SECTION 16-182   DEFINITION OF REPORTABLE EMPLOYER SUPERANNUATION CONTRIBUTION  

16-182(1)  


A reportable employer superannuation contribution , for an individual for an income year, is an amount that has been, is, or will be contributed in respect of the income year:


(a) by an employer of the individual, or an *associate of the employer, for the individual ' s benefit; and


(b) to a *superannuation fund or an *RSA;

to the extent that either or both of the following paragraphs apply:


(c) the individual has or has had, or might reasonably be expected to have or have had, the capacity to influence the size of the amount;


(d) the individual has or has had, or might reasonably be expected to have or have had, the capacity to influence the way the amount was, is or will be contributed so that his or her assessable income is reduced.

16-182(2)  
However, an amount is not a reportable employer superannuation contribution to the extent that it is included in the individual ' s assessable income for the income year.

16-182(3)  
For the purposes of this section, employer has the expanded meaning given by section 12 of the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992 (assuming that subsection 12(11) of that Act had not been enacted).

16-182(4)  
For the purposes of this section, disregard whether any *superannuation benefits arising from a contribution are payable to a *SIS dependant of the individual if the individual dies before or after becoming entitled to receive the benefits.

16-182(5)  


For the purposes of paragraph (1)(c), treat the individual as neither having, nor being able reasonably to be expected to have, the capacity to influence the size of the amount if:


(a) the employer or *associate is required to contribute the amount by:


(i) an *industrial instrument; or

(ii) the rules of a *superannuation fund; and


(b) the individual does not and did not have, and is not able reasonably to be expected to have or have had, the capacity to influence the content of that instrument or those rules, to the extent that the instrument or rules relate to:


(i) the requirement to contribute the amount; or

(ii) the size of the amount.
