Latest Super Changes

A number of changes are being made to superannuation from 1 July 2017 that will impact how people can maximise their super and take advantage of the tax concessions available. These changes will impact:

  • The concessional contribution cap
  • Changes to the limit (cap) and eligibility for making non-concessional contributions
  • Salary sacrifice arrangements
  • Tax deductibility for personal contributions
  • High income additional contributions tax (Division 293 tax)
  • The ability to carry forward any unused concessional contribution cap
  • The amount someone can have invested in the pension phase of superannuation, will be limited to $1.6 million

The good news is that for most Australians, superannuation remains the best wealth accumulation structure from a tax perspective. On top of the income tax benefits available for contributions, superannuation in the accumulation phase pays maximum tax of 15% on investment income and no tax when a super fund is paying a retirement pension to its members - from 1 July 2017, where the pension account balance is less than $1.6m.

Given the changes, it may be worthwhile maximising contributions prior to 1 July 2017, as well as ensuring the best arrangements are in place for future years.
