Tax time super tips

In the lead up to the end of the financial year (EOFY), having the right information on hand is important if you need help and guidance around superannuation and tax. 
Here we’ve put together some tips to help make tax time as easy as possible for you.

1. Know the before-tax contribution limit

Now’s a good time to check where you’re at with your before-tax (concessional) contributions, so you can avoid the consequences of going over the current limit of $25,000 a financial year.

Check your total contributions for this financial year to date by logging into your account. Refer to the 'Concessional' amount shown on the 'Add to your super' page.

2. Consider spouse contributions

Depending on your and your partner’s income, taking advantage of spouse contributions can help reduce your taxable income and boost your savings. If your income* is less than $40,000, your partner may be eligible to receive a tax offset of up to 18% on contributions to your super of up to $3,000.

Make a spouse contribution by logging into your account. Refer to the 'Make a spouse contribution' button on the 'Add to your super' page.

3. Check your insurance

Use our insurance calculator to understand what cover you need and how much it'll cost.

4. Consider a super top-up
