Want to top-up your super before the end of the 2016-17 financial year? Make sure you get your contributions in on time so you don’t miss out on any tax advantages or government incentives.
To make your contributions count for this financial year, we must receive your contribution on or before 12pm (Melbourne time) Friday, 30 June 2017.1 You can contribute using BPAY® or cheque (not cash or electronic funds transfer payments).
If you submit your contribution by BPAY®, it’s worth noting an earlier deadline of 5pm (Melbourne time) Tuesday 27 June to allow time for funds to be received and processed by 30 June.

There are limits on the total amount of contributions you can make into super each financial year without paying extra tax. If you exceed these limits, you may pay more tax on any contributions exceeding the caps. Check how your super's tracking against the caps by visiting MemberOnline.
If you’re sending your cheque by post, allow enough time for it to reach us. This could mean posting your cheque up to six working days in advance of the deadline.
To avoid possible delays, you can present cheques to our Melbourne office by no later than 12pm (Melbourne time) Friday, 30 June 2017. This will allow us to bank the cheques in time.
Remember to submit a correctly completed form with your cheque or we won’t be able to accept your payment and your contribution won’t count for this financial year.
1 Under super legislation, we cannot backdate contribution payments.
