Income Tax Concessions for Superannuation Contributions

NTGPASS does not accept pre-tax superannuation contributions from employment outside the NT Public Service. This means that salary sacrifice, employer contributions {such as superannuation guarantee) and tax deductible contributions (from self-employed members) cannot be made to NTGPASS.
