In the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook in November 2012 a significant change was announced by the Treasurer with respect to pensions and tax in superannuation. This was in response to substantial lobbying by the industry to clarify certain areas of TR 2011/D3 and provide certainty to superannuation fund members. This is a welcome announcement from the Government, however further areas are yet to be confirmed that are important from an estate planning perspective within superannuation and need to be considered in detail.
