The Government has “committed to making no further major changes to superannuation taxation” says Assistant Treasurer Stuart Robert.
The Minister told the Alliance for a Fairer Retirement System summit that instead “the focus on any future change will be to simplify Super where ever possible or lessen any burden”.
“The Government is committed to the smooth, ongoing implementation of the superannuation taxation package, to ensure that it remains fair and effective,” said Robert.
The Government still intends to make a number of changes to super – some of which are before the Parliament, and some which the Assistant Treasurer announced at the summit. He announced three measures aimed at “minor but important issues that affect retirees”.
