2012 Tax Changes - Superannuation

Saturday, July 28, 2012

Superannuation changes

There will be plenty of changes made to superannuation this July.

The Government has deferred the start date of maintaining a cap at $50,000 for individauls aged over 50 years with balances below $500,000. So that means for everyone, the concessional contribution cap will drop to $25,000. 

The government will also provide a low income superannuation contribution for individuals earning up to $37,000, so they’ll effectively be refunded the 15% contributions tax.

It will also reduce the super co-contribution by 50%, to just 50c per $1 contribution, effectively reducing the top benefit from $1,000 to $500.

There will also be some changes for high-wealth individuals. People with income greater than $300,000 will have contributions reduced from 30% to 15%
