The Australian superannuation system has compulsory super contributions. Generally, you’re entitled to super guarantee contributions from an employer if you’re 18 years old or over and paid $450 or more (before tax) in a month. 9.5% of your wage goes into your chosen super fund each pay day and grows over time.
Some people may have desired more flexibility and have set up a Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF).
We have the experience and the track record with all superannuation formats, both managed and self managed. Contact us to review your current Superannuation arrangements.
