The Government has announced that from 2025-26, the 15% concessional tax rate applied to future earnings for superannuation balances above $3 million will increase to 30%.
The concessional tax rate on earnings from superannuation in the accumulation phase will remain at 15% up to $3m. From $3m onwards, the rate will increase to 30%. The amendment applies to future earnings; it is not retrospective.
80,000 people are expected to be impacted by the measure.
The announcement doesn't propose any changes to the transfer balance cap or the amount that a member can have in the tax-free retirement phase.
