ARF Inheritance Tax

One of the big advantages to an Approved Retirement Fund or Approved Minimum Retirement Fund is the option of leaving any unspent funds to your family.

The tax treatment is as follows:

Spouse or Civil Partner – An ARF can be passed to a spouse or civil partner without payment of CAT (Inheritance Tax). However, any income the spouse or civil partner subsequently takes from the ARF would be assessable for income tax.

A Child under age 21 – benefits payable to a child under 21 are subject to CAT (Inheritance Tax) but not to income tax.

A Child over age 21 – benefits payable to a child over age 21 are subject to a 30% tax rate.
