Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSF)

A SMSF is an alternative to large super funds, such as retail or industry funds. These large funds can have 1000’s of member but are not involved in the as Managers or Trustees of the fund. So, they are not responsible for managing the funds’ investments or compliance with superannuation law.

SMSF’s are becoming an increasingly popular way to save for retirement. 1 million Australians currently have SMSF’s with approximately 3000 new funds being set up each month. But there are many things you need to consider before deciding if a SMSF is right for you.

 

Establishing a Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF)

If setting up a SMSF is right for you we can through our strategic partnerships with Registered & licensed Financial Planners assist you to establish the fund. We can guide you step by step through the process to ensure the trustees of the fund understand their obligations and all the required documentation is correctly completed.

Our specialist team is available daily to offer advice and answer any questions that you may have. We understand that SMSF is a daunting subject for some people. We know how important it is that you have people to contact, to assist you and answer your queries.

 

SMSF Audits

A major requirement in the management of an SMSF, is that it is professionally audited every year.

 

Under the Australian Taxation Office’s self-managed super fund regulations, this must be done by an approved auditor who undertakes full financial and compliance audit of your super fund. As trustee of the fund, you must provide the auditor with:

  • Your fund’s financial statements
  • All documents and information legally required by the auditor to make an accurate review and assessment of your fund’s transactions

A compliance audit involves assessing the administration of your SMSF to ensure compliance with the superannuation rules. The financial audit looks at how and where you have invested your super funds, to ensure there are no illegal or fraudulent transactions.

 

Checklist - Managing Your SMSF

In order to avoid ATO penalties, as a trustee you should always:

  • Ensure your fund's sole purpose is to ultimately pay retirement benefits to members.
  • Take contributions and pay out benefits according to the super and tax laws.
  • Make investment decisions that comply with the super and tax rules such as:

            Keeping personal and fund assets completely separate

            Complying with the personal-use test

            Complying with borrowing rules

            Making investment decisions that will benefit all members

  • Keep written documentation about all investment
  • Appoint an independent approved auditor each year
  • Keep full, detailed and accurate records
  • Lodge your SMSF’s annual returns
  • Avoid paying money (including loans) out of the fund to any member before their retirement
  • Regularly review and update the fund's investment strategy if necessary
  • Look at offering insurance for both fund assets and members
  • Tell the ATO of any changes to trustees, members or contact details
