August 2020 Newsletter

In this month’s newsletter, we begin with a summary of the ‘mini-budget’ by Treasurer Josh Frydenberg. This article provides an economic and financial update, detailing the impact of COVID-19 and the new and existing support provided to individuals, households, and businesses.

Our animation illustrates the strategic three-bucket approach to retirement investing to help mitigate certain retirement-related risks and provide for your retirement lifestyle needs and wants. We then explore the ins and outs of work-related home office expenses, as flexible working arrangements such as working remotely are becoming more common.

The receipt of your annual super statement can often take place in August — we provide an annual super statement review checklist to help you with staying actively engaged and well-informed on your super. Lastly, there’s a motivational video by entrepreneur Tom Bilyeu regarding your tax refund this year and things to consider on how to make the most of it.
