A Great Way to Reduce Tax!

As we move closer to the end of the financial year (& another winter), some good news is on the horizon if you want to reduce your tax & improve your future retirement savings!

Now, retirement is a long way off for most of us, but “little drops of water make a mighty ocean”. Superannuation is no different.

For someone my age (38) earning $150,000 annually before tax, the impact of salary sacrificing $1,000 each yearly looks like this.

  • $1,000 extra goes into your super account.
  • $12 per week less in your salary
  • $390 each year saved on tax.

If you keep doing it until age 65, you will have more than an extra $65,000 in your super.

I love this website – https://paycalculator.com.au/ – it helps me understand how much tax I pay & the impact of a pay rise or salary sacrifice on my take-home pay!

Get in touch to chat or call us to know how we can help you find an extra $1,000 each year to put into your super – it could be via home loan savings or even better structuring & accountability on your cash flow.
