INTEREST RATES DROP – AVOID THE LAZY TAX
The latest cash rate decrease to a record low of 1.75 per cent last week has seen both variable and three-year fixed rate deals on owner occupier loans plummet below the four per cent mark.

Are you confident your debt is structured in the most tax effective way?
Are you confident your rate is competitive with the recent movements?
