Many of our clients have chosen to implement their own retirement income plans.

Assistance for farm clients
Our community, and our firm, is heavily dependant on the success of our rural producers.
In times of hardship caused by hailstorms, flood, droughts, and bushfires, goverment assistance can reduce the stress on your family and the farm business.
We can help you identify the assistance that suits your needs and draft applications.
The assets test usually limits access to the Age pension for our farmer clients.
Stamp duty on the sale of land can make it very expensive to transfer farms to the next generation.
With our knowledge of Centrelink rules and the current stamp duty exemption for inter-generational transfers, we have helped clients pass on the family farm while still allowing peace of mind by securing access to the family home and significant income and assets in addition to the Age pension.
The decision to move to Aged Care accommodation can be difficult to make, especially if financial and tax considerations add to the important emotional issues arising from this major change in lifestyle.
We have helped many clients plan in advance so that the financial impact is reduced.
Please speak to us if you see this as being an issue for you.
