What is the Contribution Cap for my Self Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF)?

It is imperative for all members/ trustees to understand the concessional and non-concession contribution caps for an income year.


Concessional Contribution Cap


Concessional contributions include employer contribution and personal contributions claimed as a tax deduction by a self employed person.


For the 2013-14 income year the amount of concessional cap is $25,000.


For individuals aged 59 and over at 30 June 2013 and 49 and over on 30 June 2014, the concessional cap has been temporally increased to $35,000.


Non-Concessional Contribution Cap


Non-concessional contributions include contributions from after tax income. These include:

  • Personal contributions that have not been claimed as a deduction
  • Spouse contributions
  • Contributions which exceeded your before-tax cap


The non-concessional cap for 2013-14 is $150,000.


It is extremely important not to exceed the concessional and non-concession cap and avoid paying extra tax at your marginal tax rate.


If you have a question in regards to contribution caps in your SMSF, please give Redwood Advisory a call on 1300 790 110.
