Pensions: Exploring changes in the treatment of pensions paper

Published on 29 Aug 13 by NATIONAL DIVISION, THE TAX INSTITUTE

The treatment of pensions has undergone radical change in recent times, and continues to do so. This paper explores:

  • taxation of fund income earned on pension assets
  • implications of under-paying minimum pension payments
  • continuation of the “pension phase” tax concession after the death of a pensioner
  • auto-reversionary pensions and binding death benefit nominations – which should be used and which trumps the other?
