Tuesday 30 May 2017 6.30 to 8.30pm Cost: $230 (incl gst) (presented by Bryce Figot)

  • key rules

  • traps (including the top seven instances where it’s best to not use the relief)

  • strategies to maximise the value delivered to clients

MASTERCLASS TOPIC 2 - New contribution and pension rules

Wednesday 7 June 2017 6.30 to 8.30pm Cost: $230 (incl gst) (presented by Rebecca James)

The introduction of concepts like the transfer balance cap and the total superannuation balance cause a significant change in the traditional approach to making contributions and starting pensions. This session will examine:

  • key rules from 1 July 2017

  • top case studies to apply to add value to clients.

MASTERCLASS TOPIC 3 - Changes for succession planning

The introduction of the transfer balance cap, in conjunction with Law Companion Guideline 2017/3 (finalised on 8 May) means that many superannuation succession plans need revisiting. This session will examine:
