Read this before you fall prey to illegal operations
Australia has strict rules in place surrounding access to superannuation and there have been reports of taxpayers being targeted by dodgy operators who are promising early access to superannuation for a fee.
There are very limited circumstances where the law allows you to access your superannuation early and include, for example:
– permanent departure from Australia
– terminal illness
– permanent incapacity
– balance of $200 or less
In most cases, early access to superannuation is illegal and costly for taxpayers, with tax complications such as the superannuation becoming part of assessable income.
Don’t fall prey to illegal superannuation operations. Offers of early access to superannuation for a fee should be approached with caution and reported to the ATO.
