2017 Superannuation Changes Seminar Downloads

Diversified Financial Planners' 2017 Superannuation Changes seminars provided a wealth of valuable information for attendees.

On 1 July 2017, some rule changes will come into effect that may impact your retirement strategy and possibly the contributions you make into superannuation. The changes include:

  1. A reduction in the amount you can contribute to concessional (pre-tax) super contributions
  2. A reduction in the amount you can contribute to non-concessional (after-tax) super contributions
  3. The introduction of a transfer balance cap of $1.6 million that limits the amount that can be held in the retirement (pension) phase.

The seminar provided an opportunity for participants to consider their circumstances, and how the changes might impact them.
