Money Saving Hacks to Find Financial Freedom

Are you living your dream life? If not, it’s likely because you can’t afford to live the life you want. The truth is, wishing for change won’t work. There is more to reaching and realising your financial goals than simply making resolutions for the same. Financial resilience and investments may help, but they’re not the first step.

International Tax is a Minefield

International tax is a minefield. Many unsuspecting, well-intentioned migrants arrive in New Zealand, work hard to build a new life, have PAYE deducted from their income, only to find out via Inland Revenue (IRD) audit that they have significant amounts of additional tax to pay. It doesn’t stop there, IRD then adds penalties and interest to that tax, and the amount can quickly escalate.

Having a solid plan to protect and grow your wealth

“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” The wise words of Benjamin Franklin are as resonant today as they were in 1789. No one knows what our lives will bring, that’s why it’s important to have a solid financial plan to create, protect and grow your wealth.
