Super co-contribution calculator

Takes 5 to 15 minutes to complete

The super co-contribution calculator?

You can use this calculator to estimate your super co-contribution entitlement and eligibility, based on information you provide about your:

  • total income
  • allowable business deductions
  • eligible personal super contributions

Information you need

You must enter the amounts of your:
  • eligible personal super contributions
  • income attributable to eligible employment-related activities and/or business income including business partnership distributions (where the partnership carries on a business)
  • any reportable fringe benefits amounts
  • any reportable employer super contributions
  • any other income

For individuals with business income, you must also enter the amount of business related deductions.

For more information about what you must enter, refer to Key Terms Explained.

For best results

The calculator estimates your 'total income' by adding together the amounts you provide at:

  • business income
  • income attributable to eligible employment-related activities
  • reportable fringe benefits
  • reportable employer super contributions [2009-10 income year onwards] and
  • other income
For the purposes of the income threshold test the calculator subtracts your allowable business deductions from your total income [2007-08 income year onwards].

For best results follow the instructions on each page. Ensure that all of your business income is recorded on the 'Income and deductions from carrying on a business' page and that the remainder of your income is split appropriately between the 'Income attributable to eligible employment-related activities' and 'Other income' pages.

For the purposes of the 10% 'eligible income' test, the calculator uses:

  • income attributable to eligible employment-related activities
  • reportable fringe benefits
  • reportable employer super contributions (2009-2010 income year onwards)
  • business income (2007-08 income year onwards)

Any information you provide on the 'Other income' page and/or as 'business income' for the income years before 2007-08 is not counted for the purposes of the '10% eligible income' test.

If you do not know whether you are eligible for a co-contribution, or have further questions, refer to Super co-contribution.
