Claim a tax deduction for voluntary after-tax contributions

You can claim a tax deduction for your personal super contributions. To do so, you must complete a notice of intent form to let us know that you intend to claim a deduction on your contributions.

Please note, to claim a tax deduction for contributions made in 2021-22, you must return this form before:

  • the day you lodge your income tax return for 2021-22 OR
  • the end of the 2022/23 financial year,

whichever comes first.

Once we’ve confirmed that your claim has been accepted, you can then complete your tax return.

Download the notice of intent to claim a form (PDF, 204KB)

You can also use this form to change an earlier notice.  

You can email your completed form or send to:

Hostplus
Locked Bag 5046
Parramatta NSW 2124.

Eligibility

You can claim for a deduction for your personal super contributions if all of the following apply:

  • you are still a member of Hostplus 
  • Hostplus has not begun to pay an income stream (for example, a pension) based on part or all of the contributions for which you intend to claim a deduction 
  • we have confirmed receipt of your Notice of intent to claim
  • we have accepted the contribution for which you want to claim a deduction 
  • you have not applied to split the contribution for which you intend to claim a deduction 
  • you meet the other eligibility criteria to claim a deduction
  • you have not withdrawn an amount or rolled out to another fund all or part of the contribution for which you want to claim a deduction 
  • you are aged under 67, or
  • you are aged 67 - 74 and meet the work-test criteria (in gainful employment for at least 40 hours over a period of no more than 30 consecutive days).*

If you are under 18 or over 75, additional restrictions may apply, visit ato.gov.au for more details.

Check the ‘Contribution caps’ section below to see how much you’re able to claim.

*Please note that although the work test is being abolished from 1 July 2022, you will still need to meet the work-test criteria for contributions made in 2021/22.

Spouse contribution tax offset

You may be able to claim a tax offset of up to $540 on contributions you made to your partner’s super. If you’re eligible, include these contributions on your tax return.

Set up salary sacrifice

Ask your employer to pay more into your super from your salary. It’s an easy way to grow your super and pay less tax.

Learn more

Annual contribution caps apply to the super contributions made to your super each financial year. If you contribute more than the cap, you may have to pay extra tax. 

Your cap depends on your account balance and the type of contribution.

 Contribution/cap type Cap

Concessional

Contributions that are made into your super account before tax. These include:

  • Super Guarantee (SG) contributions from your employer
  • salary sacrifice
  • contributions for which you claim a tax deduction.

Important: If you have more than one fund, concessional contributions made to all your funds during a financial year are added together and counted towards your concessional contributions cap.

$27,500

Your cap may be higher if you didn’t use your full amount in earlier years and your total super balance is less than $500,000 on 30 June of the previous financial year.

Non-concessional

Contributions from your after-tax income. These contributions are not taxed in your Hostplus super account, including:

  • personal after-tax contributions
  • spouse contributions

Important: if you have more than one fund, all non-concessional contributions made to all of your funds are added together and counted towards the non-concessional contributions cap.

$110,000

Your cap might be different. It can be:

  • higher, if you can use the bring-forward arrangements
  • nil, if your total super balance is greater than or equal to the general transfer balance cap ($1.7 million).

Bring forward rule for non-concessional contributions 

If you're under 65 and have less than $1.7 million in super, you may be able to bring forward up to three years of non-concessional (after-tax) contributions. This means you can contribute up to $330,000 over three years, rather than $110,000 each year. 

For example, if you contribute $150,000 in non-concessional contributions in the 2021-22 financial year, you’ll go over the $110,000 cap by $40,000. The bring-forward rule allows you to make this contribution and contribute another $180,000 over the following two years without breaching the cap. 

Visit the ATO website for more information about contribution limits and the bring forward rule.
