About the calculator
The aim of the Superannuation Benefit Component calculator is to assist superannuation funds to determine the proportions or percentages of the tax free component and taxable component of a superannuation interest . These values can then be applied to calculate the tax free and taxable component of a superannuation benefit.
The calculation is required as part of the changes to superannuation which are effective from 1 July 2007.
From 1 July 2007, a superannuation benefit will consist of a tax free component and/or a taxable component. Generally, the amounts of the tax free and taxable components of a superannuation benefit are determined using the proportioning rule.
