Transaction costs

Our transaction costs generally cover the costs involved with selling and buying assets. The type of cost depends on the type of asset, and can include broker fees, stamp duty, and costs charged by stock exchanges.

Our annual fee caps could mean more money for you

To protect your super, we've lowered the cap on your administration fees and costs, so if you pay more than $875 a year, we'll refund the difference in July of the following financial year as a rebate. The cap came into effect on 1 July 2022 and will be paid as a refund from 1 July 2023.

More about the admin fee cap rebate

  • You're only eligible for a rebate if you still hold a QSuper Accumulation or Income account when we pay the rebate.
  • If you're eligible for an administration fee cap rebate of more than $25, we'll contact you with all the details, and it will appear in Member Online and on your annual statement.
  • The administration fee cap only applies to the administration fees and costs charged directly to your account.
  • If the value of your administration fee cap rebate is 5% or more of your balance, it will count towards your concessional contributions cap.

1. If your QSuper Accumulation account and QSuper Income account balances are less than $6,000 at the end of the financial year (30 June), certain administration and investment fees and costs charged to you are capped at 3% of the account balance. Any amount charged over that cap must be refunded. For more details, see the relevant QSuper product disclosure statement (PDS).
2. Please note as there are no unit prices for the Self Invest option, the administration fees and costs are calculated daily and deducted from your Self Invest transaction account monthly.
3. The investment fees and costs are estimates only, with the part that relates to costs the Trustee incurs based on costs for the year ended 30 June 2022. The actual amount you’ll be charged in the financial years after this will depend on the actual fees and costs the Trustee incurs in managing the investment option. Investment fees and costs includes an amount of 0.00% to 0.25% for performance fees. You can find out more about performance fees in ‘Additional explanation of fees and costs’ in the relevant PDS.
4. These rates exclude GST. GST is applied to the brokerage fee and you will be entitled to a credit of 75% on any GST paid.
