June provides some opportunities for some last-minute tax planning. Some of the opportunities worth considering are:

Maximise superannuation contributions
This year the maximum deductible contribution to superannuation is $25,000. This figure includes any SG amount plus salary sacrifice. If you are below this figure, you can make a contribution to super and claim it as a tax
deduction. This is available for people up to age 74 (must meet “work test” if over 65). Note, this figure moves to $27,500 next financial year.

There are also catch-up facilities to make contributions in excess of $25,000 per annum. If you have not maxed out $25,000 in the last 3 years and your super balance is less than $500,000, you may be able to put a maximum of
$75,000 into super and claim a deduction. This is a really good opportunity to try and catch up on the years you could not maximise contributions.

Bring forward deductions
If you are paying income protection premiums on a monthly basis, you may want to consider paying 12 months in advance this month. This effectively brings forward your deduction, it may also save you money, as annual
premiums usually save around 10%.

The same theory works if you have an investment property loan. You may be able to prepay the interest for 12 months in advance to bring forward the deduction.
