Superannuation Announcement 2021

Good news! The super contributions caps are set to increase from 1 July 2021 as follows: 

  • Concessional cap (tax deductible contributions, including super guarantee) increases from $25,000 pa to $27,500 pa 
  • Standard non-concessional contribution cap increases from $100,000 pa to $110,000 pa 
  • Maximum non-concessional contribution cap under the bring-forward rule increases to $330,000 

This means that you may be able to get more money into super this calendar year. 

It is important to note that the proposal announced in the 2019 federal budget to extend access to the bring-forward rule to people under age 67 at the start of the first financial year has not yet been legislated. 

Therefore, only members who are aged under 65 at the beginning of the financial year will be eligible to trigger the bring-forward rule.
