Frequently Asked Questions

What is an SMSF?

A Self-Managed Superannuation Fund, or SMSF for short, is a superannuation fund that allows people to manage their own superannuation themselves. An SMSF can only have one to four trustees. However, like a normal super fund, employer contributions still go into the fund, and the trustee can also contribute any of their own money as they see fit.

Who can start a self-managed fund?

Most people can have an SMSF set up for them. However, there are several costs related to setting up and running an SMSF, so trustees need to have a sufficient amount of money to make having an SMSF worthwhile.

When should I think about getting an SMSF?

Anyone who has over $200,000 invested in their superannuation fund should consider setting up an SMSF. An SMSF gives people more control over their investments and various tax-effective opportunities that normal super funds cannot offer.

What are the rules of having an SMSF?

  • An SMSF can only be used to provide retirement benefits to the trustee
  • An SMSF should not be used to gain early and inappropriate access to superannuation funds
  • SMSFs can borrow if certain requirements are met by the trustee
  • An SMSF can be set up to be run by individual trustees or by all the trustees
  • An SMSF can only have between one to four members
  • An SMSF must always continue and abide by its investment strategy
  • The trustee has to ensure that the SMSF adheres to Australian Taxation Office (ATO) regulations and guidelines
