Co-contributions and low-income concessions

Co-contributions and low-income concessions

Part of the eligibility criteria for the co-contribution is the requirement to make an eligible personal superannuation contribution. This must be a non-concessional contribution  (a contribution for which no tax deduction is claimed).

Eligible personal superannuation contributions do not include:

·         Rollover amounts

·         Superannuation transferred from a foreign superannuation fund

·         A directed termination payment

·         An amount transferred from a fund that has never been an Australian superannuation fund or foreign superannuation fund.

A client can choose whether to claim a tax deduction or not. If they want to also claim the co-contribution they should not claim a full deduction for the contribution so that part of the contribution is a non-concessional contribution and counts for co-contribution purposes.
