Bye Bye Email Appointment setting.


Say goodbye to the text and email back and forth tag game to find the perfect meeting time.


Your job, your lifestyle, your family circumstance can change quickly.  Your super should reflect all your life changes as quickly as you do.

In the new year, make it your resolution to have a check up on your latest super statement + insurances.  


Need a return Uber ex Brisbane CBD?  It’s on me.  Just let me know when you make your online Calendly appointment.

The wet season in Queensland normally means December through to February is particularly slow.  

That being the case, why not set aside an hour during your next hitch break to review your latest super statement?  Make a Calendly appointment with me for an online chat, a phone conversation or face to face appointment at our Hamilton Office for a coffee (I make a pretty mean latte)...

During our catch up, we can have a look at your superannuation returns for the year and see if we can improve on that for you.

It’s an opportunity to discuss the state of the industry and I’m more than happy to share any current opportunities within the industry that I hear about via my client base and network.

If you’re not happy with the returns your super fund is producing, don’t ignore it. Do something about it. You work hard for your money.  Make sure you super is working hard for you now, so you don’t have to later in life.

What the Federal Budget means for you.

With a federal election looming, the 2019/2020 Federal Budget aims to deliver tax cuts to low and middle income workers and small businesses, superannuation tweaks for older Australians, and energy assistance payments. Keep in mind that a fair chunk of the below policies depend on the Coalition government winning re-election in May – although Labor has announced bipartisan support for some.  But here's what this year's Federal Budget essentially means for you.  Tax cuts for low- and middle-income earners. The government aims to reduce taxes for low to middle income earners through additional targeted offsets that aims to benefit over 10 million Australians.  The big winners from this year's federal budget are middle income workers earning between $48,000 and $90,000, who will receive an maximum tax cut of up to $1,080 for single earners. For a dual income family where two individuals earn in that range, the tax relief will total $2,160.  Labor says they'll support these per…

Are You Entitled to Long Service Leave in the Mining Industry?

I often get asked about eligibility for long-service leave.
There seems to be a little bit of confusion surrounding this topic. 
Traditionally, long service leave applies to an employee who has been with the same employer for several years (typically 8-10).
Depending on the industry, an amount of leave is available after that time.  For example, some industries provide 1.3 weeks of long service leave for each completed year of service.After 10 years they are eligible for 13 weeks.
Of course, if you leave that employer prior to the 10 years, it’s unlikely any accrued amount will be paid out and in most cases, it’s not transferable to the next employer.
In the Coal Mining Industry, things are a little different.  In 1992, the Australian Government introduced the Coal Mining Industry (Long Service Leave) Administration Act.
It’s a complicated piece of legislation.However, the idea is to allow eligible employees to transport their accrued long-service leave from one employer to the next.

What will 19 hold for you?

Most of us are starting to think about getting back into work mode – or perhaps you are back at work already.
Don’t worry, this is not going to be one of those “let’s look back over the last 12 months” chats where we remember which celebrities are no longer or who won major sporting events.
What should you expect from the next 12 months? Well, nobody knows.  However, there is one certainty.  Markets will go up and markets will go down.  
Consider this.  The Australian equities market is still approximately 18% below where it was 11 years ago so there’s plenty of upside just to get back to where it was.  In terms of your superannuation, you need to consider your time horizon, i.e. how long will it be invested for before you can access it.
For a 35-year-old, they face another 30 years before they can access their super at age 65. Not only that, once they do retire at 65, they’re not going to take their super and spend it in one go.   They’re going to use it to produce an income in retiremen…
