SMSF Set Up - Top Questions and Answers

What is an SMSF?

A Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF) is a private superannuation fund that you manage yourself. The members are usually The Trustees of the fund, and it is regulated by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

How many SMSF are there in Australia?

There are close to 600,000 SMSFs now in operation, managing $696.7 billion in assets as of 30th June 2017, according to the latest statistics released by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA), and the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

How does an SMSF work?

An SMSF must have its own Tax File Number (TFN) and Australian Business Number (ABN), as well as its own bank account. It's sole purpose is to provide an income upon the retirement of its members, and the members also have the responsibility of ensuring that there is an investment strategy in place.

What are the benefits of an SMSF?

There are many benefits when it comes to running your own SMSF. Firstly, the control you have over what you choose to invest in and how is the most important. An SMSF can also borrow to invest via a Limited Recourse Loan. There is also the ability to have more control over tax.

What can I invest in?

You can still invest in the usual shares, term-deposits, managed funds and property. You have the ability to choose your own shares, and small business owners can invest in buying their own business property through their SMSFs. Many SMSFs hold collectibles such as artwork, jewellry, antiques and vintage cars.

How do I setup a SMSF?

You will need to consider finding an SMSF expert/adviser in order to help you with the initial set up. You will then need to create a trust deed, appoint Trustees, register with the ATO, set up a bank account for the fund, roll over any Super you already have, then create an investment strategy.

When should I consider a SMSF?

If you want control, and can handle the responsibility, then an SMSF may be for you. You must have enough in your super in order to transfer to an SMSF, and the ATO suggest having $200,000 or more. There will also be many hours put into the creation and monitoring of your SMSF.

What are the legal requirements of an SMSF?

You must be able to comply with the superannuation and tax laws, including making sure the money is only used for retirement benefits. You will also be obligated to keep records, such as lodging annual statements. You must report contributions, and there are also audit requirements, including having the fund audited by an approved SMSF auditor each year.

What is an SMSF audit?

A SMSF audit involves an approved auditor conducting a financial and compliance audit of your super fund. A financial audit enables your auditor to examine your fund's financial statements. A compliance audit involves assessing your SMSF's compliance with the superannuation rules.

What is the sole purpose test?

The sole purpose test ensures a super fund’s purpose only provides benefits to its members upon their retirement or for beneficiaries if a member dies.

How much do I need in my super to start an SMSF?

If you have $140K or more in super as an individual (or combined with a partner) a Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) may be suitable for you.
