Is a Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) right for you? 

There are currently over 600,000 SMSF’s in Australia.

We understand that SMSF’s don’t suit everyone, so it’s important you get the right information to decide for yourself.  To assist you to make informed choices, here are some items to consider:

Why do people set up their own SMSF?

  • To be able to make their own decisions about where their super is invested.
  • To invest in your own choice of allowable assets

What is involved to set up a SMSF?

You need a SMSF Trust Deed (the document that contains all the rules for running your super fund) and a Trustee (the decision maker) for the SMSF.  The fund also must be registered with an ABN and TFN.  If you are running commercial activities the fund may also be required to register for GST.

What are the ongoing requirements for a SMSF?

The annual administration of your SMSF includes bookkeeping, tax return, annual financial statements, minutes of Trustee’s meetings and if in retirement phase, pension calculations and minutes.  In addition to this, the fund must be audited each year by an independent Auditor.

What investments can I make in a SMSF?

Typical investments include shares, cash, term deposits, and property. There are specific rules about what you can invest in,so it’s important you seek  advice before you make any decisions.
