If you’re eligible for super guarantee contributions, at least every three months your employer must pay into your super account a minimum of 9.25% of your ordinary time earnings, up to the ‘maximum contribution base’. (Note: prior to 1 July 2013 the rate was 9%.) These contributions are in addition to your salary or wages.
Concessional contributions are sometimes called ‘before-tax contributions' because the contributor can usually claim an income tax deduction. They include:
- compulsory super guarantee contributions made by your employer
- salary sacrifice contributions
- any personal contributions you notify your fund you intend to claim as an income tax deduction.
Concessional contributions are taxed 15% in the super fund.
For 2013-14 and later years, if you exceed your concessional contributions cap the excess contributions are included in your taxable income. You will receive a non-refundable tax offset equal to the 15% tax paid by your fund on this amount.
Non-concessional contributions are generally the after-tax contributions you make to a super fund. They include personal contributions you make from your after-tax pay. They aren’t usually taxed in the super fund, but if you exceed your non-concessional contributions cap a tax of 46.5% (47% from 2014-15) applies to the excess.
