Law of Superannuation in Australia

Superannuation law has been driven by a perplexing array of taxation, compliance and prudential issues. Trustees and their advisers complain, rightly, about the difficulties of operating within this legislative maze. The Law of Superannuation in Australia addresses this urgent need for authoritative guidance on the legal aspects of superannuation.

Respected authors Noel Davis and Michael Chaaya explain, clearly and concisely, the principles of superannuation, trust and taxation law relevant to the administration of superannuation funds. They examine the powers, duties, rights and liabilities of trustees, administration and governing rules, contributions, fund audits, complaint procedures and taxation of benefits. The product also provides relevant superannuation and related legislation.

This product was completely reviewed and re-issued in 2005 in LexisNexis' easy-to-use binder and format, with enhanced content resulting in a more streamlined, current work including essential new material on SuperChoice, licensing and self-managed super funds.
