Debt Recycling Solutions
Debt recycling is the strategic co-ordination of cash flow to achieve home loan reduction, tax minimisation and wealth creation all at the same time. This strategy is designed to maximise wealth creation opportunities and to pay off your home loan sooner allowing you to secure your financial future.
Debt recycling is a financial strategy that can help you get ahead by replacing your home loan (non-deductible) debt with investment (tax deductible) debt over time. It enables you to:
- Repay your home loan quicker
- Build an investment portfolio outside of superannuation
- Reduce your tax
Debt recycling is a long-term strategy that can help you achieve your retirement income goal. Debt recycling can provide an alternative to superannuation by allowing you to accumulate wealth in the non-superannuation environment which provides access to funds in the future if required. This may be appropriate if you are looking to retire prior to your preservation age (the age you can get access to your superannuation benefits).
Debt recycling simply uses your existing home loan repayments more efficiently to get a better result through interest savings, tax savings and long-term wealth creation.
