Concessional is a term used to describe favourable tax treatment. For example, earnings in superannuation funds receive concessional tax treatment. The term 'concessional contributions' means that such contributions receive special tax treatment.
Concessional contributions are before-tax contributions that can include employer contributions, contributions made under a salary sacrifice arrangement and tax-deductible contributions by an individual.
