Another excellent feature of being a member of BUSSQ is that your spouse can also make superannuation contributions for you. A spouse - for the purpose of making spouse contributions to your super fund is your husband, wife or de-facto partner (excluding same sex partner) who lives permanently with you on a bona fide domestic basis as your husband or wife at the time the superannuation contributions are made. Both you and your spouse must be Australian residents at the time the spouse contribution is made.
You can also make super fund contributions on behalf of your spouse in an account in their name. Spouse contributions made on behalf of a low-income or non-working spouse may qualify for a tax rebate. The maximum rebate for a year of income and reportable fringe benefits is $10,800 p.a. and reduces to zero when the spouse's assessable income and reportable fringe benefits reach $13,800 p.a.
Spouse contributions can only be accepted into your BUSSQ super account if, at any time the contributions are made:
