Did you know that if you’re aged between 60 and 64, you can access your super if you change jobs – without retiring permanently? Just by leaving a job you’ll be able to access a full pension or a lump sum.

Below 60 you can access your super only if you can show you intend to retire permanently. From 65 your super is all yours!

“Gig economy” platforms like Airtasker allow you to earn some extra cash by completing a huge range of odd jobs – from gardening to data entry and even standing in line for concert tickets!

Unfortunately you must declare this income in your tax return and keep records of the amounts you earn. To make matters worse, if you earn $75,000 a year or more, you must register for GST and most users will also require an ABN.

To be certain that you are avoiding the ATO's eye, come and see us before you make any changes to your loan.

Family trusts (discretionary trusts in general) have the advantage of allowing income to be distributed to family members, associated entities, and the like. However, the trust is obligated to make a decision on the distribution amounts by 30 June each year

This poses a conundrum of sorts. How does a trust decide on how much to distribute to each person before the year has even ended? It's not until months after the end of the year that the trustees are aware of the actual profit figure

Formulas is how. The trust will need to decide what proportion each person gets, so when the actual figures are worked out you can just apply the formula

Oh, and the decision to distribute has to be in writing, dated 30 June or earlier... in the event of an audit the ATO will require this
