Super Downsizer Measure – eligibility, take up and common errors 

The ATO is seeing some common mistakes around eligibility for the Downsizer Measure, which started on 1 July 2018. 

It is important that your client knows they are eligible before making a downsizer contribution. If a contribution is found to be ineligible, it could be re-reported as a non-concessional contribution and your client may receive an excess non-concessional contribution determination. False and misleading penalties may also apply.
