Quality of advice, recommendations and support.


10.0 Star Star Star Star Star Overall Experience
Pros

We started with Murray McKinley in 2010. Murray assisted with transfer of a small amount of UK pension monies and set up our SMSF. Over the years following Murray`s and Aaron McCracken`s advice this small amount of money has grown to the extent that being retired we are now fully funded having achieved our financial goals. Also the UK pension advice where we topped up and continued to pay NI contributions has been a great success. Stewart received the UK pension in June 2021 and cost of doing this has already been recovered. Today we have no financial problems thanks to McKinley Plowman.

Areas for Improvement

Perhaps introduction to our SMSF MPL accountant at some time. We have had two to date Ian Gath and now Jojo Rollerson neither of whom we have met.
