Superannuation

  • Co-Contribution – Let's start with the easy money. Low-income earners should think about making a personal superannuation contribution so that they qualify for the government's superannuation co-contribution payment.
  • Re-contributions – Currently, strategies exist that allow you to draw a pension from your fund and re-contribute amounts to the funds, reducing tax significantly, while maintaining your same net cash. Don't leave it to the last minute to set this up though.
  • Contribution caps – Make sure that you don't contribute more than the annual concessional contribution cap @ 30/6/2015 < 49 years of age $30,000 and = 49 years of age $35,000 or risk being subject to an excess contributions tax of 46.5%. Taxpayers are often brought undone by forgetting salary sacrificed superannuation while also contributing to an industry fund.
