Submission to: Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry
Submission to: Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman We support an inquiry into insolvency practices and the impact on small business. Insolvency can be difficult, costly and unfair for small business. Small business needs access to expert independent free advice to ensure adequate support. The costs of insolvency need to be reduced and the structure simplified.
Submission to: Treasury Submission recommends that kinship be included as a specific category in legislation as an option for a binding death benefit nomination. This area of superannuation is complex, and binding death benefit nominations can be ruled invalid for a number of reasons. People of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent are very clear about their kinship relationships but are not able to choose their appropriate beneficiaries because such relationships are not legally recognised.
