ECPI certificate where the fund is fully in retirement phase and has disregarded small fund assets.

If you would like us to prepare an ECPI comparative analysis report to assist with the decision about which method to adopt, please contact Brian. The cost for the report is $99 inclusive of gst.


Transfer Balance Caps

Special valuation (and other) rules apply to capped "defined benefit income streams" (DBIS). Flexi pensions don't fall under these rules. Market-linked pensions may or may not be a DBIS depending on the commencement date.  Currently, market linked pensions have commutation anomolies that need to be corrected by legislation.

Where the defined benefit income stream exceeds $100,000, 50% of the excess is included as assessable income and taxed at the individual's marginal tax rate.
