Gravitas TAX Solutions


Retirement, Death, Retrenchment

Upon retirement or retrenchment a member of a pension fund or retirement annuity fund has a decision to make regarding how much to take as a cash lump sum. Up to one-third may be taken as a lump sum with the first R550 000 taxed at 0%. The question arises how much to take as a lump sum due to previous retirements/withdrawals. This is where Gravitas can simulate the actual amount of tax payable by the member. This gives you as the financial planner an advantage to save the client on tax payable and optimise their retirement planning. The tax calculation is impossible to do if all information is not available, which it rarely is.



It is also possible to withdraw any part of a pension or provident benefit savings before the pensionable age of 55 if the client should leave the employer depending on their unique situation. The client might be eligible to withdraw from his/her pension fund upon resignation or due to retrenchment. Gravitas gives you as the financial planner the tools to calculate this amount for your clients to ensure maximum tax efficiency.

Why do I need a Simulation Tax Directive?

 1. Tax Payable

Every time when a client withdraws a lump sum from either a Pension fund, Provident fund or Retirement Annuity they might incur tax from SARS

2. Taxed at 0%

The first R550 000 of withdrawals at retirement and the first R 27 500 of withdrawals prior to retirement are taxed at 0%.Thereafter clients will pay tax according to the SARS tax tables.

3. Previous Withdraws

The reason simulation tax directives are so important is that previous withdrawals are taken into account. If a client has previously withdrawn funds from their retirement funds before retirement (e.g. surrendering a retirement annuity) it will be added to the amount taken in the current situation. The problem arises when clients forget or don’t disclose previous withdrawals which results in more tax payable.

4. Improved Planning

Using the Gravitas tax directive simulation enables you as the financial adviser to understand how much was taken as previous withdrawals and to estimate how much tax will be payable on the current retirement / withdrawal / retrenchment and allows you to plan accordingly.
