Tax on compensation received for inappropriate advice

Again, the answer to a tax question is “it all depends”.



       


 


On the heels of the banking and financial services Royal Commission, the Australian Taxation Office has published information about how tax applies for people who receive compensation from a financial institution that provided inappropriate advice and/or did not provide advice it should have. This can include compensation for the loss of an investment, or a refund of fees or interest.


Capital gains tax comes into play, and the compensation amount may count as part of your assessable income if it’s a refund of adviser fees that you’ve already claimed as a tax deduction.


Contact us if you’ve received compensation from your bank or adviser and need to know more.
