The new $500,000-lifetime contribution cap

Pages: pp 76-79


One of the troubling aspects of the $500,000 lifetime non-concessional contributions (NCC) cap announcement in the 2016 Federal Budget is that the new lifetime NCC cap catches prior NCC's made since 1 July 2007. It is considered that the implementation of this announcement would effectively give rise to retrospective legislation for almost 9 years. Thus people who have previously relied on the law during this 9-year period in making contributions to their super funds may now have no or little lifetime NCC cap left remaining. This article looks at the retrospective legislation impact.
