If you want to increase the amount you intend to claim as a deduction, you can do so provided you haven’t completed the tax return for the financial year in which you have made your contributions. You will need to lodge a second notice specifying the additional amount you wish to claim. For question 10 of the Notice of intent to claim or vary a deduction for personal super contributions form, ‘Is this varying an earlier notice?’ in section C, please place an ‘X’ in the ‘No’ box. 

If you want to reduce the amount you intend to claim as a deduction, you will need to lodge a variation to your original notice of intent sent to us. The variation replaces a previous valid notice and shows the amount of the contributions which you now want to claim as a tax deduction. For question 10 of the form ‘Is this notice varying an earlier notice?’ in section C, place an ‘X’ in the ‘Yes’ box. 

You can find further instructions for varying your notice of intent to claim a deduction for personal contributions on the ATO website here.

Please note that you can only vary a previous valid notice if we hold the full contribution covered by the previous valid notice, and you are still a member of the fund. We are not able to amend your notice for any contributions made to a previous super fund prior to rolling over your funds to Future Super.
