Why make after-tax contributions?

Adding to your super from your after-tax salary is especially good for people who earn less than $51,021 per year (including assessable income, fringe benefits and super contributions)*.

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.
