When you’re self-employed, traditional funds slam you with all sorts of complicated forms and painful procedures.
So you sometimes find yourself asking:
In less than 15 minutes you’ll have everything running on autopilot. And you’ll be relieved you’re doing it right.
You get two accounts: Saver and Super. Hook up the Saver account to your bank and start stashing money away without locking it up in super.
Tell us how much you’d always like available in your Saver account (for dipping into, in case you need it). Then, once a quarter, we’ll transfer everything over that amount into your Super account.
Stop paying more tax than you need to. Automate your tax deduction claims and we’ll give you all the receipts to hand over to your accountant at tax time.
Before you, generations of self-employed folks worked too hard for too long, only to get their retirement wrong.
They paid too much tax because they didn’t claim their contributions properly. They didn’t stash enough money away. And they grappled with a system that wasn’t built for them.
We refuse to let this self-employed generation risk getting it wrong, too.
Which is why we combined the best parts of employee super with our smart technology, to give you a savvy super engine created exclusively for you.
We won’t kill the vibe with legacy paper-based processes. GigSuper is an app-first financial services provider, meaning you approach super the way you approach work - on your own terms, at your convenience.
When an employer puts money in super for their employee, it gets taxed at 15%.
When you’re self-employed and you personally put money into super, you’ll need to pay tax in your own name on that money, at your marginal tax rate (which is 34.5% for the average self-employed Australian).
However, if you want that money to get taxed at 15% instead of your marginal rate – you need to claim your contribution as a tax deduction.
Traditionally this involves sending paperwork to the fund, but with GigSuper you can automate the process, helping you reduce your paperwork and your tax bill.
You might currently have a savings account you’re using to save for a holiday, or a new car, or perhaps even a deposit for a home.
Our Saver account is not for those things. Instead, think of the Saver account we give you (coupled with the Super account) as your retirement bucket.
The reason you get the Saver account is because we know that establishing regular savings for super can sometimes be tricky when you’re self-employed if your income varies.
So we make it easy with a dedicated Saver account that’s designed exclusively to save for your retirement, without immediately locking that money away in super. If you need to, you can access the money in your Saver anytime.
Once you’re in, we’ll also help you find any other super you have out there – including super you might have lost track of over the years.
And you’ll be able to roll it all over with a couple of taps.
Just make sure you consider any potential loss of existing insurance or other benefits you might have with your existing fund(s) before you consolidate your super.
You know how the Barefoot Investor and Warren Buffett are always praising index funds*?
Well, we are too.
All the investment options in GigSuper are built using index funds. This means you won’t be paying fund managers unnecessarily hefty fees to try to outperform the market...because in the long run, that’s an extremely difficult task to pull off. Find out more here.
