2013 Pre-budget submission to the Treasurer

On 12 December 2012, the Treasurer, the Hon Wayne Swan MP, called for submissions from Australians for the 2013-2014 federal budget, to be handed down in May 2013.

AIST's recommendations include providing all workers with the ability to salary sacrifice, extending the SG to self-employed Australians, adding super to parental leave or baby bonus payments, a one-off super payment to older workers seeking to return to work after family breaks and removing restrictions on the co-contribution.
