Retirement planning & enjoying the fruits of your labour.
A successful retirement means different things to different people. But whether it's quality time with loved ones, seeing the world, volunteering or spending more time in the garden, one thing is for sure — no one wants to spend their golden years stressed by financial concerns.
The concept of retirement has changed dramatically in recent years. Only 20 years ago, it meant a few quiet years of rest after a hard life of work. But, with better health and life expectancy rates, retirement today could mean more time for sports and leisure, quality years with the family, travelling the world, moving to the beach, or doing something you've always wanted to.
A bit of careful planning can help to eliminate the worry of not having enough to live on. Wherever you are on your road to retirement, it's never too early to start planning. Even if you feel you’ve left things a little late, planning now can still make a real difference.
By the time you retire, superannuation may be your second most valuable asset behind your home.
Superannuation can provide large tax benefits as opposed to other ways of investing. We focus on two things — reviewing your super for max potential and finding any lost super you may have.
In our experience, SMSFs are popular with Australian investors who are seeking:
Choice — to access a wide range of investment options.
Control — to pool family assets, make active decisions to grow wealth for retirement and build a strategy for their beneficiaries and their own later years.
Flexibility — to change investments and the structure of their super as needed, and to implement effective tax strategies.
Transparency — to have greater visibility over how their investments are tracking.
We are accredited to advise on SMSF's and can help you to weigh up the options when considering a SMSF and make the most of a fund already in place. We work alongside your accountant or fund administrator to help you understand the rules, avoid the pitfalls and utilise the potential for your fund.
