Foreign super withdrawals and transfers made between 1 January 2000 and 1 April 2014 have different rules to follow.

There are two options to account for this income.

The 15% option

You can include 15% of the lump sum as income for your 2013–14 or 2014–15 Individual income tax return IR3.

You may qualify for the temporary tax exemption period for new residents.

The FIF rules option

You can ask us to amend your previous tax returns based on the tax rules that applied for those years. You may have to pay interest and penalties.

We recommend talking to a tax agent if you’re considering this option.
