Super Co-Contributions

The government will make a co-contribution to your super up to $1000.00 per year from 1 July 2009 as long as the following criteria are met:

• You make a personal superannuation contribution by 30 June of that income year to a complying superannuation fund or RSA
• You don’t claim a deduction in your income tax return for the contribution
• Your total income is below the income threshold ($61,920 from 1 July 2009)
• 10% or more of your total income is from running a business, eligible employment or a combination of both
• You are less than 71 years old at the end of the income year
• You do not hold an eligible temporary resident visa at any time during the income year
• The contribution needs to be marked as an “after tax” contribution when sent to your fund, and
• Net business income, ie after expenses, of less than $31,920 will receive the full co-contribution of up to $1000 and the amount will phase out to the point of receiving no co-contribution above $61,920.

Your net income along with the amount you contribute will ultimately determine the amount received.
