April 2018 Information Guide No 3.

Please be aware that personal super contributions claimed as an income tax deduction count towards the concessional contribution cap of $25,000 for 2017/18.

Thus if you earnt $100,000 for 2017/2018, your employer will contribute $9,500 to your nominated superannuation fund leaving $15,500 maximum amount that can be claimed as an income tax deduction to avoid exceeding the cap and incurring penalties.

This is because your cap also includes contributions made by your employer such as employer contributions for super guarantee (SGL) purposes or under salary sacrifice agreements.

Non-concessional contributions can still be made up to $100,000 for 2017/2018 but cannot be claimed as tax deductions.

Please contact us should you require further explanation or assistance.

For a more detailed explanation you can also refer to the ATO website.
