Two superannuation bills, which include the proposed introduction of the $1.6 million transfer balance cap and changes to concessional contributions, have been passed by both houses.

The Treasury Laws Amendment (Fair and Sustainable Superannuation) Bill 2016 and the Superannuation (Excess Transfer Balance Tax) Imposition Bill 2016 has been passed by both houses, according to the Parliament of Australia website.

The Treasury Laws Amendment (Fair and Sustainable Superannuation) Bill 2016 amends five acts including a $1.6 million cap on the amount of capital that can be transferred to the tax-free earnings retirement phase of superannuation.

The bill also proposes the reduction to the threshold at which high-income earners pay division 293 tax on their concessional taxed contribution to superannuation to $250,000.

Both houses have also passed Superannuation (Excess Transfer Balance Tax) Imposition Bill 2016 2016 which imposes an excess transfer balance tax on the notional earnings of capital moved into a retirement phase superannuation account that is in excess of $1.6 million.
