The Ralph Report: life insurance changes


The changes for Life Insurance Companies are considerably different to those canvassed in the Ralph second discussion paper released in February 1999. One of the major changes from the discussion paper is that there has been a recognition that superannuation should be taxed in the same manner irrespective of the vehicle through which superannuation investment is canvassed, and other changes are contained in the mechanics or administration. Annuitants, pensioners and superannuation fund policyholders will be substantially left alone.
