Current Affairs, Retirement Planning, Wealth Accumulation

No matter what your situation, age or income, a little bit of End of Financial Year planning can go a long way. It can help you:

  • maximise your Government entitlements, and
  • minimise your tax liabilities.

We can sit down with you and look at the best strategies to see which suits you best. The following strategies are worth investigating.

Note: To use strategies in relation to super contributions, you generally need to be eligible to make super contributions. Furthermore, you won’t be able to access your super until you satisfy a condition of release.
^ Includes assessable income, reportable fringe benefits and reportable employer super contributions. Other eligibility conditions apply.
Super strategies should be in consideration of concessional and non-concessional caps.

Super Contribution Caps for the 2017 Financial Year



Income Year Amount of cap
2016-2017 $30,000/$35,000^


^ Higher cap applies for clients aged 49 or over at 30 June 2016.
From 01 July 2017 the caps for making concessional contributions to Superannuation have been reduced to a flat $25,000 p.a.



Income Year Amount of cap
2016-2017 $180,000/$540,000^
2017-2018 $100,000/$300,000*


^ People under age 65 at any time in the financial year may effectively bring-forward two years’ worth of non-concessional contributions allowing them to contribute $540,000 at any time over a three year period without exceeding the cap. Note: If a person has invoked the “Bring Forward” rule in a particular FY, their non-concessional cap will remain at three times the cap in the first year.
*From next financial year the non-concessional contribution caps will be reduced. Transitional arrangements apply so it is important to seek advice to ensure you do not breech these caps
