  • Total contributions

    Total contributions are all the amounts contributed to, received by, credited or otherwise attributed to your account for the financial year, before any tax or expenses were debited from your account.

    None of this amount counts towards either of your contributions caps unless it included a FHSA related payment transferred to the super fund prior to 1 July 2015.

    If this includes the amount transferred from your FHSA or FHSA government contributions paid to your super fund, that part of your total contributions counts towards your non-concessional contributions cap.

    The amount at Total contributions must be:

    • equal to the sum of all the labels for an SMSF (as their return includes the balancing item Any other contributions)
    • equal to or greater than the sum of all the other labels for an APRA regulated fund.

    For an APRA regulated fund, this label will include amounts not reported at other labels, such as:

    • other contributions received for you – for example, employer contributions made to a constitutionally protected fund
    • super co-contributions received for you
    • the tax-free component of a DTP
    • the amount of applicable fund earnings transferred from a foreign super fund or scheme that you elected to have included in the fund's assessable income
    • the amount transferred from your FHSA and any FHSA government contribution paid to your fund after the transfer prior to 1 July 2015
    • last-minute employer contributions that the trustee of a public sector super scheme has chosen not to include in assessable income.
