Take back total control of your Super
An SMSF gives you total control of your Super by allowing you to choose where you invest your Super Benefit. Many of our clients who are disappointed with their Superfund's performance or simply think that they can do a better job investing their Super Benefit themselves are choosing to establish and manage their own SMSF.
Having total control means the members of the SMSF can invest in a wide range of investments. For example, with an SMSF, you can invest in Term Deposits, Australian and International Shares, Residential and Commercial Property.
Manage up to 4 members' Super in one SMSF
You can set up an SMSF for yourself and add up to three other people to consolidate the super balance from each member into one SMSF. This enables you to reduce the average fee per member to run an SMSF, given our annual fee is the same for up to 4 members.
Accumulation and Pension Funds
With Retail and Industry Funds your benefit is typically invested separately in a Pension or an Accumulation Account. This means that when you wish to drawdown your Super Benefit as a Pension your Super Benefit will need to be transferred to a separate Pension Account and any additional contributions you make will be added to a completely separate Accumulation Account. An SMSF is a Pension and Accumulation Funds in one. You can commence a Pension and continue contributing to the same SMSF. There is no need to split your Super Benefit into multiple Funds.
Transfer assets from your personal name to an SMSF
It is possible for Members to make contributions of assets instead of cash such as Shares, Managed Funds, and Commercial Property from the Members' personal names into an SMSF (called in specie contributions). In specie transfers allow you to consolidate your Family Assets under the one SMSF tax advantaged umbrella. We note that taxation and capital gains tax issues should be considered.
