Is Self- Managed Super Right For You?

Self-Managed Superannuation Funds are suitable for investors looking for control over their superannuation assets although SMSF’s are not for everyone. Before setting up an SMSF you must be sure you understand your responsibilities.

Having an SMSF brings responsibilities for the Trustees to ensure the SMSF complies with Legislation:

• an SMSF must have an investment strategy to be adhered to when making investment decisions
 • the Fund must lodge an Audited annual return with the tax office every year
• the Fund must have an appointed trustee who will carry out the decisions in the best interests of the Members and;
• the assets of the SMSF must be separate from personal assets.

 

 

 

Powers can determine if having an SMSF is right for you.

UNIT TRUSTS & PROPERTY

With an SMSF having the ability to acquire property with a non-recourse borrowing arrangement, direct property investments using SMSF give rise to a number of opportunities.

RETIREMENT PLANNING

Your SMSF will be a key component of your retirement planning as the SMSF can be used to pay lump sums or concessionally taxed income streams. If you are over 60 the benefits paid from an SMSF will be tax-free.

PENSION STRATEGIES

At Powers we know pension strategies and our goal is make sure your SMSF has the pension strategy that suits you.

COMPLIANCE

At Powers we can prepare financial statements and arrange the audit to ensure compliance with the SIS Act.
