Rollover of Excessive Redundancy Payment (Elligible Termination Payment)


After any tax-free component has been deducted, the balance of the excessive redundancy payment or Eligible Termination Payment (ETP) (assessable amount) is taxed at a concessional rate up to a limit called the ETP cap amount.

From 1 July 2007, you cannot contribute or roll over any excessive redundancy payment (ETPs) you receive
into your super fund, unless they are transitional ETPs.

A excessive redundancy payment you receive is a transitional ETP if it is paid between 1 July 2007 and 30 June 2012 and you were entitled to it due to termination of your employment under one of the following:
  • a written contract
  • an Australian or foreign law, or an instrument under such a law
  • a workplace agreement under the Workplace Relations Act 1996.
The contract, law or instrument under that law, or agreement must be in force at 9 May 2006.
For more information about excessive redundancy payments or ETPs, transitional ETPs and tax rates on excessive redundancy payments see this FREE fact sheet Employment termination payments.
