When it comes to maximising your retirement savings, Virtue & Partners give you peace of mind offering thoughtful, objective, and expert advice to meet any on-going legal requirements and make the most of government incentives on offer; all while paying as little taxation as possible.
We understand the increasingly complex issues and competitive environment of superannuation for both employers and individuals.

We all live in hope that, when we pass, we're not forgotten. We'd also like to believe that the money we've worked so hard for will set our kids and grandkids up for a better life.
But for those who don't have a plan in place and would rather leave this to chance, there's a risk that your wishes may not come true and your wealth is distributed in line with the state government formula that applies in your state/territory, possibly incurring higher tax liabilities.
One of the most important things you can do is plan ahead and ensure the people you care about are protected financially. Estate planning involves developing a strategy to deal with your assets after you die. Working in conjunction with your solicitor, Virtue & Partners can help ensure your assets pass smoothly to the right people and in the most tax-effective manner.
To make sure that your estate plan leaves nothing to chance and protects your family from needless financial or legal problems, contact Virtue & Partners for a review of your affairs.
With regular announcements of redundancies and hiring freezes across most sectors, it is now critical for executives and senior managers to understand the potential outcomes and options available when facing redundancy. In Australia, one in three executives can expect to face redundancy at some point in their lives (Sydney Morning Herald). In this situation, getting your finances under control helps reduce the stress on you and your family, and helps avoid costly mistakes.
Seeking advice is the first step in maximising your redundancy and turning it into a tool for long-term asset growth. Virtue & Partners can help you maximise the effectiveness of your redundancy payout and ensure minimal tax is applied.
If you've recently received a payout or are about to receive a redundancy, get in touch with Virtue & Partners to ensure your redundancy package works in your best interests.
