Trusts and Residential Care Subsidies

L

ately we have State should look after you till been seeing many death do us part, I was reminded clients hitting recently of the official stance their milestone year – from the Ministry of Social the magic 65. This is Development. And I quote: “… the year where they can where appropriate [applicants] access their Kiwisaver, should use the resources receive National Super, available to them before seeking travel on SuperGold financial assistance under this card and even enjoy a Act…” [s1A Social Security Act] cuppa - compliments So this prompted many clients Stephen Tsang, Partner Withers Tsang of McDonalds. While including some of their advisors clients are busy planning to resort to setting up trusts or how to spend their other mechanisms to reduce their personal “windfall”, it is also the year where they are wealth (i.e. “financial resources”) with the one step closer to the inevitable reality of hope that they would qualify for some sort of needing residential care. subsidy. While it is reassuring to know that There are many genuine reasons why our country has a social net for the you should have a family trust (e.g assets underprivileged, it is also disheartening to protection) However, our firm generally does hear some clients deliberating their double not recommend clients setting up trusts solely jeopardy experience – paying high taxes for residential care purpose because rules and when they were young and yet not getting case precedents change all the time. Worst any residential care subsidies when they grow of all, the Ministry could view such act as old (as promised). The irony in all this, is “deprivation of property and income”. [s9B that they fail the means and income testing Social Security Act] because they choose to save and invest for the So it is fitting for us to revisit the current future – theirs and their family’s future. application process for residential care Putting aside the polarising topic whether the

subsidies and see how having trusts may affect some of the steps involved. Note: you will not qualify for any residential care subsidy until you have passed all of the following steps. Step 1 Self Financial Review • Satisfy yourself that you do not have the financial resources to pay for your own care Step 2 Needs Assessment • A needs assessor will determine whether long term residential care is required

(previously $25,000) over five years preceding the subsidy application instead of $135,000 (being 5 years x $27,000/year). Such “count back” alone will increase your personal assets value by $105,000. Step 4 Means Assessment - Income This is where WINZ considers whether income (e.g. interest, rental income, dividends) in addition to the National Super has exceeded the allowable threshold.

• This is where WINZ determines whether you and your spouse’s combined assets value (e.g. cash; shares; rental property) would exceed the threshold.

Though not defined in legislation or regulations, anecdotal evidence albeit isolated cases suggest that the Ministry could consider both income and capital distributions (if paid regularly) from trusts as income. This is a clear departure from the common accounting and legal practices.

But what about the loans you made to the family trust? These are assets too, particularly when your gifting program is incomplete or was only completed recently.

As you can see, you cannot simply set up a trust, sit back and expect the State to handover the money that you believe you’re entitled to.

On the subject of gifting, did you know that WINZ sees gifting differently to lawyers and accountants? In fact, rather than recognising the usual $27,000 per individual per year (the annual gift duty threshold up until September 2011) WINZ will only recognise $30,000

It is a pertinent reminder for everyone to regularly review your trust affairs with your lawyers and accountants to ensure your objectives are met and you do not count the chickens before they are hatched…as witnessed by our recent Cup challenge.

Ponsonby beauty 93 Clarence St, Ponsonby

H

ere is your chance to pick up a real gem of a house; first time on the market in 20 years! It is currently configured with two generously sized bedrooms and a separate lounge. The bedrooms open onto the deck. The bathroom is modern and features a claw foot tub and shower, with floor to ceiling white tiles, making the bathroom seem larger. The wooden flooring, which is throughout the home, makes it also a warm space. The kitchen is very serviceable with a high L-shaped counter, which is great for hiding any kitchen clutter. The sunny dining area in the adjacent room has French doors, which open out, onto a decked area - the perfect spot for upcoming summer entertaining. The lounge has exposed beams and a cast iron open fire with wooden surround, which give it a cosy feel, but the home has been fully insulated so more for effect. There is a huge, separate 2 car garage down the driveway with access across the paved area to the rear of the house and kitchen area. The area is ‘quaint’ with a bench beside two ficus trees in the garden. The wide stairs lead to the back deck and into the lounge / kitchen area. This property has great positioning and it on a 460m2 west facing section with a fine view of the Waitakere Ranges. It is located at the quieter end of Clarence Street, but yet so close to all that makes this area desirable to live in

with Ponsonby Road only moments away. There are options to extend and update but is totally livable as is. There is no doubt this house would make a lovely home. Seize this opportunity to make it yours!
