One of the most significant challenges in tax planning is that tax rules and regulations are ever changing, with effective strategies in one year often being rendered ineffective or obsolete the following year. Tax minimisation is an important facet of your overall financial strategy and should always be considered in combination with other areas such as investment returns, personal income and your financial objectives.
Reducing the amount of tax that you pay every year can have an enormous impact on your long-term wealth. However, this requires thorough consideration and well-timed ongoing financial advice. That’s where we come in.

Insurance advice requires consideration to be given to your level of insurance needs, policy ownership, cash flow and the effect of tax on claims. First Class Wealth will always provide advice that is perfectly matched to your individual circumstances. Protecting the immediate lifestyle of you and your family as well as your future plans requires appropriate insurances to be in place. Personalised plans to protect you, and your wealth.
