If your combined income and super contribution exceed the Division 293 threshold, you pay additional tax on the super contribution which reduces the tax concession. The additional 15% tax is payable on either the amount of the super contribution or the amount that is over the threshold – whichever amount is lower.

For individuals, the Division 293 threshold for the 2017-2018 financial year and onwards is $250,000.


Division 293 income $240,000
Division 293 super contributions   $20,000
Total $260,000

Division 293 tax payable is the lesser of Division 293 super contributions ($20,000) or the amount above the $250,000 threshold ($10,000). Consequently, in this example Division 293 tax payable is 15% of $10,000, which is $1,500.
