Superannuation is a highly tax-effective vehicle for the accumulation of retirement wealth. This paper explores some of the tax concessions available to self-managed superannuation funds and discuss the calculation of exempt current pension income. It includes case studies for fund losses and segregation, and some tips for maximising your exempt current pension income (ECPI). In addition it provides an update on new legislation affecting ECPI calculations including the continuation of pensions on the death of a member and the proposed $100,000 pension income limit. It finishes off with a discussion of longevity and how this impacts on planning for retirement.
