Why Doctors And Dentists Should Not Ignore Super

Yves SchoofSuper

The start of a new financial year is a good time to review your superannuation arrangements:


  • Do you still have multiple funds and pay multiple fees?


  • Is your fund expensive in terms of fees?


  • How is your money invested?


  • What is the performance like?


  • Should you be contributing extra?



The trap for many self-employed doctors and dentists is to ignore superannuation, which means you miss out on valuable compounding and tax benefits.


Making concessional super contributions can provide you with a significant income tax deduction, and allows you to invest in a very tax-effective environment.


Superannuation will typically still be a very important part of your retirement income, so it makes sense to maximise your benefits.

Author | Specialist Adviser for Medical Specialists and Surgeons at Affluence Private Wealth
I specialise in managing and coordinating the financial affairs of medical professionals and have been recognised as one of the best financial planners in Australia. I am a Certified Financial Planner and member of the Financial Planning Association of Australia.

As I understand your time is extremely valuable and scarce, I am able to offer flexible meetings times, including outside business hours and during the weekend. I can even come and meet you somewhere convenient, or talk via videoconference on Skype.

My first consultation is free. I allocate up to 90 minutes to discuss your personal circumstances and to establish how I may best assist you. Where you already have an existing adviser, I would be happy to offer a second opinion. I always quote a fixed dollar fee before we start working together.
