The KiwiSaver year ends on 30th June. Provided you are over 18, have been in KiwiSaver for the full year, and have contributed at least $1,043, you will be entitled to the full member tax credit of $521.43. This maximum tax credit of $521.43 equates to 50 cents for every dollar of member contribution up to a maximum of $1,043.
KiwiSaver members can make voluntary contributions up to 30th June to ensure that they have contributed $1,043 and receive the full member tax credit.
Where someone has joined KiwiSaver part-way through a year, they will receive a member tax credit based on the number of days in the year they have been a member of the scheme.
