Several key superannuation contribution changes are set to take effect from 1 July 2022. These changes create opportunities for all SMSF members, young and old, to grow their retirement savings.
WHAT ARE THE CHANGES?
Originally announced in the 2021 Federal Budget, the following changes apply from 1 July 2022:
- Individuals of age 67- 74, will no longer need to meet a work test to make voluntary, non-deductible, contributions
- Individuals up to the age of 75, with a total super balance under $1.7 million, will have the opportunity to make large non-concessional contributions (possibly up to three years’ worth) in a single year
- The minimum age to make downsizer contributions will reduce to 60, allowing more individuals to use the proceeds from the sale of their home, to fund their retirement
- The Superannuation Guarantee (SG) rate will increase to 10.5% p.a. for all and the $450 minimum income threshold for SG contributions, will be removed.
Superannuation rules can be very complex. Should you require further assistance, please feel free to contact our office for further information on (07) 3367 3366.
