Non-Concessional Contributions

A Non-Concessional Contribution is after tax money that Members contribute to their SMSF. These contributions are not taxed in your Super Fund, as it has already been taxed in a personal capacity.

There are caps on the Non-Concessional Contributions you can contribute to your SMSF each financial year. If you go over the cap, you may have to pay penalty tax on the excess contribution. From 1 July 2017, the Non-Concessional Contribution cap is reduced from $180,000 to $100,000 per year. Individuals who hold a superannuation balance of more than $1.6 million cannot make any further Non-Concessional Contributions to the Fund as of 1 July 2017.

Financial year Non-Concessional Cap Tax on amounts over cap
2017–18 $100,000 47%
2016–17 $180,000 47% (plus 2% budget repair levy)
