    Thanks Graham,
    Somehow that change missed me. It just gets more and more confusing.

    Hi Dave, the idea was scrapped after the public outcry. Article on it here.

    What happened to the lifetime limit of $500,000 non concessional contributions? Did legislation pass for it?

    It is worth pointing out that defined benefit pension recipients are at a real disadvantage because they cannot commute the portion of their super pension over $100K and withdraw it from the super system. They are therefore forced to pay higher tax on this portion of their pension and, as it increases with CPI over the coming years, an increasing percentage of it will be subject to tax. Unfair and retrospective.
