Additional income information - Working for Families Tax Credits
From the year starting 1 April 2011 the definition of family income for Working for Families Tax Credits has been extended. You are now required to supply details of income received from the following sources:
Attributable trustee income is all income for the year of a trust that hasn't been distributed as beneficiary income. Trustee income will be attributed only to settlors of a trust. The settlors are individuals who establish or contribute funds to the trust.
If you receive fringe benefits and you or your associates (e.g. the family trust) are shareholder-employees of the company you work for and you or your associates hold voting interests of 50% or more then you need to include the fringe benefits in your family income. The value of the fringe benefit is the tax-inclusive value of the benefit.
This includes an amount of income attributed by a portfolio investment entity (PIE) to the principal caregiver or their spouse or partner, except if the PIE is a superannuation fund or a retirement savings scheme (e.g. KiwiSaver).
This includes all passive income such as interest, rents or beneficiary income, received by a dependent child above a threshold of $ 500 per year, per child.
If your spouse or partner, who is not a tax resident, is earning an income overseas, from 1 April 2011 you will need to include their worldwide income as part of your family income.
This includes salary and wages that are exempt from income tax under specific international agreements in New Zealand. (e.g. employees of international organisations such as the United Nations or the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
This includes tax-exempt overseas pensions and 50% of the amount of pension or annuity payments from life insurance policies or a superannuation fund, excluding NZ Super.
These are payments from any other person or entities that are used for the family’s day-to-day living expenses. If the total amount is more than $ 5,000 for the tax year, then the total amount must be included as family income.
This includes any deposits made by you, a company controlled by you or your trust to an agricultural, fishing or forestry business income equalisation scheme account at Inland Revenue.
Shareholders owing at least 10% of a company where five or fewer shareholders own greater than 50% of the company will be required to include their proportionate share of net income of the company (in addition to dividends received from the company)
Distributions received from superannuation schemes and KiwiSaver (other than on retirement) may be included in family income
Shareholder employees owning 50% or more of the company (including interests of associated persons) will need to include attributable fringe benefits (i.e. motor vehicles, low interest loans, subsidised transport > $ 1k, contributions to insurance/sickness/accident/death funds >$ 1k and other benefits >$ 2k).
From the 2015 income year, employees and non-controlling shareholders will be required to include motor vehicles (where the person would have been entitled to more employment income if they had not chosen the motor vehicle) and the value of short term charge facilities.
Losses from other businesses / investments / rental properties do not reduce income for the purposes of working out the Working for Families tax credits entitlement.
