  • Do you split your business income for tax purposes?
  • Does your accountant work hard to minimise your taxable income?

If you answer “YES” to either of these questions, you could be at a serious disadvantage when it comes to an ACC claim. Talk to me about ways in which you can increase your chances of receiving a realistic payout if you are unable to work as a result of an accident

Alternatives to ACC

  • Key Person insurance
    • Allows you to continue to receive your normal income while you are unable to work through illness or injury
    • Pays your business expenses for up to three years if you are unable to work
    • Is NOT offset against ACC payments
    • Is Tax deductible
    • Pays you to employ a manger or locum to keep your business viable while you are away
  • Private income replacement policies are provided by most New Zealand life insurance companies.
    • These policies cover you for time off work due to illness as well as injury
  • ACC offers cover for ONLY injuries, not illness related claims
    • These policies usually offer more comprehensive benefits than ACC is able to provide
    • They are normally more flexible than ACC CoverPlus or Workplace Cover
    • Private Income Replacement policies normally offer benefits that pay you if you are not able to work for any reason due to illness OR accident.
  • Your Key Person and Private income replacement insurance can be largely offset by your ACC savings.

 Is your business classification correct?

Around 20% of businesses are incorrectly classified. This is not surprising as there are 534 ACC business classifications with 2,366  sub classifications.

An incorrect classification can be costing you many thousands of dollars a year.

EXAMPLE

A firm of solicitors were classified as Slaughtermen and were paying $34,385 p.a. in ACC levies.

Their correct classification of Legal Services reduced their ACC levies to $2,242.50.
