Tax Planning
accordion-minusaccordion-plus

Tax planning is a key element of wealth creation. Salary packaging, superannuation, investments and tax deductible debt can create significant tax savings. By structuring your finances more efficiently you can manage the amount of tax you pay.

Tax planning can involve:

  • Maximising your after tax income
  • Remuneration packaging (salary packaging)
  • Capital Gains Tax (CGT) management
  • Gearing
  • Investing in shares that offer 100% franked dividends
  • Borrowing to invest
  • Small business and capital gains tax exemptions (particularly relevant to superannuation)
  • Generic tax planning advice

Because there are so many factors that contribute to the amount of tax you pay, it is important to obtain comprehensive advice.


General tax advice

For general tax advice, you should talk to your accountant. Morgans does not provide tax advice, however our investment advice and financial strategies may be structured in a way that can reduce tax and increase after tax returns on your portfolio.

For help with structuring your investments and superannuation to maximise your after tax income, contact a Morgans Hobart adviser.

Fixed Interest
accordion-minusaccordion-plus

Morgans Hobart prides itself on providing a complete solution to all your financial needs. In addition to providing a range of share investment options, our advisers are able to include cash investment alternatives as part of your broader investment strategy.

As a Morgans client, you have access to advice and research across a wide range of listed and unlisted income and fixed interest securities.

Services available:

Income-focussed share portfolios

We specialise in building dedicated income-focussed portfolios for investors. Ask us how you can improve your income today.

Cash management accounts

We offer a range of at-call cash facilities paying attractive interest rates. Our preferred products provide you with direct bank deposits in your name with some of Australia's best known banks, all with "at-call" convenience, which means you can readily access your money.

These accounts can be linked directly to your share trading account for easy settlement. You can also have your dividend and interest payments credited directly to the account and make regular payments from it.

Your adviser can handle all the paperwork as well as ongoing transactional instructions, freeing you of the administrative burden.

Term deposits

A term deposit is a deposit held at a financial institution that has a fixed term, generally paying a higher interest rate than an "at-call" account. You can use a term deposit to enhance the returns on surplus cash balances and as the foundation for building a dedicated income portfolio.

Morgans has preferential relationships with a host of leading banks and other Authorised Deposit taking Institutions (ADIs). Funds can be swept from your "at-call" account and invested for the term and interest rate that best suits your needs.

Foreign currency term deposits

A foreign currency term deposit is a foreign denomination held at a financial institution that has a fixed term. Rates offered are very attractive on deposit amounts of AUD100,000 or greater.

Flexible/structured term deposits

Flexible term deposits offer the ability to combine both floating and fixed interest rate payments within a single deposit. This allows investors to structure interest payments based on their view of future interest rate levels. Morgans offers these products on deposit amounts of $100,000 or greater.

Listed debt and hybrid investments

As a major participant in the Australian listed fixed interest securities market, we can offer you advice as well as a range of new investment opportunities from a range of Australia's largest banks and industrial companies.

Listed debt and hybrid investments deliver higher levels of income, paid regularly; some also offer the benefits of franking. Your adviser can build a tailored income portfolio for you, which unlike managed fund alternatives, can be constructed to take into account your specific objectives and risk profile.

Government and corporate bonds

We offer a comprehensive Government bond investment service, including custody facilities. Bonds improve portfolio diversification and help reduce portfolio risk while providing stable income.

The yields on Government bonds will generally be lower than most other interest rate investments but provide absolute security when held to maturity.

Larger investors can also access the wholesale corporate bond market.

For more information or a term deposit interest rate quote please contact a Morgans Hobart adviser.

Margin Lending
accordion-minusaccordion-plus

Margin lending is borrowing money which you use, in addition to your own money, to invest in financial products such as shares and managed funds.

Essentially, you are "leveraging" the value of your investments through borrowing.

You must have adequate cash or existing shares to use as security for the loan. Only certain shares can be used as security and the amount that can be borrowed will vary for different shares.

Benefits
  • Margin lending can give you an opportunity to increase the size of your investments and to diversify your investments. Diversifying your portfolio can reduce your level of risk in the market.
  • It can also provide an opportunity to increase the gross return on your own equity by achieving excess returns over tax and borrowing costs.
  • Borrowing also allows you to invest at a time you want to invest, rather than having to wait until you have saved enough. This can help you avoid missing out on investment opportunities.
  • Interest on borrowed funds is generally tax deductible provided the funds are invested in Australian assets for income-producing purposes.

Please note: Deriving a tax benefit should not be your core focus. You should seek qualified tax advice from a registered tax agent so that you fully understand your personal tax position.

Borrowing limits

Margin lenders generally only allow you to borrow up to a certain value, or percentage, of the shares you wish to buy.

Commonly, limits are set at a maximum of 75% (known as the Loan-to- Value Ratio or LVR) of the value of the shares (less if the share is more speculative or risky). This means you have to make up the difference (ie 25%) with your own cash or existing shares.

This difference is referred to as the “margin”; hence the term “margin lending”.

Borrowing risks

Any borrowing strategy should always be approached with caution.

While borrowing to invest has the ability to leverage returns from investments, it also heightens investment risk. This is because you have a greater amount invested, which will magnify your losses if returns are negative.

Margin lending should be implemented as a long-term investment strategy to allow time to overcome any market volatility and for the leveraging effects to work.

Contact us

Borrowing to invest can be an effective long term strategy for wealth creation as long as you understand the risks and the impact gearing may have on your overall returns.

Contact your Morgans Hobart adviser to seek advice on whether utilising a margin lending strategy is appropriate for you.

Personal Insurance
accordion-minusaccordion-plus

The team at Morgans Hobart stays informed on the vast number of personal insurance products in today’s market. We can provide you with advice to help you select the right cover to protect you in the event you need it.

Half of all Australians over the age of 30 will suffer a major illness that can lead to a long-term disability, and consequently, a long-term loss of income.

Could you afford to take several months off work without pay? If you are self-employed, could your business survive if you weren't around? If the answer is no, then it is important to look at protecting yourself against these risks.

Type of protection
Life insurance

The most common component of a risk insurance solution is life insurance. How it works is straight forward – in the event you die, your beneficiaries (spouse, children, business partners, whomever is nominated) will receive a lump sum payment.

This could be any amount up to millions of dollars to cover all loans and debts you may have, and to cover the future well being of your loved ones.

Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance

TPD insurance covers you in the event you're totally and permanently disabled and unable to work due to illness or injury. In the event this occurs, you will receive a lump sum payment.

Income protection

Income protection provides income replacement options to protect your lifestyle, assets and independence if you suffer illness or injury. It will provide a monthly payment of up to 75% of your income while you are unable to work due to accident or sickness.

Trauma insurance

Trauma insurance protects you from serious medical conditions and illnesses. You will receive a lump sum payment if you are diagnosed with or suffer a life-threatening illness, allowing you to concentrate on what you really need at this time – your recovery.

Business expense insurance

Business expense insurance covers any ongoing expenses of your business, such as rent, salaries, electricity and loan repayments, or bringing in a locum to run the business while the primary income generator is unable to work due to sickness or injury.

If you are the primary income generator in a small business, or if you are self employed, you should consider this sort of cover.

How can we help?

Given the vast number of personal insurance products on the market, it can be difficult deciding on the right cover for your situation.

It is our job to understand every detail of all available products so that we can recommend policies and strategies that suit your individual needs and budget. We can also advise you on ways that your policy can be structured to save you money.

Superannuation Advice
accordion-minusaccordion-plus

Superannuation is arguably the most tax-effective method of saving for your retirement. For many of us, it is the largest asset we have, apart from our homes.

With a variety of contribution options, superannuation can be a complex area for the uninformed.

It's important to form a strategy to make the most of the tax concessions, financial incentives and rebates. This will help to ensure your superannuation savings provide a comfortable standard of living in retirement.

Strategy

By forming a strategy, you may take advantage of:

  • Transition to Retirement (TTR) rules
  • Choice of superannuation
  • Self Managed Superannuation Funds(SMSF)
  • Salary packaging (also known as salary sacrifice)
  • Retirement income streams

How to make contributions
  • Employer Super Guarantee Contributions
  • Employee – Salary sacrifice contributions
  • Salary forfeited as contributions to super instead of taking as taxable income.
  • Employee – Voluntary contributions (after tax)
  • Could be eligible for Government co-contribution payments if other conditions are met.
  • Self employed – deductible contributions or non-deductible contributions
  • Not working and under 65 – (non-deductible)
  • Ability to make deductible contributions will depend on taxable income.
  • Spouse – spouse splitting of spouse contributions, or contributions on behalf of a spouse.

You can view the new superannuation thresholds for 2023/24 here.

How to enjoy your income in retirement

Your decision about where and how your money is invested in superannuation could increase your income in a number of ways.

By rolling your superannuation money into a pension income stream at or after retirement, you can:

  • generate more tax-effective income
  • receive more generous Centrelink treatment
  • have the flexibility to decide how your assets will be left to your beneficiaries.
  • Account-based pensions are the most common form of superannuation pension. They are specifically derived from superannuation money.

The pension income is paid from the balance of the money remaining in the your superannuation fund each year until it runs out. Payments can commence following full retirement after preservation age, or if you are permanently unable to work due to invalidity, or at age 65 regardless of whether retired or not at that time.

An account-based pension can offer a range of flexible investment options. You can position your investments so they are more effective in meeting income and growth needs in retirement.

This flexibility means control is ultimately retained by you over the level of investment risk and return within the fund.

Wealth+ SMSF Solution
accordion-minusaccordion-plus

Wealth+ SMSF Solution is our self managed super fund (SMSF) administration service that incorporates the establishment, management, administration and investment advice for your fund.

Simply put, this offering allows you to take advantage of the flexibility and control of an SMSF while outsourcing the work involved in establishing and running your fund.

Trust Deed establishment

You will receive a Reckon Docs Pty Ltd SMSF Trust Deed, which is a high quality SMSF Trust Deed, drafted by SMSF specialists with the client in mind.

Fund administration

This includes:

  • Preparation and maintenance of all statutory member records and reporting
  • Preparation of annual financial reports
  • Advice on compliance with the fund’s trust deed and the SIS Act and Regulations
  • Arranging annual audit in accordance with instructions from trustees
  • Liaison with external auditors in all matters relating to the fund preparation and lodgement of income tax return

  • Preparation of minutes of trustee meetings
  • Maintenance of accounting records
  • Contribution reporting
  • Monitoring compliance of investments held against the fund’s investment strategy
  • Obtaining actuarial certificate, as required by legislation
  • Preparation of withdrawal and pension documentation

Investment management

Your SMSF investments are managed through our Wealth+ Managed Portfolio Service, which provides you with comprehensive reporting on your fund portfolio and investments, in addition to your annual member statement.

Benefits of Wealth+:

  • you maintain control over investment decisions, but outsource professional management and administration of your portfolio, leaving time for you and your adviser to take a pro-active approach to investing - including recommending changes if considered appropriate
  • if required, we provide regular income payments to designated accounts or to meet your regular payment needs. You have a choice of some of the leading cash management providers and receive comprehensive portfolio reporting

Investment advice

You'll have access to the expertise of one of Australia's largest stockbroking and wealth management networks.

Your adviser is supported by Morgans research on companies and is kept updated on any superannuation and legislation changes. This provides you with sound advice for your SMSF investment strategy.

Saves you time

With your Morgans adviser being your one point of contact for your SMSF, you can eliminate several visits to different professionals that you would require if administering the SMSF on your own – such as an accountant or lawyer for your trust deed, an accountant for your administration, an auditor for your annual fund audit and a financial adviser for your investment strategy and advice.

Tax and pensions

Wealth+ SMSF Solution allows trustees to better manage the tax outcomes of their fund and individual member accounts. Tax can be lowered through the use of franking credits. Capital gains and losses can also be specifically monitored for the benefit of members.

When an SMSF starts to pay a pension, the trustees may be entitled to claim a tax exemption on the earnings of the assets used to fund the pension.

This tax exemption provides a significant benefit for retirees, particularly when the fund holds shares paying franked dividends.

Streamlined fees

With some SMSF providers, the external audit, investment management and advice fees are separate costs. Wealth+SMSF Solution provides a simpler fee structure, automatically deducting all fees from your Wealth+ cash account.

Self-Managed Super Funds
accordion-minusaccordion-plus

More and more people are realising the advantages of making their own investment decisions and taking control of their retirement strategy.

An increasingly popular way of doing this is by setting up a self managed superannuation fund (SMSF).

An SMSF gives members of the fund control over specific investment choices involving their superannuation. They can tailor their own investment strategies and select specific assets such as listed securities, managed investments, cash and term deposits, international equities, instalment warrants and so on.

How can we help?

Morgans offers a variety of services for SMSFs, including structure, setup, advice, rollovers, investments, administration and compliance.

We have investment advisers who specialise in superannuation and a technical research team that provides updates and support on the latest in superannuation developments.

Our Services

Investment reporting

Clients and their accountants can benefit from our Wealth+ Managed Portfolio Service, which is a reporting facility that we offer for investment administration.

If you would like to find out more before contacting one of our advisers, the Morgans technical research team has produced An essential guide to taking control of your super, which provides further detail on SMSFs.

Retirement and Estate Planning
accordion-minusaccordion-plus

Retirement planning is the accumulation of wealth to provide income and financial security in retirement. Estate planning focuses on wealth preservation and wealth transfer.

How can we help?

With a dedicated technical research team Morgans' advisers are kept up to date with legislation changes.

If you are planning your retirement, just reducing your working hours, or thinking about an estate plan, we can help.

Retirement planning

Good retirement planning is both tax efficient and investment effective. It's never too early to start planning for retirement. It is important to ensure your retirement income is structured to suit your needs and objectives.

Income in retirement

The three main sources of income in retirement are:

  • Superannuation – pension income stream and/or lump sum withdrawals
  • Non-superannuation assets – returns from shares, property, cash and fixed interest
  • Centrelink – age pension benefits

We can help you to structure your retirement income stream to best meet your financial needs.

Estate planning

Estate planning aims to preserve your family’s wealth by distributing it to nominated beneficiaries in the most effective way.

It requires a consideration of each beneficiary’s personal and financial circumstances to determine the best means of providing an inheritance without unfairly affecting the beneficiary’s existing situation.

The first step is ensuring you have a current and valid will. In addition to a will, you should also think about:

  • Powers of Attorney
  • Medical directives
  • Testamentary trusts
  • Business succession planning
  • Nomination of superannuation death benefits

Superannuation does not come under the direction of your will. Without sufficient planning, the trustee of your superannuation fund has discretion as to the treatment of any death benefits from your super.

A binding death nomination can ensure your wishes are fulfilled in the payment of benefits to your preferred beneficiaries.

Implications for SMSFs

With respect to self managed superannuation funds, trustees and members effectively have ultimate control in the distribution of death benefits within your fund.

It is important you prepare a strategy for the payment of benefits to members' chosen beneficiaries and incorporate the facilities to implement this strategy in your trust deed. It will also be necessary to make preparations for the wind-up of the fund in the event of the deaths of all trustees and members.

Wealth+ Managed Portfolio Service
accordion-minusaccordion-plus

Wealth+ is a portfolio management service that makes investing easier by collecting and recording all investment information/documentation (share trades, dividend and interest payments etc) as well as providing clients with regular reports to help them monitor portfolio valuations and forecast income.

Many investors are time poor or have no wish to administer their portfolio and this is where Wealth+ can help. This service gives clients more time to focus on their investment decisions rather than the cumbersome paperwork.

How Wealth+ works

All investments are held in your name (unlike other platforms where the investments are pooled with other investors in a single custodian name) and the address for your investments is changed to care of the Wealth+ managed portfolio service.

Wealth+ receives and deals with all of your correspondence and paperwork. We will follow up on any missing documentation or entitlements such as dividend payments and deal directly with share registries and other product providers.

You will be contacted by your adviser regarding new investment opportunities (e.g. entitlement offers, share purchase plans etc). You simply signal your acceptance and we look after all the relevant paperwork and lodge the application with the relevant registry on your behalf.

The benefits
  • Proactive management of your portfolio - your investment portfolio is closely monitored and where appropriate recommendations are made
  • One point of contact for all your investment needs - you have the comfort of knowing that the adviser you currently have a relationship with will play a role in the administration of your portfolio
  • Reduced paperwork - we receive and manage documentation relating to your investments (such as share trades, dividend and interest payment advices etc.)
  • Transparent reporting - our service provides you with regular reports to help monitor your portfolio valuation and forecast income
  • Hassle free tax returns - we prepare a comprehensive tax report for the preparation of your tax. We can also liaise with your Tax Accountant to provide them with all the information they need
  • Assistance with tax - we determine the correct tax treatment for the cost base of investments involved in complex schemes of arrangement, takeovers etc.
  • 24 hour access to your portfolio - you have 24 hour online secure web access to your portfolio details with 20 minute delayed price updates for listed investments. View an example webpage.
  • Access to capital raisings - you receive timely information regarding capital raisings (e.g. IPOs, entitlement offers etc) so you don’t miss out on any investment opportunities
  • Ease of cash transacting - third party payments can be arranged for you at no cost
  • Your Wealth+ fees may be tax deductible - for most investors, the ongoing portfolio management fees are tax deductible
