Superannuation & SMSF

Superannuation is one of the most complex, yet critical investment structures. We all depend on our super in future and need to start planning as early as possible to ensure that the most is being made of generous tax-concessions and available investment opportunities.

We can help you to make the most of your financial future by:

  • Analysing your current super fund/s to provide you with complete visibility via a fee and performance summary.
  • Explaining your options and then working with you to tailor a long-term plan
  • Consolidating multiple super accounts so that you can reduce your costs.
  • Developing an appropriate investment strategy for your situation.
  • Advising on a range of contribution strategies
  • Ensuring that you are maximising the tax concessions available via Superannuation as part of a comprehensive financial plan.
  • Providing specialist SMSF advice.

Along with the benefits that a Superannuation tax environment provides, there are numerous and strict laws regarding what you can and cannot do with your money. It always pays to get the advice of a professional to ensure you are maximising your financial potential within the framework of rules.

SMSFs can offer investors a range of additional opportunities and control, but with these benefits, comes additional regulation. It is important that you deal with a SMSF Specialist that can ensure your fund is structured correctly and is compliant with relevant legislation.

For most Australians, superannuation will be the most tax efficient investment they have.
