Retirement Annuity

Save for retirement in a tax-efficient way. Our Retirement Annuity grows your retirement capital giving you a more predictable outcome so that you can draw a reliable monthly income when you retire. Read our article on how Marriott creates certainty in retirement planning, even in volatile markets.

Investment Choice

Choose between the Marriott Balanced Fund as the default managed portfolio (Reg 28), or a select range of Marriott Unit Trusts (use our online tool to create your own Reg 28 portfolio).

Income

Automatically reinvested to accumulate capital.

Capital

Capital is accumulated through the tax-free reinvestment of income, and from growth in this income.

Flexibility

  • Rebalance your portfolio at any time, no CGT incurred.
  • Start, increase or cancel your debit order at any time.
  • Top up your investment with additional lump sums at any time.

Withdrawals

Pre-Retirement:

  • On emigration – full withdrawal permitted, subject to tax.
  • If investment amount is below R15,000 - subject to tax.

At Retirement:

  • Unvested Benefits: A maximum of 1/3 of the retirement benefit value can be taken as a cash lump sum (taxable). The remainder must be used to purchase an income in retirement (tax-free transfer), subject to the annuity threshold.
  • Vested Benefits: 100% of the retirement benefit value can be taken as a cash lump sum (taxable).

Tax

  • Contributions: Tax deductible up to 27.5% of the higher of your remuneration or taxable income, to a maximum of R350,000 (This is on total contributions to all retirement funds. If you contribute more you can carry them over to the next tax year).
  • Income: No Income Tax.
  • Dividend Withholdings Tax is not applicable.
  • Capital: No Capital Gains Tax (CGT).

Death

You may nominate dependants and beneficiaries. Beneficiaries can elect to receive a lump sum (subject to tax legislation) or to transfer the investment to an annuity.
