FirstChoice super to pension transfers

The government made changes to the Taxation of Financial Arrangements (TOFA) rules. These rules govern the tax treatment of gains and losses on financial arrangements.


From 14 October 2016, the way earnings tax is calculated and paid on Term Deposits in super will change. 


For a term deposit we will calculate the portion of interest accrued during the accumulation phase and pay this amount at the time of internal transfer from superannuation to pension in FirstChoice.
