REGULATION 307-125.02   COMPONENTS OF SUPERANNUATION BENEFITS AFTER DEATH OF RECIPIENT OF SUPERANNUATION INCOME STREAM  

307-125.02(1)  
For paragraph 307-125(4)(a) of the Act, subregulation (2) specifies an alternative method for determining the components of a superannuation benefit to which that subregulation applies if:


(a) immediately before the death of a person (the deceased ), a superannuation interest (the relevant superannuation interest ) was supporting a superannuation income stream (the original superannuation income stream ) payable to the deceased; and


(b) the original superannuation income stream did not automatically revert to another person on the deceased ' s death; and


(c) no amounts, other than investment earnings, have been added to the relevant superannuation interest on or after the deceased ' s death; and


(d) one or both of the following occurs after the deceased ' s death:


(i) a superannuation death benefit that is a superannuation lump sum is paid using only an amount from the relevant superannuation interest;

(ii) a superannuation income stream (the new superannuation income stream ) is commenced using only an amount applied from the relevant superannuation interest.

307-125.02(2)  
The method statement sets out how to work out the tax free component and taxable component of:


(a) a superannuation death benefit mentioned in subparagraph (1)(d)(i); or


(b) a superannuation benefit paid from a superannuation interest that supports the new superannuation income stream mentioned in subparagraph (1)(d)(ii). Method statement


Step 1.

Reduce the amount of the benefit by the extent, if any, to which the benefit is attributable to any of the following:

  • (a) (Repealed by FRLI No F2017L00321)
  • (b) an amount paid on or after the death of the deceased under a policy of insurance on the life of the deceased;
  • (c) an amount arising on or after the death of the deceased from self-insurance.

  • Step 2.

    The tax free component of the benefit is the amount that represents the same proportion of the amount resulting from step 1 as the tax free component of the relevant superannuation interest bore to the value of the relevant superannuation interest when the original superannuation income stream commenced.


    Step 3.

    The taxable component of the benefit is the amount of the benefit less the tax free component of the benefit worked out under step 2.
