SECTION 7 INDEXATION 7(1) Indexation of certain amounts for 2004-05 financial year. Section 5 applies in relation to an indexing financial year as if each indexable amount were replaced by the amount worked out using the formula:•
Previous indexable amount X Relevant indexation factorwhere: CMPT previous indexable amount means the indexable amount for the financial year immediately before the indexing financial year. CMPT relevant indexation factor means the indexation factor for the indexing financial year.

If an amount worked out under subsection (1) is an amount of dollars and cents: (a) if the number of cents is less than 50 - the amount is to be rounded down to the nearest whole dollar; or (b) otherwise - the amount is to be rounded up to the nearest whole dollar. 7(3) Indexation factor. The indexation factor for an indexing financial year is the number calculated, to 3 decimal places, using the formula:
Financial year $ $ $ 1997/98 1,046 73,220 88,910 1998/99 1,084 75,856 92,111 1999/2000 1,118 78,208 94,966 2000/01 1,165 81,493 98,955 2001/02 1,219 85,242 103,507 2002/03 1,295 90,527 109,924 2003/04 1,355 94,691 114,981 2004/05 1,709.20 99,710 121,075]Note: The Superannuation Laws Amendment (Abolition of Surcharge) Act 2005 (No 102 of 2005) abolishes the surcharge for superannuation contributions and termination payments made on or after 1 July 2005.
