Bankruptcy – An introduction to income contributions

Bankruptcy – An introduction to income contributions

The vast majority of people do not have to pay income contributions from their wages during bankruptcy as the ‘trigger points’ for when you have to start paying income contributions are quite high.

A person with no dependants can take home (earn after-tax)  $1,188.25 per week and not have to pay income contributions to their bankrupt estate.

Where a person’s income exceeds the ‘trigger point’ or threshold amount, half of each after-tax dollar earned above the threshold is to be paid to the bankrupt estate, and the other half is retained by the bankrupt person.
The after-tax threshold amounts that must be exceeded before income contributions will have to be paid are detailed below. They vary depending on the number of dependents you have:

Income contributions during bankruptcy are calculated based on your income during each ‘bankruptcy year’ and not ‘tax years’.

 

No. of dependants After-Tax Per Annum Threshold Amount After-Tax Per Weekly Threshold Amount
0 $61,789 $1,188.25
1 $72,911.02 $1,402.13
2 $78,472.03 $1,509.07
3 $81,561.48 $1,568.49
4 $82,797.26 $1,592.25
Over 4 $84.033.04 $1,616.02

 

Year 1 10 March 2021 to 9 March 2022
Year 2 10 March 2022 to 9 March 2023
Year 3 10 March 2023 to 9 March 2024

It is important to note that bankruptcy income, for the purpose of calculating whether the income exceeds the threshold amount, is not calculated in the same manner as how taxable income is calculated.

Your bankruptcy income will include:

  • Wages and salary from all jobs
  • Tax refunds (except the amount that relates to the pre-bankruptcy year)
  • Taxable fringe benefits
  • Salary sacrifice arrangements
  • Income received from superannuation, annuities, and pensions
  • Business profits
  • Loans from associated entities
  • Income you earn which is paid to someone else (including to a company or trust)
  • Superannuation contributions in excess of 9.5% made by an employer that arise from an industrial agreement solely between you and your employer
  • Income earned overseas

Expenses allowed, to determine your bankruptcy income, are expenses required to be paid to earn the income. Non-specific expenses that may be allowed by the Australian Taxation Office are not allowed to determine your income under the Bankruptcy Act. Examples of expenses that would not be allowed include:

  • Extra payments to superannuation
  • Discretionary expenditure
  • Depreciation
  • Expenses of a capital nature*

*Expenses are determined on a case by case basis

To be able to claim a person as a dependant and obtain the benefit of a higher income threshold, the dependant must meet the following criteria:

  • Reside with you, and
  • Be wholly or partially dependant on you for economic support, and
  • Not have an income of more than $3,397 per annum

Below are some examples of how an income contribution would be calculated. NOTE: Examples are based on 2020 income thresholds

a) Tom has no dependants and an after-tax income of $50,000 per annum. Tom\’s income contribution liability will be:

After-tax income $50,000.00
Less:
Income threshold – no dependants $57,239
Amount after-tax income exceeds threshold $Nil

Tom’s income is less than the threshold. During the first year of bankruptcy, Tom’s after-tax income that he retains is $50,000 and he does not have to pay income contributions to his bankrupt estate.

b) James has no dependants and an after-tax income of $64,000 per annum. James\’ income contribution liability will be:

After-tax income $64,000
Less:
Income threshold – no dependants $57,239
Amount after-tax income exceeds threshold $6,761.00
Amount of after-tax income over threshold that James retains (50%) $3,380.00
Amount of after-tax income over threshold that James is to pay to his bankrupt estate (50%) $3,380.00

During the first year of bankruptcy, James’ after-tax income that he can retain is $60,619.00 ($57,239 plus $3,380)

c) Sue has one dependant and an after-tax income of $70,000 per annum. Sue’s income contribution liability will be:

After-tax income $70,000.00
Less:
Income threshold – one dependant $67,542.02
Amount after-tax income exceeds threshold $2,457.98
Amount of after-tax income over threshold that Sue retains (50%) $1,288.99
Amount of after-tax income over threshold that Sue is to pay to his bankrupt estate (50%) $1,288.99

During the first year of bankruptcy, Sue’s after-tax income that she retains is $68,771.01 ($67,542.02 plus $1,228.99)

d) Peter has 2 dependants and an after-tax income of $70,000 per annum. Peter’s income contribution will be:

After-tax income $70,000.00
Less:
Income threshold – two dependants $72,693.53
Amount after-tax income exceeds threshold $Nil

Peter’s income is less than the threshold. During the first year of bankruptcy, Peter’s after-tax income that he retains is $70,000 and he does not have to pay income contributions to his bankrupt estate.

e) Jane has two dependants and an after-tax income of $135,000 per annum. Jane’s income contribution liability will be:

After-tax income $135,000.00
Less:
Income threshold – two dependants $72,693.53
Amount after-tax income exceeds threshold $62,306.47
Amount of after-tax income over threshold that Sue retains (50%) $31,153.235
Amount of after-tax income over threshold that Sue is to pay to his bankrupt estate (50%) $31,153.235

During the first year of bankruptcy, Jane’s after-tax income that she can retain is $103,846.765 ($72,693.53 plus $31,153.235)
