From the desk of Christopher Emmanuel

I was disappointed when the government put the new measurement against the superannuation in the last budget. From our view, this is a very limiting move by the government in the name of making sure that it is not misused.

I am glad that the government notice that this is a bad move and it will not give a positive results. Today they have announce that they are scraping the super 500k lifetime limit measurement and changing it to $100k limit per year and 3 years bring forward limited to those with balance up to $1.6 million.

I believe this is a more fair measurement and should be received with the most welcome hands. Although I prefer the old measurements but this is still a good thing rather than the government making super as a very not attractive vehicle for people to use.

Kind regards

Christopher Emmanuel
