Remember the motto, if you don't own something it can't be taken from you. In other words, if you don't own the house, it can't be taken into account for means testing purposes which I think is very likely when looking at future superannuation payouts. The latest Budget and the tax changes being implements all lead me to this view. The solution of course is to get smart and come to our next GRA seminar on 23 February (click here) where I'll canvass some of the views I have. Looking forward to seeing you there.
Hello Everyone I'm feeling pretty pleased that the Media is picking up the idea that having a Family Trust isn't just a nice "extra' in life but is going to become an "essential". Have a look at this link and you will see the interview I recently gave. Here is the link: https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/money/4613958/How-to-set-up-a-family-trust.
Hi Mathew. Thanks for meeting with us. I took your advice and have started on Property 101 and more than half way through. I now realise why you advised us to stay where we are and look for properties with land in Hamilton or Waiuku. Information, calculations and case studies in this book are priceless. I'm so glad you decided to write this book and managed to find time to do it. Thanks very much for this and for advising us to check with you should we need to. Thanks - Helen - July 2015
