Contributions to Super - The what, how, why and when paper


The taxation impacts on making a contribution to a superannuation fund can never be underestimated as it is more than just the payment of cash that is counted. In this paper, Graeme Colley looks at the finer points of:

  • What is a contribution – there is more to that than you think
  • Taxation impacts of contributions
  • The importance of timing contributions
  • Keeping your contribution caps on or off
  • The impact of the proposals in the wind.
