Super Reforms – Key Opportunities

Some opportunities to grow your super and retire with more may be available before and after 30 June this year.

Before 1 July 2017.

Maximise non-concessional contributions

In the current financial year, non-concessional contributions are capped at $180,000 pa or $540,000 if you bring forward up to two years’ worth of contributions. Other conditions apply (www.ato.gov.au). From 1 July 2017, the maximum non-concessional contributions you can make is $100,000 or $300,000 by bringing forward two years’ worth of contributions.


However, non-concessional contributions will not be able to be made if you have a total superannuation balance 5,6 over $1.6 million.
If you have sufficient money available that you would like to contribute to super, you may want to make non-concessional contributions before 30 June 2017 to take advantage of the higher cap.

Financial Planning Adelaide

A person's financial story is like a jigsaw puzzle... "lots of pieces needing to be put into their correct places". A financial adviser can assist a client to put the pieces in the right places by having a series of simple conversations about where a they are currently situated, where they want to be and what strategies can assist them. Every client has a different financial story and goals. Each jigsaw puzzle will always be different. A good financial adviser is experienced at putting together a wide range of jigsaw puzzles. Helping a client put their own puzzle together and seeing their satisfaction is a wonderful feeling.
