Is it time to bring your KiwiSaver across the ditch?

Have you traded your jandals for thongs or a chilly bin for an esky, but still left your KiwiSaver in New Zealand?

If you’ve moved to Australia, now could be a good time for you to consider bringing your KiwiSaver across the ditch as the New Zealand dollar heads towards parity with the Australian dollar.

This means you’ll get more bang for your buck when you transfer your KiwiSaver to an Australian super fund.

Aside from favourable currency rates, by transferring your KiwiSaver to Australia you’ll also save on KiwiSaver admin fees and Inland Revenue tax of 28% which can slowly erode your retirement savings.
