Growing your super and saving on tax aren't mutually exclusive - they go hand-in-hand through salary sacrifice. You'll be the one feeling the benefits of it later.
Grow your super
Tipping in some of your before-tax salary into your super could surprise you in the future. You can put in as little or as much as you can afford each financial year up to $25,000 (this includes employer contributions). How does $30 from your weekly pay sound?
Save on tax
Before-tax salary put directly into super is only taxed at 15%. If this is less than your normal income tax rate, you could save more in super than you would have if you chose to received it in your normal pay packet.
So the choice is yours - $20 in your pocket now or $25* in your super.
For every $30 you earn before you're taxed...
you could get $20 in your pocket after tax...
OR $25 into your super account.
This could add up to a tidy sum for when retire.
