This year I have a trust with a large amount of positive cashflow to distribute (thanks to the Navra Fund ). I also have three relatives receiving Centrelink benefits who I might talk to about making distributions of up to $6K to in order to make use of their tax-free threshold. Before I bring this up with them can anyone please tell me: 1. How much income can a person on Centrelink benefits receive before it affects their allowance/s? 2. How much income can a person on Centrelink benefits receive before they need to lodge a tax return? I'm fairly certain none of the 3 family members currently have to do this. Regards, Oli.
