A useful way to achieving this is to put together a budget so that you know where your money is going as well keeping a lid on how much you spend on each item. While keeping track of your expenses can be difficult, there are a number of tools available which may make this process simpler. Consider setting up a regular savings plan via direct debit from your bank account to ensure the process is automatic without you needing to remember each time. To work out whether you are making the best use of your income surplus to build wealth, compare the equivalent after tax return under each scenario. Tax efficiency Average tax rate = Tax Paid/Total Income = 26.07% How much tax do you pay for every To reduce your tax liabilities, consider the use of expenses that are allowable tax deductions.

Check to see if you are entitled to any tax offsets or whether you should alter your investment strategy to take advantage of any tax offsets such as spouse superannuation contributions or imputation credits. If you have any investments, review the ownership structure so that you hold it in the name of the entity that is on a lower tax rate.

3 Debt management Based on information supplied by you, we provide a snapshot of your debt position and the impact on your loan term and interest repayments in various scenarios. Your current debt position is as follows: Liabilities Balance ($) Interest rate (%) Interest payment ($) Total Repayments ($) Repayment Frequency Home loan* $1,100, % $48,510 $48,504 Monthly Investment loan* $916, % $40,396 $40,392 Monthly Personal loan $0 0 $0 $0 N/A Others $0 0 $0 $0 N/A Total $2,016,000 $88,906 $88,896 * Based on the figures supplied by you, you are paying interest only on these loans. Level of Debts Debt to Assets Ratio = Total Debts/Total Assets Debt Coverage = 54.86% Interest to Income Ratio = Interest repayments/total Income Average Debt to Assets ratio over time = 32.60% How much of your income is going to repaying interest?

You loan providers might have different methods of crediting payments.

4 Consider having your salary directly credited into your home loan or mortgage offset account. Use a credit card to pay for living expenses and pay off the credit card debt within the interest free period. This effectively reduces the loan balance used to calculate your interest, thereby reducing the amount of interest payable. If you have more than one loan, consider consolidating all inefficient debt into the loan that has the lowest interest rate such as your home mortgage. If you have any cash, consider depositing this into the mortgage offset account or home loan. You can always redraw or drawdown the offset account if you need the funds. Risk analysis Based on information supplied by you, we provide a snapshot of your financial exposure in the event of death, disability and critical illness. Financial exposure in the event of death Have you thought about all the expenses How much do you need? that might be incurred if you pass away? Initial expenses Amount Pay off debts 2,016,000 Funeral expenses 9,000 Estate administration 10,000 Total initial required 2,035,000 Ongoing expenses Annual Amount No. of Years Lump sum equivalent Living expenses for dependants 0 N/A 0 Children s education costs 0 N/A 0 Childcare costs 0 N/A 0 Domestic assistance 0 N/A 0 Total amount for ongoing needs 0 Total amount needed 2,035,000 What resources can you draw on? Calculation methodology Funerals can cost from $4,000 for a basic cremation to around $14,000 for a more elaborate casket, burial and flowers according to ASIC s research report (2012). We have used $9,000 in the calculation since it is the mid-point of the range. Living expenses for financial dependants are assumed to be 60% of current living expenses until the youngest child turns 18. Beyond this point, the remaining partner or spouse will be self-funding their cost of living. Please note the calculations do not take into account the effects of inflation or time value of money. This may overestimate the amount required if investment returns are above inflation and underestimate if the returns are below inflation. Children s average lifetime education costs per child for low income, middle income and high income families are $11,038, $22,322 and $95,804 respectively (source AMP.NATSEM The cost of raising children in Australia May 2013). In this calculation we divide the cost by 13 for each year of schooling to arrive at an annual figure. This translates to $849, $1,717 and $7,370 for low, middle and high income families respectively. Childcare costs assumed to be $100 per day. We have used an annual figure of $22,000 to cover a period of 44 weeks at 5 days per week. For domestic assistance we have included the cost of a nanny or au pair. Based on advertised services this can range from $170 to $340 per week. In this calculation, we have assumed a rate of $250 per week for 40 weeks which will continue until the youngest child turns 13. Have an estate plan with up-to-date wills and powers of attorney Confirm who your beneficiaries are in the event you pass away Have an open discussion with family on these matters to ensure your intentions are clear Consider any guardianships for young children Financial exposure in the event of disability and inability to work How will your family pay How much do you need? for medical expenses if you suffer an illness or Initial expenses injury that stops you Debts 2,016,000 from working?
