Federal Budget 2017

Damian Toms, Senior Financial Planner from Mint Financial, has prepared an analysis on the 2017 Federal Budget. Damian is my go to person for Financial Planning services – hopefully you find the information below helpful.

Last night, Treasurer Scott Morrison delivered a Federal Budget for 2017 focused, on health, home and housing.

There were some changes that will impact financial plans in both a positive and negative manner. Some of the key measures include:

·  Increase in the Medicare Levy to 2.5% from 1 July 2019;

·  Introduction of a First home Super Savers Scheme that allows first home buyers to make voluntary pre-tax contributions to their super which can be used to fund a deposit on a home;

·  The ability for those over age 65 to downsize their home and make a non-concessional contribution to super of up to $300,000.
