Planning for retirement is crucial. For many Australians this involves managing and increasing contributions to their superannuation fund. 

Government policies, however, significantly affect retirement savings. Recent draft legislation proposed by Treasurer Jim Chalmers aims to reduce tax concessions for those with super savings exceeding $3 million.

This draft legislation was released within a month of the government revealing plans to define an “objective of superannuation” for future generations and parliaments, with the purpose of preserving savings in an equitable and sustainable way.

Host: Simon Downes, External Affairs Lead, CPA Australia

Guest: Richard Webb, Senior Manager Financial Planning and Superannuation Policy, CPA Australia
