super for the self-employed

If you are running your own business, we know it can be hard to find time to think about your super.  

Research shows that around 19% of self-employed people have no super savings*. Paying yourself super is not compulsory if you are self-employed, but you need to build your super if you are going to have enough for retirement.

Why save into super? 

The tax breaks available to self-employed people can make super a very attractive way to save. Your super contributions can be claimed as a tax deduction and, once inside the super system, your money is taxed at favourable rates.

How do I pay myself super? 

Most self-employed people can contribute up to $27,500 per year into their super fund and receive a tax benefit. 

You can choose to pay yourself super regularly as an employer would or transfer a lump sum when your cash flow allows for it.
