Self Managed Super Funds

 

Self-managed super funds (SMSFs) can be a great way to provide for your retirement. Once you have  decided to establish your own fund, it is important that you are aware of your responsibilities and obligations as a trustee.

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO), as regulator of SMSFs, is responsible for helping to protect the retirement income system by ensuring that SMSFs follow the rules outlined in the super and tax legislation. Self Managed Super Funds involve added responsibility and extensive skills in both legal and financial matters. This also requires a great deal of planning and research to manage super investments properly. As a result of this specialised nature of Self Managed Superfunds, we spend time with our clients making sure they understand all the relevant aspects of a superfund as well as their responsibilities. The financial benefits to owners of this structure are vast and we make sure they benefit to the maximum.
