Salary sacrifice could help you have your cake and eat it too

 

Salary sacrifice is adding some pre-tax money into your super which not only can reduce the amount of tax you pay today, it could boost your super balance for the future.


 

WHY IT’S THE ICING ON THE CAKE

Contributing from your before-tax pay can be a great way to save your money for the future. Here’s why:
 

  1. Tax savings: Your super is only taxed at 15%1, which can be a lot less than the marginal rate of up to 47%2
  2. Compound interest: Any returns on your super will be compounded over the years, boosting your balance even more.
  3. Minimal impact on life now: Because you choose the amount you contribute3, it doesn’t have to cost you much now.
  4. Maximum impact on your future: Adding to your super regularly could help you enjoy a bigger slice of life in the years to come.

SETTING IT UP IS EASY
