Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF)
With more and more Australians taking control and responsibility for their own retirement, there is a dramatic uptake in establishing and running a SMSF.
There are more than 599,678 SMSF in existence with combined assets worth over $748 billion; no wonder why so many people are asking about the benefits.
SMSF offer a number of advantages over retail or industry super funds, like:
- Choice and flexibility of what assets to invest in (e.g. direct property, shares etc.)
- Ability to borrow in your SMSF via a limited recourse borrowing arrangement (LRBA);
- Greater control over estate planning and taxes payable on death benefits
- Lower fees (as a percentage of balance) than other funds
- Maximise tax-effective planning in retirement
- Choice of insurance policies that suit your needs
Unfortunately, for many people the task of running a SMSF and complying with the strict rules set out under the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (SIS Act) can be daunting and off putting.
