Superannuation

As the Government encourages Australians to take responsibility for and reach their financial retirement goals, citizens are repeatedly required to deal with superannuation funds. Self-managed superannuation is a means of saving for retirement. It enables you to control your investment strategy, reduce tax while obtaining tax benefits, and control administration costs.

Superannuation law is a delicate area and personalised planning is required for each individual. The team at Fahey & Walsh are superannuation experts who can assist in establishing a superannuation fund that will effectively enable you to reach your financial retirement goals.
