To be eligible you need to make an after tax contribution up to $1,000. The team at 5 Financial will be in touch over the next 2 weeks to provide you with the details of how much to make and how to make it if it is applicable to you.

Spouse contribution tax offset

The spouse contribution tax offset enables a benefit of up to $540 for making a contribution on behalf of a low income spouse. For a contribution of $3,000 for a spouse earning less than $10,800, the full $540 offset is available.

For amounts between $10,800 and $13,799, the amount reduces to 18% of the amount between the spouses income and $10,800. Don’t worry too much about the calculations as again, the team at 5 Financial will be in touch over the next 2 weeks to provide you with the details of how much to make and how to make it if it is applicable to you.
