Super Changes

A once-in-a-decade change program for Australia’s superannuation system

The measures to implement the Government’s super reform program, originally announced in the 2016 Federal Budget, became law on 29 November 2016.

They include:

  • the introduction of a $1.6 million pension cap
  • changes to taxation of transition to retirement income streams
  • consequential transitional CGT relief, and
  • a range of other measures.

Most of the reform measures are effective from 1 July 2017.
