         (2)   If the payment split is a second or later payment split applicable to the splittable payment, this Division applies as modified in accordance with Schedule 7.

Note   Section 90MX of the Act makes provision in relation to the order in which multiple payment splits that apply to the same splittable payment are to be calculated.

[36]         Subregulations 47 (2) and (3)

substitute

         (2)   After each adjustment period in relation to the superannuation interest, the trustee must, if necessary, adjust the base amount in accordance with the rate of interest that applied to the superannuation interest in that adjustment period under regulation 48.

Note   Depending on the rate of interest that applied to the superannuation interest in an adjustment period, the base amount may be adjusted by a positive amount or a negative amount or, if the rate was nil, not adjusted.

         (3)   For this regulation and regulation 48, an adjustment period, for a superannuation interest, is:

                (a)    if a splittable payment becomes payable in respect of the interest before the end of the first year after the relevant operative time in that year — the period beginning at the beginning of the relevant operative time and ending at the end of the day before the splittable payment becomes payable; or

               (b)    if a splittable payment does not become payable in respect of the interest before the end of the first year after the relevant operative time in that year:

                          (i)    the period beginning at the beginning of the relevant operative time in that year and ending at the end of that year; and

                         (ii)    after that period:

                                   (A)     each year (if any) in which a splittable payment does not become payable in respect of the interest; and

                                   (B)     in the year in which a splittable payment becomes payable in respect of the interest — the period beginning at the beginning of that year and ending at the end of the day before the splittable payment becomes payable.

         (4)   In subregulation (3):

year means:

                (a)    for a superannuation interest in a regulated superannuation fund that has a year of income within the meaning of subsection 10 (1) of the SIS Act — a year of income; and

               (b)    for any other superannuation interest — a financial year.

[37]         Regulation 48

substitute

48            Interest rates for adjustment of base amount

         (1)   The rate of interest that applies to a superannuation interest in an adjustment period is the interest rate that applies to the interest for the adjustment period under this regulation.

         (2)   Subject to subregulation (5), if the whole of the superannuation interest is an accumulation interest (other than an interest in a self managed superannuation fund), the interest rate for the adjustment period is:

                (a)    for an interest in a regulated superannuation fund, an approved deposit fund or an RSA:

                          (i)    the rate of any allotment (being the allotment of a positive amount, a nil amount or a negative amount) to the member spouse of net earnings of the eligible superannuation plan for the adjustment period; or

                         (ii)    if there has been no such allotment to the member spouse for the adjustment period, the rate mentioned in subregulation (3) for the adjustment period; and

               (b)    if the interest is in an exempt public sector superannuation scheme or a superannuation fund that is not a regulated superannuation fund:

                          (i)    the rate of any allocation (being the allocation of a positive amount, a nil amount or a negative amount) to the member spouse of investment earnings (however described) of the eligible superannuation plan for the adjustment period; or

                         (ii)    if there has been no such allocation to the member spouse for the adjustment period, the rate mentioned in subregulation (3) for the adjustment period.

         (3)   Despite subregulations (4) and (5) and subject to subregulation (6), if the superannuation interest is in a self managed superannuation fund, the interest rate for the adjustment period is the percentage change, rounded up or down to 1 decimal place (rounding up if the second decimal place has a value of 5 or more), in the original estimate of full-time adult ordinary time earnings for all persons in Australia, published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in the document entitled ‘Average Weekly Earnings, Australia (Catalogue 6302.0)’, that applies for that adjustment period, plus 2.5 percentage points.

         (4)   Subject to subregulation (5), if any component of the superannuation interest is a defined benefit interest, the interest rate for the adjustment period is:

                (a)    subject to subregulation (6) and if paragraph (b) does not apply — the rate mentioned in subregulation (3); or

               (b)    if, for the adjustment period, the amount of the total benefits payable in respect of the defined benefit interest is calculated by applying a growth factor to a specified amount — that growth factor.

Example for paragraph (4) (b)

The interest rate mentioned in paragraph (4) (b) would apply for an adjustment period to a defined benefit interest of a member spouse in respect of which the benefit is defined by reference to the member spouse’s final salary and length of service if, in the adjustment period, the interest is converted to a withdrawal or resignation benefit and subsequently adjusted annually by the interest earned by the plan in which the interest is held, or another factor such as the consumer price index or average weekly ordinary time earnings.

         (5)   If different interest rates apply to different components of the superannuation interest (including an accumulation interest) in the adjustment period, the interest rate for the adjustment period is the weighted average crediting rate (which may be a positive rate, a rate of nil, or a negative rate) that applies to the superannuation interest in the adjustment period, expressed as a percentage, being the total amount of interest that applied in respect of all components of the superannuation interest in the adjustment period divided by the total value of the benefits in respect of all components of the superannuation interest at the beginning of the adjustment period.

Example

A member of an eligible superannuation plan has a superannuation interest the value of which, at the beginning of an adjustment period, is $60 000 (made up of personal contributions and interest valued at $20 000 and employer-financed benefits on resignation valued at $40 000). If the amount of the personal contributions and interest earned interest at the rate of 10% in an adjustment period, and the amount of the employer-financed benefits earned interest at the rate of 3% (the rate of the CPI) in the adjustment period, the weighted average crediting rate that would apply to the superannuation interest for the adjustment period would be 5.33% calculated as follows:

·       The value of the interest that applied to the personal contributions and interest in the adjustment period was $2 000 (ie, $20 000 ´ 10%).

·       The value of the interest that applied to the employer-financed benefits in the adjustment period was $1 200 (ie, $40 000 ´ 3%).

·       The total interest earned in the adjustment period was therefore $3 200 (ie, $2 000 + $1 200).

·       The weighted average crediting rate that applies to the superannuation interest for the adjustment period is the total interest for the adjustment period ($3 200) divided by the total benefits at the beginning of the adjustment period ($60 000), expressed as a percentage — 5.33%.

         (6)   For subregulation (3) and paragraph (4) (a):

                (a)    if an adjustment period is exactly 12 months, the publication by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) of an estimate of full-time adult ordinary time earnings for the 12 month period ending most recently before the end of the adjustment period is taken to be the interest rate for the adjustment period; and

               (b)    if an adjustment period is more than 9 months but less than 12 months, the publication by the ABS of an estimate of full-time adult ordinary time earnings for the 9 month period ending most recently before the end of the adjustment period is taken to be the interest rate for the adjustment period; and

                (c)    if an adjustment period is more than 6 months but less than 9 months, the publication by the ABS of an estimate of full-time adult ordinary time earnings for the 6 month period ending most recently before the end of the adjustment period is taken to be the interest rate for the adjustment period; and

               (d)    if an adjustment period is more than 3 months but less than 6 months, the publication by the ABS of an estimate of full-time adult ordinary time earnings for the 3 month period ending most recently before the end of the adjustment period is taken to be the interest rate for the adjustment period; and

                (e)    if an adjustment period is less than 3 months, the publication by the ABS of an estimate of full-time adult ordinary time earnings for the 3 month period ending most recently before the end of the preceding adjustment period is taken to be the interest rate for the adjustment period.

Schedule 1A      Method for calculating value of non-member spouse’s entitlement of percentage-only interest in payment phase

(subregulation 14N (7))

1              Application of Schedule 1A

                This Schedule sets out the method for calculating, for the purposes of regulation 14N, the value at a particular time of a non-member spouse’s entitlement in respect of a percentage-only interest that is in the payment phase.

2              Method

         (1)   If no benefit other than a pension is payable to the member spouse in respect of the interest, the value at a particular time of the non-member spouse’s entitlement in respect of the interest is calculated as follows:

where:

Accrued benefit multiple at separation is the member spouse’s accrued benefit multiple, as defined in the governing rules of the eligible superannuation plan in which the superannuation interest is held, at the date when the member spouse and non‑member spouse separated or, if there have been 2 or more separations, at the date of the most recent separation.

Accrued benefit multiple at payment is the member spouse’s accrued benefit multiple, as defined in the governing rules of the eligible superannuation plan in which the superannuation interest is held, at the date when the new interest is created, or the amount is transferred or rolled over or paid to the non‑member spouse.

X is the percentage specified in the relevant superannuation agreement, flag lifting agreement or splitting order.

YP is the amount of pension payable each year to the member spouse.

Py+m is the pension valuation factor under Schedule 4 that applies to the particular pension payable to the member spouse at the member spouse’s age at the date when the new interest is created, or the amount is transferred or rolled over or paid to the non-member spouse.

r is:

                (a)    if there is a surviving spouse of the member spouse — the reversionary percentage that would be payable to the surviving spouse if the member spouse had died on the day when the new interest is created, or the amount is transferred or rolled over or paid to the non-member spouse; and

               (b)    in any other case — zero.

Ry+m is the reversion valuation factor calculated in accordance with subclause (3).

F is the amount of any fees payable by the non-member spouse under regulation 59.

         (2)   If another benefit, in addition to a pension, is payable to the member spouse in respect of the interest, the value at a particular time of the non‑member spouse’s entitlement in respect of the interest is calculated as follows:

where:

Accrued benefit multiple at separation has the same meaning as in subclause (1).

Accrued benefit multiple at payment has the same meaning as in subclause (1).

X has the same meaning as in subclause (1).

YP has the same meaning as in subclause (1).

Py+m has the same meaning as in subclause (1).

r has the same meaning as in subclause (1).

Ry+m has the same meaning as in subclause (1).

OB is the amount of the other benefit payable to the member spouse in respect of the interest multiplied by the relevant discount valuation factor that applies under clause 4 of Schedule 6.

F is the amount of any fees payable by the non-member spouse under regulation 59.

         (3)   For subclauses (1) and (2), the reversion valuation factor (Ry+m) at the particular time is:

                where:

Ry is the reversion valuation factor mentioned in clause 3 of this Schedule that applies to the pension and the member spouse’s age in completed years at the date when the new interest is created, or the amount is transferred or rolled over or paid to the non-member spouse.

m is the number of completed months of the member spouse’s age that are not included in the completed years at the date mentioned in the definition of the factor Ry.

Ry+1 is the reversion valuation factor mentioned in clause 3 of this Schedule that applies to the pension and the member spouse’s age at the completion of the next year after the year mentioned in the definition of the factor Ry.

         (4)   For the purpose of applying the factor Py+m in the formula in subclauses (1) and (2), a reference in Schedule 4 to ‘the relevant date’ is to be read as if it were a reference to ‘the date when the new interest was created or the amount was transferred or rolled over or paid to the non-member spouse’.

         (5)   For the purpose of applying the factor OB in the formula in subclause (2):

                (a)    a reference in clause 4 of Schedule 6 to ‘the lump sum’ or ‘a lump sum’ is to be read as if it were a reference to ‘the other benefit payable to the member spouse in respect of the superannuation interest’; and

               (b)    the minimum deferral period, in relation to the other benefit payable to the member spouse in respect of the superannuation interest, is the minimum period of time until the other benefit is payable.

3              Reversion valuation factors

         (1)   The table in this clause sets out the reversion valuation factors.

         (2)   The factors in columns 2 and 3 apply if the pension is indexed in accordance with the consumer price index.

         (3)   The factors in columns 4 and 5 apply if the pension is indexed in accordance with a general wage index (for example, average weekly earnings, or average weekly ordinary time earnings, published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics).
