superannuation

Why is super important?

  • Superannuation has been designed to provide you with an income when you retire.

  • Saving through superannuation is more tax-effective than any other types of savings or investments.

  • Accumulating superannuation ensures that you achieve your financial goals and secure the retirement you would like to attain.

Superannuation is fast becoming the largest asset for many Australians. As a result, seeking professional advice is necessary to ensure you’re making the most of this tax-effective investment vehicle. We can assist with the appropriate superannuation structure for you and recommend strategies for growing your super balance, such as how to purchase property using your super. We keep abreast of relevant legislation to ensure you take advantage of all strategies available to you.

The magic to growing your super is to:

  • Start young

  • Start saving now

  • Retire on 70% of your income

  • Take advantage of the snowball effect – compound interest

  • Save at least 10% of your salary each year
