Although few new or additional superannuation measures were announced, further change is foreshadowed with the potential introduction of two other landmark government announcements affecting superannuation, being:


  • the proposed gradual increase in the Superannuation Guarantee (SG) rate from 9 percent to 12 percent and
  • the reduction in the effective tax rate paid by low income earners on SG and other concessional contributions.


However, no Budget is complete without some changes affecting the superannuation industry and this Federal Budget added some new proposals and confirmed some earlier announcements.


This Briefing paper provides further details on the key superannuation aspects of the Budget announcements.
