Tax paid investing at
a max tax rate of 30% over 10 years
Centuria investment bonds give investors with medium- to long-term goals the capacity to make tax-effective investment decisions outside superannuation.
Are you wanting to build wealth, save for a property, or set aside an education fund? Do you want to complement your superannuation strategy with a more flexible investment or look for an efficient way to transfer wealth?
The growth and earnings of Centuria Investment Bonds are taxed at a maximum rate of 30%, paid by Centuria from the earnings of each bond.
You pay no personal income tax on your investment during the term, and if you hold your investment for more than 10 years, you pay no tax on withdrawals.
You can make once-only, or regular contributions and benefit from the advantages of compound growth to create long-term wealth.
We do not distribute any income until you withdraw your investment. Each bond’s net investment earnings are automatically reinvested, which means you benefit from compounding returns.
As long as your money remains invested, we will pay tax on investment earnings and there is no requirement to declare those earnings in your annual tax reporting.
Establish your investment bond. We pay the tax and report to you annually. No tax declarations, and no additional paperwork.
There are no limits on contributions in the first year and you can contribute up to 125% of the previous year’s contributions after that without changing the original start date of your investment bond for tax purposes. There are no limits on withdrawals. You can make once-only or regular contributions and withdrawals whenever you like. You can use your bond to build wealth for the future, supplement your income or save for that big expense.
You can nominate beneficiaries who will receive the proceeds of the investment bond without reference to your will. This provides peace of mind knowing your intended beneficiaries will be looked after.
The table below shows fees and other costs that you may be charged. These fees and costs may be deducted from your money, from the returns on your investment or from the Bond’s assets as a whole.
