I want to … minimise my tax 

Tax law can be complicated and you need to be very careful that the strategies you employ are not deemed to fall under the general anti-avoidance rule (Part IVA) by the ATO. If unsure best to speak to a tax specialist before entering into any tax-effective investment strategies. Not all tax effective strategies have to involve Caribbean shelf companies, many are just common sense whilst others require careful planning and discussions with a professional to make that it fits in with your objectives.

 

Have you considered:

  • Using your mortgage offset account more effectively instead of a regular savings account where earnings are taxed at your marginal tax rate?
  • Is a discretionary family trust appropriate for you?
  • Is using superannuation an appropriate investment vehicle where the tax rate is only 15% in most cases?
  • Are insurance or education bonds appropriate for you and your objectives?
  • Can debt recycling help you pay off your loan sooner?
  • Can salary sacrificing help you reduce your overall tax liability?
  • Is gearing an appropriate investment strategy? An example would be borrowing funds to purchase an investment property.
