10.4.2 Description of Superannuation
In this section
This section contains the general provisions on superannuation and describes its structure.
An ETP is a payment (usually on retirement or termination of employment) which receives concessional tax treatment according to a specified set of rules. It can be transferred to funds which have been granted similar tax concessions by the government.
To roll-over, in relation to an eligible termination payment, means to invest all or part of the payment in an approved superannuation or roll-over fund, according to the requirements of section 27D of the Income Tax Assessment Act, 1936.
