Post number 3!
I would like to tinker with some calculators for super salary-sacrificing and also some forecasting calculators with inputs for yield, interest rate etc. for future value of money. Yes I am too lazy to punch figures through a calculator - I actually like the idea of comparing spreadsheets/scenarios/outcomes.
Personally I'd stay away from those sorts of calculators. Many different websites from super funds have many different assumptions so they come out with very different results. I would only suggest using calculators on the ASIC website if there are any, otherwise you'd be best off using an excel spreadsheet.
Thanks Bill - I will check those out.
Same goes Dan - I know what you mean about website calculators - most use variables which slant positively towards their product. I haven't looked at ASIC's for a while, I will check there. What I did have in mind was a spreadsheet that someone may have put together. I might have to have a crack at building one myself.
