Superannuation in Australia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Superannuation in Australia refers to the arrangements which people make in Australia to have funds available for them in retirement. In Australia, superannuation arrangements are government-supported and encouraged, and minimum provisions are compulsory for employees.[1] For example, employers are required to pay a proportion of an employee's salaries and wages (9.25% as of July 1st 2013) into a superannuation fund, but people are encouraged to put aside additional funds into superannuation. From 1 January 2014, employers are required to pay default contributions to an authorised MySuper product. The minimum obligation required by employers is set to increase to 12% gradually stepping annually from 2013 to 2020.[2]

An individual can withdraw funds out of a superannuation fund when the person meets one of the conditions of release contained in Schedule 1 of the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Regulations 1994.[3]

Before 1992, reasonably widespread superannuation arrangements had been in place for many years under industrial awards negotiated by the union movement between wage increases. In 1992, the Keating Labor government introduced a compulsory "Superannuation Guarantee" system as part of a major reform package addressing Australia's retirement income policies. It was calculated that Australia, along with many other Western nations, would experience a major demographic shift in the coming decades, resulting in the anticipated increase in age pension payments placing an unaffordable strain on the Australian economy. The proposed solution was a "three pillars" approach to retirement income:

Grim outlook for Russian timber industry

Grim outlook for Russian timber industry | Business - Investment Clients | Scoop.it
Timber output in the Russian Far East could rise by a third, and timber processing more than double by 2016, according to Viktor Ishayev, the Far East development minister in the Russian government. The timber industry itself insists, however, that such a scenario would require a sharp rise in demand in the domestic or foreign markets. Experts say, meanwhile, that Russia’s share of the global market for raw and processed timber continues to shrink, and domestic demand in the Far East is growing too slowly for such targets to be realistic.
