A recent article posted by Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) has stated they made a submission to the Federal Government regarding the 2015-2016 Budget. FPA identifies key policy issues that need to be addressed in order to ensure Australians have a solid financial future and access to financial advice for retirement.
Key priorities that the FPA called out on its submission are:
- Encouraging savings culture to Australians’ retirement preparedness to reduce reliance on the social security system.
- Improving access to financial advice for those Australian who are most in need of assistance in managing their financial affairs,
- Removing inconsistencies in the tax system.
CEO of the FPA Mr Randall, said the recommendations are inline with the FPA’s future ongoing goals. The recommendations will ensure Australians have a strong financial future based on financial knowledge from experts. It is important for Australians to understand the benefits of superannuation and have access to financial literacy to maintain consumer protection.
