Personal Finance with Warren Ingram

This is the last month you can do any tax planning for the year

Death and taxes.

We must pay tax - every single cent that is due.

But we must make sure we don't pay more than is due.

There are a few key things to do to maximise your savings while reducing your tax and a few good ideas.

That's a great contribution to make to your savings.

Warren Ingram, financial adviser, wealth planner

It's hard to be rational and calm about the proposals about government wanting a percentage of pension funds.

But a retirement fund is still a way to get a nice big tax break.

Warren Ingram, financial adviser, wealth planner
