An integral part of growing your wealth and securing your financial future is receiving the correct investment advice and choosing the right type of assets to invest in. To reach your long-term financial goals there is certain amount of risk that needs to be taken. One way to manage that risk is to have a diversified investment portfolio.

Budgeting and Cashflow
Many people get excited about building wealth but sometimes before we can start saving or investing we need to take a step back and look at our current situation. You may think you don’t have the funds to start investing or wish to pay off that personal loan or debt that has been holding you back but not sure how to get there.
Our expert adviser will sit down with you and assess your current cash flow and will create a plan or budget that will enable you to successfully achieve your goals whatever they may be.
Tax planning advice
Having an understanding on how taxation works and how it affects you, can help you better prepare and manage your finances and hopefully end up saving money in the long run. Taxation can be very complicated and the rules and legislation are constantly changing. It is important to make sure you are aware of the current laws so that your personal finances and investments are managed in a tax-efficient way. Taxation planning forms an important component of your financial plan.
Your Barwon Financial Planner can incorporate effective tax planning strategies across your investment portfolio, personal payroll i.e. salary packaging or your family financial situation to lawfully help minimise the amount you have to pay.
Being made redundant can be a very stressful and confusing time for many. Either it be early in your working career, leaving you wondering how you will continue to support you and your family, or near the end, forcing you to retire before you are ready. Aside from the emotional effects of losing your job there is the financial side, one being the loss of your main source of regular income and the other your redundancy payout.
Some of the questions regarding your redundancy payout may include:
– Do you use the funds to pay off/reduce your mortgage or debt?
– What are the tax implications?
– Will this affect any Centrelink entitlements?
– Will I be entitled to any Centrelink benefits?
– Do I invest the funds and if so, what type of investment is right for me?
Barwon Financial Planning can help you understand your entitlements, discuss your options and recommend the best strategy for you and your family.
