SUPERANNUATION CO-CONTRIBUTION
 

30 June 2017

Superannuation co-contribution

If your superannuation co-contribution is between $1 to $1,000 and your income is < $36,021 then the ATO will pay a matching rate to your superannuation fund of 50% of your contribution of $.50 to $500. This amount reduces by 3.333 cents per $1 until your income reaches $51,021.

ELIGIBILITY

You must be under the threshold income test $51,021. This is assessable income plus reportable fringe benefits plus reportable employer contributions.

10% or more of your total income must come from employment-related activities or carrying on a business.

You must be < 71 years old on 30 June.

You must lodge an individual tax return and complete Adjustments A3 section.

You must make a co-contribution to your super fund before 30 June.

 

YOUR SUPERANNUATION FUND

Your superannuation balance must be < $1.6m on 30 June 2016.

You must not exceed your non-concessional contributions cap in the 30 June 2017 financial year.

Your superannuation co-contribution must appear in your superannuation fund's members statement as personal contributions Label B.

When your superannuation fund actually receives the superannuation co-contribution from the ATO it is recorded in the co-contribution part Label M of your members statement in your superannuation fund's tax return.

 

The ATO currently makes these superannuation co-contribution payments on the 2nd Friday of each month.
