Why make after-tax contributions?
Adding to your super from your after-tax salary is especially good for people who earn less than $46,920 per year (including assessable income, fringe benefits and super contributions) and those who aren't working.
If you add to your super from your after-tax salary, you could receive a bonus Government co‑contribution of up to $500 a year#.
If you're self-employed, you can claim a tax deduction on contributions you make up to your after-tax contribution limit. For more information see Super for the self-employed.
* You should consider your debt levels before adding to your super.
# This amount is based on reductions to the co-contributions schedule for personal contributions made from 1 July 2012. This legislation has been proposed but not yet passed.
