        • (i) the minimum prescribed amount that the employee must contribute:

        • (ii) the maximum prescribed amount that the employer would be required to contribute if the member were to contribute the maximum prescribed amount:

        • (i) the employee is legally entitled to require the employer to contribute that amount on his or her behalf; and

        • (ii) the trust deed of the scheme provides for the minimum amount required by section 147(1)(c) to vest completely in the employee no later than the time when the employee begins his or her sixth year as a member of the scheme; and

      • (d) any amount contributed to the scheme by an employer in respect of an employee must be calculated, for the purposes of the minimum amount required by section 147(1)(c), before any ESCT payable under the ESCT rules is deducted.

      Example

      Company A provides access to a superannuation scheme for its employees. The trust deed provides that employees, if they decide to become members, must contribute at either 1% or 3% of annual gross base salary.

      The scheme complies with the rule as to the 4% minimum contribution as follows:

      Minimum amount employee member must contribute

       

      1%

      Maximum amount that employer must contribute in respect of employee member
