I am 61 and a dual national (UK/Aus) and have a couple of Private Pensions in the UK from previous working, I am currently unemployed and planning to self fund retire or work part time, earlier this year I closed and withdrew the balance of one of my pension funds (not much 20k or so ) as it did not allow me to Draw Down from it and wasn't performing well. The money is sat in my UK bank account currently and as I was an Australian Tax Payer I claimed my Tax back that the Inland Revenue automatically stopped.
I now need to fill in my 2020 Oz tax forms and was wondering::
A) Do I have to declare these as earnings as I am self funding retiree,not claiming anything at all atm?
B) I also have an Australian Super but did not draw the $10,000 Covid payment that was allowed earlier this year so can I offset some of the UK super for that?
