How salary sacrifice could help you save on tax

Putting a little extra into your super each pay before you’re taxed – known as salary sacrifice – could mean more for you now as well as in the future.

Tax savings

Your contributions will generally be taxed at 15%, which may be less than your marginal rate of up to 47%.1


Your choice of amount

The amount you add is up to you, and is counted toward the before-tax (concessional) contributions cap of $25,000 per year.2


The compound effect

Any returns on your super will be compounded over the years, which may boost your super balance. Plus, any earnings within super will be taxed at a maximum of 15%.

Setting up salary sacrifice is easy
