Non-concessional is a special term associated with after-tax super contributions. 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.
Non-concessional contributions are after-tax contributions including spouse contributions and contributions made under the Super Co-contribution Scheme.
Non-concessional contributions were previously known as undeducted contributions.
