2013 Federal Budget and the superannuation industry 

The following commentary deals with the Budget announcements and the earlier announcements of 5 April 2013, which followed growing media attention and public debate.

Key insights

  • From 1 January 2016, the government will extend the requirement to pay monthly Pay As You Go (PAYG) income tax instalments to other large entities in the PAYG system, including superannuation funds.
  • Against a background of recent media attention, the government will seek to introduce legislation from 1 July 2013 to prevent investors engaging in 'dividend washing' and, in effect, trading franking credits.
