Make the Most of Your End of Financial Year Contributions!

By Forrest Private Wealth

We hope you’re doing well and gearing up for the end of the financial year!

As June 30 approaches, it’s the perfect time to ensure you’re making the most of your superannuation contributions. Whether you’re an employee or running your own business, there are fantastic benefits to topping up your super before the financial year wraps up.

Making end-of-financial-year (EOFY) super contributions can offer several benefits:
  • Boost Your Retirement Savings: Additional contributions can significantly enhance your retirement nest egg, helping you enjoy a more comfortable lifestyle.
  • Take Control of Your Taxes: Contributions to your super can be tax-deductible, giving you the power to reduce your taxable income for this financial year. It’s a smart way to manage your tax obligations while investing in your future.
  • Reducing Capital Gains Tax: Making a concessional super contribution may allow you to offset capital gains tax liabilities if you’ve sold investments during the financial year. By contributing to your super fund, you may be able to reduce your taxable capital gains.
  • Reducing Taxable Income for Medicare Levy Surcharge: Making additional super contributions can potentially lower your taxable income, which may help you avoid or reduce the Medicare Levy Surcharge if you’re above the income thresholds.
  • Employer Contributions Matching: Some employers offer matching contributions to their employees’ super funds. By making additional contributions before the EOFY, you may maximise the amount of matching contributions you receive from your employer, effectively doubling your savings.
  • Super Co-contribution: For individuals who earn below a certain threshold, the government may provide a super co-contribution when they make after-tax contributions to their super fund. This co-contribution can help boost retirement savings and is subject to specific eligibility criteria.
