Tax deductions for personal super contributions

Do you make personal superannuation contributions and wish to claim them as a tax deduction?

If you wish to claim a tax deduction for personal superannuation contributions made in the 2017 financial year, you need to lodge a Notice of Intent to Claim Tax Deduction form with the relevant superannuation fund/s prior to the earlier of:

– 30 June 2018; or

– the date you lodge your tax return for the 2017 financial year.

Similarly, to claim a tax deduction for personal superannuation contributions made in the 2018 financial year, you need to lodge a Notice of Intent to Claim Tax Deduction form prior to the earlier of:

– 30 June 2019; or

– the date you lodge your tax return for the 2018 financial year.

Your accountant should be checking with you to confirm that you have received a written acknowledgment from the trustee of your superannuation fund (and have sighted the fund’s acknowledgment letter) prior to lodging your tax return.

Please let us know if you require any assistance in relation to this, however the relevant forms can be downloaded from the Australian Taxation office website or from your superannuation fund’s website.
