Personal deductible contributions

If you are eligible to contribute to super, you may make voluntary personal contributions and claim a tax deduction up to your concessional contribution cap. The threshold for 2021/22 financial year is $27,500. This gives you greater flexibility to top up your concessional contributions made by your employer, especially if your employer does not offer salary sacrifice.

Capital gains and losses

A capital gain arising from the sale of an investment property or shares and capital losses can be used to offset the capital gains. For example, you may have sold investments that were no longer appropriate for your circumstances and any capital losses realised as a result can be offset against any capital gains you have realised throughout the year. Unused losses can be carried forward to offset capital gains in future years. Please seek independent financial advice before making changes to your investments.

Prepaying interest

If you have an investment loan you can arrange to prepay the interest on that loan for up to 12 months and claim a tax deduction in the same year the interest was prepaid.

Super co-contributions

If you receive at least 10% of your income from employment or self-employment and you earn less than $41,112, you may be eligible for the maximum super co-contribution of $500 from the Government for an after-tax contribution to super of $1,000. The co-contribution phases out once you earn $56,112 or more. The ATO uses information on your income tax return and contribution information from your super fund to determine your eligibility.

Employer’s superannuation guarantee charge rate (SGC) to make contributions to their employees is going up from current rate of 10% of the Ordinary Earnings to 10.50%.

Removing $450 per month threshold for SGC

From 1 July 2022, employers will be required to make super guarantee contributions to their eligible employee's super fund regardless of how much the employee is paid. Employees must still satisfy other super guarantee eligibility requirements. Employers must check their systems to ensure, SGC calculations are correct.
