Strategies to maximise contributions

This 2-part web series will equip you with what you need to know to manage superannuation contributions and contribution strategy deployment for clients.

We’ve taken the questions we are often asked about contributions – from the constant rule changes, working with contribution caps, utilising concessions, and more – and wrapped these issues into this comprehensive web series. Plus, we’ll flag the problem areas where practitioners are getting it wrong. 

There has been a myriad of changes to the superannuation contribution rules and regulations. We’ll show you what these changes mean in practice and where the opportunities lie.

Knowing how to get the best results for different client segments is essential. We'll show you how.

What we cover

This 2-part webinar series provides an in-depth exploration of the recent changes impacting superannuation contributions and the factors that affect a members contribution cap. Then, we provide the strategies to help your clients maximise their contributions for their personal circumstances.

Contributions & the impact of recent changes

  • Changes to non-concessional contribution caps and how a member's total superannuation balance (TSB) impacts their cap
  • How to determine a member's total superannuation balance at 30 June (and why it's not always as simple as using their balance at 30 June)
  • The work test - the new regulations. When and how the work test extension applies
  • Changes to the procedures for excess concessional and non-concessional determinations


Wednesday, 29 July 2020 at 12:00pm - 1:15pm AEST

Reference notes included.

Contribution strategy deployment

  • Strategies to effectively manage a members non-concessional cap - in many cases if the member doesn't use the cap when available, they lose it!
  • How to maximise a member's concessional contribution cap, including access to the carry-forward rules and how to avoid unintended Div 293 tax
  • Eligibility to make a 'Downsizer' contribution
  • Effective use of unallocated contribution reserve and how to not attract the ATO's attention
