Another feature of being a member of BUSSQ is that your spouse can 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 (including same sex partner) who lives permanently with you 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 to an account in their name. Spouse contributions made on behalf of a spouse that is not working, has a low income, or is only working part time may qualify for a tax offset. The maximum offset for a year of income and reportable fringe benefits is $37,000 p.a. and reduces to zero when the spouse's assessable income and reportable fringe benefits reach $40,000 p.a. (for the 2018-19 financial year).
Spouse contributions can only be accepted into your BUSSQ super account if, at the time the contributions are made:
