2019-20 Update on Super Rates and Thresholds, in brief, the ATO on 4 March 2019 have published the super rates and thresholds for the upcoming 2019/20 financial year.

There is no change to the concessional contribution (CC) cap of $25,000. Whilst indexation from 1 July 2017 increases in $2,500 increments, the AWOTE indexation was insufficient to trigger and increase. As a result, there is no change to the non-concessional contribution (NCC) cap of $100,000.
