Proposed Superannuation Changes

On 28 February 2023, the Government announced it would reduce the superannuation tax concessions available to individuals whose total superannuation balances exceed $3 million. The changes will apply from 1 July 2025.

This reform is intended to bring the headline tax rate to 30 per cent, up from 15 per cent, for earnings corresponding to the proportion of an individual’s superannuation balance that is greater than $3 million. Earnings relating to assets below the $3 million threshold will continue to be taxed at 15 per cent or 0 per cent if held in a retirement pension account.

The consultation paper containing the proposed changes has just been released by Treasury.
