Finance Tip of the Month

Lauren Thiel - Founder of

Now is the time (before 30 June) to make voluntary self-contributions to your super if you are looking for some extra tax deductions.

Depending on some conditions (check with your super fund or accountant), you can make a contribution and then fill in an intent to claim form, submitted to your fund, and then claim a deduction for the amount of that contribution.

This brings down your taxable income and therefore should reduce your tax bill (or maybe even get you a little refund!).
