Sladen Snippet - second tranche of super changes released

The Government has released its second tranche of superannuation budget measures. The measures in the second tranche include:

  • The $1.6 million pension cap (referred to as the “transfer balance cap”)
  • Lowering the concessional contributions cap to $25K
  • Lowering the 30% contribution tax rate threshold (referred to as the Division 293 tax) from $300K to $250K
  • The ability to make up to 5 years’ worth of concessional contributions
  • Removing the earnings tax exemption (ie pension phase) for transition to retirement income streams
  • Abolishing the anti-detriment rule

The lowering of the non-concessional contributions cap (and related measures) was not included in this tranche but will be included in a future tranche.
