You cannot deduct under this Act a contribution you make to a fund or an *RSA to provide for *superannuation benefits payable for your *associate, to the extent that the associate's work for you relates to gaining or producing your *personal services income.

85-25(3)  

 View history reference
However, if subsection (2) applies, your deduction cannot exceed the amount you would have to contribute, for the benefit of the *associate, to a *complying superannuation fund or an *RSA in order to ensure that you did not have any *individual superannuation guarantee shortfalls in respect of the associate for any of the *quarters in the income year.

85-25(4)  

To work out the amount you would have to contribute for the purposes of subsection (3), the *associate's salary or wages, for the purposes of the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992, are taken to be the amount that neither section 85-10 nor 85-20 prevent you deducting for salary or wages you paid to the associate.
