Q:

I am 62 and looking at retiring in the next few years. I'm finding it really hard to get simple questions answered about my superannuation, tax, etc. My needs are simple - no assets (except Super), no debt and I'm not interested in investing outside super - I need financial advice but hate being 'schmoozed' - slick powerpoint presentations, glossy folders, expensive service, etc. I want simple straightforward financial advice. Where can I get it in Melbourne?

Q:

We live in North Western Sydney but both work at Mascot and thinking of renting our place and living in an apartment closer to work for 12 months for a change in lifestyle. When we discussed this with some friends they suggested we should change our home loan to interest only to maximise negative gearing. Is this good advice as when we called the bank they said our interest rate would increase by 0.20%?

Q:

Hi, I am employed by a trading platform in USA, money will be getting transferred to my account to purchase iTunes cards and traded for bitcoin. I will be getting a monthly wage. My question is, will I only need to pay tax on my wage of $3500 per month ? OR will I get slammed paying tax on the massive amount of money this company are putting into my account to purchase the iTunes cards for them?

Q:

We invested a small sum of our Super ($30,000) in units in a property investment company, which did well until a change in management. Last year apparently our units were sold on to a new company, which forwarded a statement showing our holdings now to be zero. Our emails show no notification of any transfer plan, and no option to opt-out and withdraw remaining funds. Also there is no final payment made to our bank account, as claimed. Can we do anything about this, and if so who do we approach?

Q:

i got pulled over and was told my vehicle was unregistered, they took my plates and gave me a $250 unregistered vehicle fine and $100 return plate failure fine. The vehicle was being transferred to my name from my father in laws and he was paying the transfer fee. Meanwhile i pay the new registration, it gets bounced back a week later with no explanation. I never recieved a '14 day overdue notice' or a letter to advise the car was unlicensed. Do i have a chance to take this to court?

Q:

Hi, I’m looking to buying a house and I will obviously need to get a mortgage. I’d hope to not spend more than 500,000 on a house. I’d say I’d have a decent savings and should be ok for a deposit by time I’m ready, I work full time (135k pa). My issue is I’ve never borrowed/owed money before and lack a credit score of any sort. How do I go about making sure I’ll be able to get a mortgage easily, while not wanting to have fees for money I don’t really need to borrow?
