FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS BEFORE SMSF ESTABLISHMENT

Any activity that relates to your retirement requires careful consideration. Before establishing an SMSF, consider the following.

What Trustee Structure is Best?

You can decide between having a corporate trustee structure or having individual trustees.

With the corporate trustee structure, each member is seen as a director. Members enjoy limited liability but record keeping can be more difficult and there are additional setup costs involved.

An individual trustee structure has the benefit of being cheaper and easier to set up but you may not want the responsibility of all the legal issues of the trust. Also, note that there must be a minimum of two individual trustees. The SMSF trust deed must contain the details of responsibilities and power issued to each individual trustee.

Do You Understand the Tax Implications?

Tax benefits prompt many to consider a managed fund SMSF and with good reason. But it can be challenging to get it right without the help of a financial adviser or an accounting firm. Make sure you have the appropriate resources to optimise your tax returns.

Are You Compliant?

SMSF administration comes with many responsibilities as set out by the Superannuation Industry Supervision Act. Seek out financial advice before setting up a self managed superannuation fund SMSF, so you aren’t caught unawares later on.

Who Will be Your Annual SMSF Auditor?

One thing you can do even before you SMSF establishment is to acquire an auditor for your managed fund SMSF. You’ll need these services each year during tax season.

Who Will Make Fund Applications?

Do all parties understand their roles? It’s smart to discuss your plan to the finest detail before your SMSF establishment, so there aren’t any disputes later on. You must know who will handle the annual responsibilities, such as the audit as well as who will take up the task of applying for your ABN, TFN and SMSF bank account.
