What it means for your savings and super plans

Member Events - 14 Jun 2016

There has been much discussion surrounding the 2016/17 Federal Budget after it was released earlier this month, with changes to key elements of the systems that will affect an individual’s financial future. Many people remain unclear as to exactly how these changes will affect their personal finances.

We have partnered up with nationally recognised financial planners and IPAA WA Premier Corporate Member StatePlus, to help you understand exactly what this budget means for you. 

This session provided insights on how personal finances and superannuation are set to be impacted by the 2016/17 Federal Budget.

Topics Discussed

  • Overview of budget – what do we know so far?
  • The devil in the detail – how will I be affected?
  • Industry opinion/perspective – what are the experts saying?
  • An election sort of budget – where to from here and will anything actually change?
