Accountants & Financial Advisors: Superannuation, Divorce and the Property Settlement Process

As an accountant or financial advisor, if you have clients who are going through a divorce, considering how to deal with a settlement, and how to deal with their superannuation as part of that settlement will be required. Separating clients might not be a common occurrence in your day to day client work, but what we do know is that it is often you in your position of trust when advising your clients, that will be the first to know that a separation is looming. This provides you with an opportunity to assist your client who may have concerns about this through the initial stages of that process.
