Investment Bonds - Are they suitable for me? Nov 28, 2014

Investment Bonds are an interesting investment vehicle which may suit investors in a range of different situations.


Investment Bonds are a tax paid investment, with a nominal 30% tax-paid rate. This means you would not need to include details of the investment, including earnings, in your annual tax return until a withdrawal is made. Earnings become fully tax-paid after 10 years. This means that the investment can been withdrawn at any time after 10 years and the proceeds will be tax-free, provided that the ‘125% rule’ has not been breached. If any withdrawals are made prior to 10 years, a 30% tax offset can be applied against any personal tax on income or gains.


There is no limit to the contributions in the first 12 months of the investment however in future years they are limited to the 125% rule. This rule limits the contributions in the second year and beyond to 125% of the previous year’s contributions.

Breaking News - Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card Nov 19, 2014

Legislation to deem account based pensions from 1 January 2015 for the purposes of determining eligibility for the Commonwealth Seniors Health Card (CSHC) passed the Senate on 17 November 2014. The Social Services and Other Legislation Amendment (2014 Budget Measures No. 6) Bill 2014 passed without amendment and awaits royal assent.

The new legislation deems account based pensions from 1 January 2015 unless the account based pension qualifies for grandfathering. Grandfathering applies where the client is the holder of a CSHC immediately prior to 1 January 2015 and commences the account based pension before 1 January 2015. This is great news as it means existing CSHC Card holders with an Account Based Pension will retain the card as long as nothing else in their circumstances changes.
