Transfer within six months

Section: 10.2

If the transfer/withdrawal of overseas retirement benefits takes place within six months from the date the member becomes a tax resident of Australia and the benefit relates only to service overseas whilst a non-resident, then the transfer is not assessable to the super fund or the individual.

100% of the transferred amount is treated as a non-concessional contribution in the receiving Australian super fund and subject to preservation.
