Overview

This Tax Salary Super Calculator for Couple will help a couple to plan their retirement by forecasting both superannuation and cash savings over 80 years.

Income tax, after tax salary, and superannuation are the most important components of our salary packages. There are some calculators for either income tax, or after tax salary, or superannuation. However, it is very hard to find one calculator that shows you all these three things together by considering important factors such as inflation rate, personal circumstance, life expectancy, retirement expectation, income projection, superannuation forecast etc. The Tax Salary Super Calculator is thus developed to give you an integrated view & forecast of your salary, tax & super all in one place.

Retirees around the world are at risk of running out of money, according to a report published by the World Economic Forum. Retirement account balances aren't increasing in line with rising life expectancy — and in Australia, that means male workers could outlive their savings by about 10 years, with that number increasing two to three years for female workers.

The Tax Salary Super Calculator is created to help Australians to understand the following without considering the government age pension:

  • How much your superannuation balance will be year on year;
  • How extra superannuation contribution can impact the superannuation balance long-term;
  • How extra superannuation contribution can impact your tax and take-home pay;
  • How long your superannuation can last after you retire;
  • How it impacts your superannuation balance if you either spend less or you make more;
  • The $1 million retirement myth.

Here is a screenshot that will give you a better idea that what you need to do and what this Tax Salary Super Calculator for Couple can do for you.
