At the age of 35, I am currently in the worst financial position of my adult life. To get Myself into a better position, I knew things had to change.

After being referred to Peter Marmara-Stewart, I called him and asked for his help. He made the trip from Morwell to Frankston to see me. From the moment I met him, I knew he was going to be the one to not only help me escape my current financial position, but also be the one to help me towards my goal of financial freedom.

Peter is the depiction of genuine. It is evident he genuinely cares and wants to help people. Everything he does demonstrates that. I run a small business and compared with other businesses, Peter and his team help; I am small fish, yet Peter has a way of making me feel like I am his only client.

To Peter and the team at Preston Coe & Ring, thank you for helping me believe I can, not only get out of my current financial circumstance, but for also giving me the belief that I can achieve financial freedom.

I’d recommend Peter to anyone, no matter where you are in the world; he will make you feel like you are there with him in the same town.

You can get a double tax deduction when you pay for life insurance through superannuation.

How does it work?

Your business contributes your premiums to your super fund and the business gets the tax deduction. On top of that the super fund gets the tax deductions for the life insurance premiums it pays.

Option 1 – Pay $5,000 premium outside of super.

No tax deduction.

Option 2 – Pay $5,000 Life Insurance premium inside super.

Business pays the super fund as a contribution. Tax deduction. At 49% tax rate that is a $2,450 tax saving.

Contribution is income in the fund @ 15% = $750 tax payable

Life Insurance premium is deduction in the fund @15% = $750 tax refund.


What do you need to make sure you can get this tax deduction:

- A business or an employer that allows you to salary sacrifice to super.
- Super
- A chat with one of our team.
- To take action before 30th June.


Why are life insurance premiums not tax deductible outside of super?

You are not allowed to claim the premiums outside of super because you don’t pay tax on the money that you receive.

How much would I have to earn pre-tax outside of super for that premium?

If you are on the highest marginal tax rate of 49% you would have to earn $9,803. But even if you are on the 34.5% tax bracket you would have to earn $7,633.

Does this strategy apply to other insurances?

This strategy can apply to TPD (Any Occupation) and Income Protection Insurance as well. Income Protection insurance is tax deductible outside of superannuation also.

Other insurances such as Home, Car & Pet insurances are not able to be paid through superannuation.
