HOW DO I…make after-tax super contributions by cheque?


Things to know before you start:

  • There are caps, or limits, on the amount that can be contributed to super without incurring additional tax. After-tax contributions are included as non-concessional contributions for the purposes of the caps. It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not breach the caps if you want to avoid paying excess tax.
  • Tax does not generally apply to these contributions if made within the contributions caps.
  • In some cases, there may be restrictions on when or how super contributions can be made.

Getting started:

Note: You can also contribute to your super by BPAY.

Step 1:

Complete our Additional investment form.

Step 2:

Return your form with a cheque payable to ‘Commonwealth Bank Group Super, [name]’ where ‘name’ is the full name that is shown on your Accumulate Plus account.

Note: we can only accept cheques for personal contributions, spouse contributions, downsizer contributions, capital gains tax (CGT) and personal injury.
