Concessional or pre-tax contribution to your super includes, employer contributions, salary sacrifice and personal contribution, which means your super fund pays 15% tax on the contribution.
Contribution cap limit the amount that can be contributed for a member each financial year. The concessional contribution cap is $25,000 for everyone effective from 1 July 2017. Previously, the concessional contribution cap was $35,000 for people above 49 years and $30,000 for everyone else. A member whose total contributions in a year exceed the contribution caps may be liable for additional tax on the excess.
From 1 July 2018, one will be able to ‘carry-forward’ any unused amount of concessional contribution cap and access it on a rolling basis for five years. It is only eligible if the Total super balance is less than $500,000 at the end of 30 June of the previous financial year.
