Does a person satisfy the sugarcane farmers' income test?

Section 49Y VEA

VEA ? (go back)

This section outlines policy concerning application of the sugarcane farmers' income test to determine whether a sugarcane farmer's income in the last three financial years before transfer of a property is less than the rate of age service pension applicable to that sugarcane farmer.


A service pension is an income support payment broadly equivalent to the social security age and disability support pensions. It may be paid once a veteran or partner has reached the nominated age or is incapacitated for work.
