Tax Planning Strategies

You can save on your taxes in many different ways, just remember to always keep your investment plans in

mind. Make sure you give yourself a lot of time to review everything before tax time.


Some ways to save on your taxes are:

  • contribute as much as you can to your superannuation
  • take as many deductions as you are legally able
  • look into tax effective investments.


Some deductions that may be available are:

  • Self-employed superannuation contributions up to your maximum deductible contributions
  • Income protection premiums
  • Deductible amount for pensions/annuities
  • Interest/fees on borrowing for investment purposes


There are three main types of tax-effective investments:

  1. Retirement income stream investments - Any fund earnings are tax-free and you can defer lump sum tax on
    eligible termination payments. Income payments are taxed at marginal tax rates (Personal income tax rates),
    however a 15% tax rebate may be claimable and a tax-free amount available.
    For example – Allocated pensions and annuities.
  2. Superannuation - Taxed at 15% on investment returns. You can defer lump sum tax by rolling over eligible
    termination payments.
  3. Shares & Managed Investments - On franked dividends a credit is given for the company tax already paid.
    These credits, known as the imputation credits, can reduce your income tax.
