Don't Forget Mum.

Quite often the Mum’s out there take time off from their professional careers to help raise the family. Of course, this is also the case for many Dad’s out there. As this weekend is Mother’s Day, the focus should be on Mum. Being properly insured whilst working is one thing, but what about when you’re taking time off to be at home? Many insurance companies recognise the importance of “stay at home Mums” (or Dads) and essentially treat the role as a recognised occupation. And so they should. It’s one of the hardest occupations we can undertake. Being insured while you’re at home is important. Why? What if you become disable, or worse? What happens financially for you and your family then? These are things that should be considered in an insurance review. A consequence of having time off may be that returning to work may mean starting a new job with a new employer. In fact this can happen to anyone over the course of their career. One of the outcomes is a number of different superannuation funds maybe set up by various employers. This has a host of ramifications including inappropriate fund selection, doubling up on insurances and not to mention simply keeping track of them all. Part of any review process should include possible consolidation of your funds into one appropriately invested, cost effective fund. Insurances you may need are another opportunity to discuss and consider with a Financial Adviser. Be informed. Be curious. Be ready for the future you.

Made Personal Super Contributions This Year? You Need This Form.

If you have made personal super contributions this financial year, you may be eligible to claim these contributions as a tax deduction.

If you are eligible to claim on these contributions, you need to submit  the ATO's Notice Of Intent To Claim For Personal Superannuation Contribution Form with your super fund  and receive acknowledgement from the fund prior to lodging this years tax return.

That form you need is below.   Just tap on it, Save As, so you can print it out and complete.
I would be delighted to assist with lodging your completed ATO form with your super fund or to discuss this opportunity with you. 
Tax time is just around the corner - don't delay!  It cannot be claimed retrospectively.
