A lot of people make the mistake and think that because they are self-employed that they don’t have a lot of options when growing their wealth. True you might have a lot of assets tied up in your business, but you can make the most of investments as well!

KiwiSaver Member Tax Credit

For each dollar you contribute to your KiwiSaver fund, you may be matched with a co-contribution from the Government of $0.50, up to a maximum of $521 per year*.

Do you have enough insurance?

If anything happened, could you cover the costs of repaying the mortgage, paying bills and meeting medical or funeral expenses? This is especially important if you are self-employed. A range of personal and business insurances are available but you should ensure that your insurance covers your personal situation and risks.
