Super will still make sense

The Coalition has changed how we think about taxing pension accounts, but whatever happens after July 2, there are still big benefits on offer.

Summary: While the Coalition’s super plans do shift the goal posts for what are ‘tax free’ retirement savings, if these policies make their way through the senate there will still be room for big super balances. The CGT of ten per cent and 15 per cent on earnings in an accumulation account is still a far better set of circumstances than holding assets outside of super.

Key take out: New rules are not the death of big super balances. More tax, yes, but super will still make sense.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Superannuation.
