'Concessional' contributions refer to any contributions you make to super before tax.
- the Super Guarantee your employer pays
- extra contributions you may choose to make from your before tax pay through Salary Sacrifice arrangements
- Personal tax-deductible contributions
The Government limits the amount of concessional contributions you can make – for most people, the cap for the 2021/22 financial year is $27,500.
If you go over the cap additional tax may apply. See the ATO website for more information.
Contributing more under the 'carry forward' rule
You may be able to use the ‘carry forward rule’ to contribute more than the $27,500 cap. This rule lets you use any unused portion of the concessional contributions cap on a rolling basis for five years, providing your total super balance is less than $500,000 on 30 June of the previous financial year. Any amount not used after five years expires.
