8 Gifting period

For the purpose of paragraph (b) of the definition of assets in clause 4 of Part 2 of Schedule 27 of the Act, the gifting period is the period that commences 5 years before the date of means assessment.

9 Allowable gifts

(1)

For the purpose of paragraph (b) of the definition of assets in clause 4 of Part 2 of Schedule 27 of the Act, allowable gifts are gifts of real or personal property (for example, money) gifted during the gifting period that—

(a)

are gifted by any of the following persons:

(i)

the person being means assessed:

(ii)

exceeding the gifting amount but which may be offset as prescribed in subclause (2).

(2)

If during any year of the gifting period the person being means assessed makes gifts of real or personal property that have a total value exceeding the gifting amount, then the difference in value between the total value of the gifts gifted in that year and the gifting amount may be offset against the balance of the gifting amount in each of the remaining subsequent years of the gifting period, if any.

(3)

For the purpose of subclause (2) balance of the gifting amount in each of the remaining subsequent years of the gifting period is the total of the gifting amounts for each of those years less the total value of allowable gifts gifted in those years.

(4)

If the person being means assessed and that person’s spouse or partner are both in long-term residential care, then the value of any gift made jointly by that person and that person’s spouse or partner is to be apportioned equally between that person and that person’s spouse or partner.

Regulation 9(1)(b)(i): amended, on 1 July 2011, by regulation 4 of the Social Security (Long-term Residential Care) Amendment Regulations (No 3) 2011 (SR 2011/180).

9A Gift in recognition of care

If all allowable gifts gifted during the gifting period have a total value less than $30,000, a gift in recognition of care that meets the criteria in subclause (2) is to be treated as an allowable gift.

(2)

The criteria for a gift in recognition of care are that the gift—

(a)

(3)

If the person being means assessed and that person’s spouse or partner are both in long-term residential care, then the value of any gift in recognition of care gifted jointly by that person and that person’s spouse or partner in respect of the care they both received from the same person may be apportioned equally between the person being means assessed and that person’s spouse or partner.

9B Deprivation of property and income

For the purposes of section 147A of the Act, instances of deprivation of property or income include, but are not limited to, the following:

(a)

gifts that are gifted in the 12-month period prior to the commencement of the gifting period, or in any 12-month period preceding that period, to the extent that the total value of the gifts in each such period exceeds $27,000:

Example

In the year before the commencement of the gifting period the person being means assessed and that person’s spouse jointly make gifts having a total value of $100,000.

The person being means assessed and his or her spouse may be treated as having deprived themselves of $73,000 in respect of the gifts.

(b)

a disposition of property at any time before the commencement of the gifting period for no consideration, or for a consideration less than the market value of the property at the time of disposition, may be treated as a gift for the purposes of paragraph (a):

Example

Two years before the commencement of the gifting period the person being means assessed and that person’s partner transfer the $300,000 house that they jointly own to a family member for $100,000. One year before the commencement of the gifting period the person being means assessed and that person’s partner gift $50,000 to another family member.

The person being means assessed and his or her partner may be treated as having deprived themselves of $196,000 in respect of the disposition and the gift (being the sum of $200,000 less $27,000 for the disposition of the house and $50,000 less $27,000 for the monetary gift).

(c)

a disposition of property during the gifting period for no consideration, or for a consideration less than the market value of the property at the time of disposition:

Example

During the gifting period the person being means assessed sells his or her car for $10,000. The market value of the car at the time of sale was $20,000.

The person being means assessed may be treated as having deprived himself or herself of property to the extent of $10,000 in respect of the car sale.

(d)

a failure at any time to exercise any right or entitlement to demand a payment:

Example

The spouse of the person being means assessed makes a loan to another person with interest on the loan being payable on demand. The spouse of the person being means assessed never makes a demand for the interest.

The spouse of the person being means assessed may be treated as having deprived himself or herself of interest to the extent of the amount of interest that is payable on demand.

(e)

a waiver of a right at any time to receive any entitlement or payment:

Example

The person being means assessed and that person’s partner jointly own a rental property. The tenants of that property fail to pay the rent payable under the tenancy agreement. The person being means assessed and that person’s partner take no action to recover the unpaid rent.

The person being means assessed and his or her partner may be treated as having deprived themselves of income to the extent of the unpaid rent.

(f)

an investment at any time in non-income-earning assets:

Example

The person being means assessed deposits savings in a non-interest-bearing bank account.

The person being means assessed may be treated as having deprived himself or herself of income to the extent of income that could have been earned on the savings if the savings had been invested in an interest-bearing bank account.

a capital value required for determining the value of the land under regulation 9D does not appear on the district valuation roll; or

(b)

either the chief executive or the person being means assessed considers that the value of the land determined under regulation 9D is not the true value of the land.

(a)

the value according to evidence that the chief executive considers to be the best evidence of the value of the land on the date of the means assessment; or

the value of the other land being determined according to paragraph (a); and

(ii)

the proportion being determined by the chief executive.
