Tuesday, September 27, 2016
Changes are afoot for superannuation. Change brings uncertainty. And opportunity. These proposals are likely to impact many Australians. It pays to take a closer look.
Proposed superannuation changes - by Angus Dockrill, IMFG Director and Wealth Specialist
Superannuation remains a tax effective structure to build retirement wealth. However, with proposed changes coming, it is timely to take a closer look. The already retired or close to retired may need to restructure your retirement plan. Those in their 40's, 30's and 20's will have need to plan earlier and not rely on a "She'll be right" attitude in achieving and maintaining your long term financial security.
The attached INFOGRAPHIC highlights some of these proposed changes, noting these are proposals only and are not yet law (as at September 2016).
If you are considering any change to your use of superannuation or your broader financial plan, we recommend you seek specialist financial advice before doing so.
