SMSF – Self Managed Super Fund

Super Fund Structure

  • One of the significant decisions to be made when establishing an SMSF is whether to appoint an individual or a corporate trustee to be responsible for the fund’s compliance and legal obligations.
    • If an individual trustee is used, the members are also the trustees. When a member dies, all assets have to be re-registered, because all assets in your SMSF must be held by the trustees.
    • If a corporate trustee is used, the company is a trustee and the members are directors. This means that it is much easier to add or exit members with a corporate trustee. It also means that when a member dies, the assets do not have to be re-registered and you do not need to have to find another trustee. This is because individual trustees must have two members, whereas corporate trustees need only have one Director.

  • Annual Accounting and Tax Returns for self-managed superannuation funds, including reporting on member balances, investment placement and investment returns.
  • Audit services for SMSF will be done by specialist independent auditors.
