Australian Superannuation Funds
Protecting Your Retirement Benefits from U.S. Taxation
In Australia, every citizen is entitled to receive income in their retirement through their superannuation funds. It is similar to a 401(k), except that all employees, as well as employers, are required to contribute to the superannuation fund. Contributions to the superannuation are generally tax exempted in Australia. However, for Australians who reside in the U.S. either on a Visa, green card or even as a U.S. citizen, it is possible that your superannuation fund may be subjected to certain tax liabilities. That is why it is important that Australian expats in the U.S. hire a skilled international tax attorney to shield their superannuation fund from tax penalties and interests. At Castro & Co., we are highly recommended by countless tax firms in Australia to help their clients who are confronted with tax issues concerning Australian superannuation funds. We provide sophisticated tax planning and results-driven counsel to ensure that clients receive their rightful retirement benefits.

Since Australian superannuation is a retirement benefit and there is no way for individuals to access the money until they reach retirement age, many Australian expats in the country assume that the U.S. government should have no concern over it. However, Australian superannuation funds should be included in your Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts or FBAR. We know that this sounds like a risky proposition, but with proper and competent tax planning, your retirement benefits should be just fine.
If you have an Australian superannuation fund, we recommend that you reach out to Castro & Co. as soon as you can.
