Super contributions and investment earnings are taxed at up to just 15 per cent compared to investments outside super that are taxed at your marginal rate which can be as high as 38.5% including medicare levy.
You can add to your superannuation without paying any contribution taxes. Or, like most, you can make sure that the contributions made by your employer are working best for you by engaging an advisor who can assist you in identifying asset classes you are best suited to.
Regardless of your age, you should consider a superannuation strategy now. By commencing your superannuation planning early, you will not only benefit from growth in the value of the underlying investments but you will also benefit from the magic of compounding returns.
Whilst you can access your superannuation by way of a pension after age 55 at a reduced tax rate, pension payments made after age 60 are completely tax free as are the earnings within the pension fund.
