Gresham Superannuation Solution

Gresham Superannuation Solution

Gresham has developed an innovative financing product that may help maximise the value of your superannuation before the upcoming 1st July 2017 tax changes are implemented

This may be your last chance to make a significant contribution to your superannuation account

As a part of the Superannuation reforms that were announced post the 2016 budget, a non-concessional contribution cap comes into effect as of 1 July 2017.  From that date, individuals with a total super balance of $1.6 million or more will no longer be eligible to make any further non-concessional contributions. 

What does this mean? 

Post the 30 June 2017 the only contributions persons with total super balances over $1.6 million will be able to make are $25,000/year concessional contribution. Persons with total super balances of less than $1.6 million will only be able to make non-concessional contributions to the extent these contributions do not take the total super balance above $1.6 million.

The Gresham Superannuation Solution can help you to contribute to your superannuation account before the 1 July 2017 changes are implemented.

Taxation facts

  • Superannuation accounts pay 15% on ordinary income tax, 10% on capital gain tax and can receive a cash rebate
    for surplus franking credits. In retirement phase, the first $1.6m of funds in superannuation accounts will normally
    be at 0% tax and no tax is paid on pension payments for those aged 60 or more.
  • The top personal tax rate is currently 49%* on ordinary income and 24.5% on capital gains (reducing to 47% and 23.5% respectively from 1 July 2017, subject to the 2017 Budget being passed).
  • Companies pay 30% tax on both ordinary unfranked income and capital gains.
