Would salary sacrificing work for you?
Salary sacrifice contributions may not be right for everyone.
If the tax you pay on your salary sacrifice contributions is lower than your marginal individual income tax rate, you may be able to achieve significant tax savings.
For those whose income is more than $250,000 a year, it’s worth noting that there is an additional tax on super contributions, generally charged at 15% of an individual’s taxable contributions. In addition, salary sacrificing may take you over the before-tax contribution cap.
For those on a low income, salary sacrificing may not result in effective tax savings for you.
We recommend you check with a qualified financial planner to determine the best contribution strategy for your circumstances and long-term financial goals.
