Scenario: the church is an ACNC registered not for profit religious institution & the minister is credentialled.

Question: if I was employed as a church minister, resigned voluntarily, provided no further work, was promptly offered a sizeable gratuity payment ... would I pay tax on the gratuity 1. as if I was still employed as a minister (accessing non-reportable FBT) or 2. as if it was an employee termination payment?

Thanks for any guidance.

Hi @CityGates,

 

It depends on your employment agreement.


It is possible for an ETP to be paid at the direction of the recipient (deferred). But this runs the risk of being paid more than 12 months after the termination.

 

This information may assist regarding employment termination payments.
