Contributions and caps


One way of boosting your super is by making additional contributions. Options include before-tax (concessional) contributions through salary sacrificing some of your pay, or after-tax (non-concessional) contributions using your after-tax money.

Depending on your approach – and your personal circumstances – you may be able to save on tax while building your super.

This short video briefly explains your options, and also details the government ‘contribution caps’ that apply to your super contributions, what happens if you go over the limits and how you can avoid paying extra tax.
