There is an innovative financing product that may assist you to make the most of what could be your last chance to make a significant contribution to your super account.
Depending on your account balance, this may be your last chance to make a significant contribution to your super account. In this article we look at an innovative financing product that may assist you to make a large contribution before 1 July 2017.
As a part of the superannuation reforms that were announced in the 2016 budget, a non-concessional contribution cap comes into effect on 1 July 2017. From that date, individuals with total super of $1.6 million or more will no longer be eligible to make any further non-concessional contributions.
What does this mean?
Post 30 June 2017 the only contributions members with total super over $1.6 million will be able to make are concessional contributions, eg salary sacrifice. Those with total super of less than $1.6 million will only be able to make non-concessional contributions to the extent these contributions do not take their total super above $1.6 million.
Australian investment house Gresham has responded to these upcoming changes by developing an innovative financing product that may help you contribute $540,000 to your superannuation account before the 1 July 2017 changes are implemented.
Based on their assumptions this product could provide a tax benefit of up to ~$260k to ~500k net of fees1 over a 15 to 20 year period.
