The key purpose of an ARF is to provide benefits over the duration of your life from retirement and they should be viewed as long-term investments.
An ARF can accept transfers from a range of pensions, including
An ARF offers tax-free investment returns
Income withdrawal from an ARF is subject to income tax at your marginal rate. Legislation has introduced an annual taxable ‘imputed distribution’ which will be applied to the value of assets in ARFs. This means that PAYE will be payable on an amount which is assumed to be taken out of your ARF by you.
The imputed distribution amount as at January 2014 is 5% (where combined ARF and vested PRSA assets are greater than €2 million) of the value of your ARF as at 30 November each year.
This imputed distribution is applicable to ARF holders who are 60 or over for the full tax year.
There is a risk that the ARF investor who takes regular withdrawals and/or imputed distributions over the life of his/her retirement is exposed to “bomb out” risk, which is the risk that the income needs of an investor may not be met by the value of his/her ARF.
We provide clients with a wide range of personalised pension structures, all of which offer a range of flexible investment options. There are risks associated with pensions, and you should contact a Davy Portfolio Manager for advice to ensure that you choose a pension product that is right for you.
