Looking to grow your super?

Salary sacrifice may be the answer

If you’re employed, salary sacrifice could be a tax-effective, easy way to grow your super over the long term. Find out if it’s right for you:

Salary sacrifice involves you arranging regular contributions from your pre-tax income into your super account. Depending on your pre-tax income, your money can take advantage of super’s favourable tax environment and the benefits of saving over the long term.

Things to consider

There are a few factors to consider before kicking off a new salary sacrifice arrangement:

Salary sacrifice isn’t the only option

  • There are other ways to grow your super that may be more relevant or beneficial for your situation. Salary sacrifice may not be tax effective for everyone. Find out more at our Grow your super page.

There’s a limit to how much you can contribute

  • The current before-tax (concessional) contribution cap is $27,500 for 2021/22, which includes superannuation guarantee (SG) contributions made by your employer, salary sacrifice contributions, and contributions for which you claim a tax deduction. Find out more in Your Guide to salary sacrifice.

Your age may be a factor

  • If you’re aged over 67 then you may need to meet the ‘work test’ or ‘work test exemption’ to be eligible to make salary sacrifice contributions. Find out more in Your guide to salary sacrifice.

You should also consider speaking to a financial adviser before making any decision, as they can take into account your personal circumstances.
