By its very nature the entry of a loved one into Aged Care is an emotional time. This emotion can cloud decision making in even the most rational of people. It also doesn’t help that on top of finding and securing a place within a comfortable facility, Aged Care funding rules and regulations are now some of the most complex you will encounter in your financial life.
Information can be hard to come by and is often fragmented, or provided selectively by a source with a particular agenda.
Aged Care fees are particularly complex and may include:

In planning for the future it is essential that estate planning and succession planning issues are properly considered.

These types of situations require orderly planning for business succession. Considerations may include:
In providing a comprehensive service we make recommendations in areas including:
We enjoy working with our clients in planning and protecting them in these situations.
With recent research indicating that less than half of Australians currently working will have sufficient savings to support a ‘comfortable’ retirement, ensuring you have the right superannuation arrangements for your situation is more important than ever.
Common superannuation options include:
Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSFs) – For clients with larger superannuation balances we often recommend an SMSF to take advantage of cost benefits and provide even greater investment control and flexibility.
If you have a larger balance, specific investment needs or just a desire to have more control of how your super is invested, a Self-Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) may be the best vehicle to achieve your goals.
A team of Lanyon Partners Specialists can provide a TOTAL SMSF SOLUTION, from set-up and contributions, to investments and strategic planning, accounting, audit and compliance needs.
With over 500,000 funds and rising, SMSFs are a popular solution for Australians to build wealth for retirement, but the extra freedom comes with extra responsibilities that you can’t ignore (the ATO says so). Contact one of our SMSF experts to discuss if this is the right option for you.
