Posted 20 June 2022

There is still time to contribute to your super this financial year

Tipping extra into your super, regardless how small, may add up over time. In looking out for your financial future, you may save on some tax at the same time.

Please keep in mind that contribution caps apply where contributions over the cap are subject to additional tax.  Read more in our Contributing to your super reference guide.

Key dates

To make sure your contributions (or withdrawal payments) are included in the FY21/22 year, please make sure we receive:

  • All withdrawals requests by Thursday 23 June 2022
  • All contributions via cheque by Thursday 23 June 2022

Take advantage of the Government co-contribution

If you make an after-tax (non-concessional) contribution to your super, the government may make a tax-free contribution of up to $500 per year to your super. The amount you may receive depends on the amount of your after tax contribution and your income.

If your income is $41,112 or less for 2021-22, you may be eligible for up to the maximum $500 co-contribution. The maximum co-contribution reduces for higher incomes, and cuts out for anyone with an income of $56,112 or more. Other conditions apply, read more information on this initiative in our Co-contribution fact sheet here.

Spouse contributions may be eligible for a tax offset

These are after-tax contributions that your spouse can make to your super (or vice versa). The contributing spouse may be eligible for a tax offset of up to $540pa  if the receiving spouse’s income plus reportable fringe benefits and employer super contributions for 2021–22 is less than $40,000. Other conditions apply read our Reference Guide: Contributing to your super and the ATO’s Super related tax offsets | Australian Taxation Office (ato.gov.au)
