There are various steps involved with setting up a self-managed super fund. Each SMSF must be set up in accordance with the relevant regulations, legislations and ATO reporting requirements. Anyone who is considering setting up an SMSF must:
Setting up an SMSF is something that shouldn’t be taken lightly and will require extensive research. There are various factors to consider when deciding whether or not an SMSF is right for you:
There are numerous fees you will have to pay when managing an SMSF. You should take into consideration how much money you currently have saved up for retirement and if it’s financially feasible for you to set up an SMSF. Compare the accounting and audit fees of an SMSF with the 1-2% that most retail super fund providers charge.
Most employer-provided super funds come with benefits and options. If you choose to use an SMSF, you will have to set up these benefits yourself, as they will not automatically come with the aforementioned benefits and options.
The money that goes into an employer provided super fund is handled and invested by professional superannuation experts. If you’re unable to make sound investment decisions, your super fund will not be managed effectively and you won’t get the returns on your fund that you could be getting. This is why SMSFs are best suited to people who have experience with and understand how personal investments work.
Unlike standard types of super funds, you will not be able to reclaim any funds that have been lost through an SMSF.
Anyone managing their own SMSF must be aware of all the legislation, regulations and taxation requirements that have to be met, and understand the investment market. Anyone who does not understand these requirements or does not have the time to do so should speak to an SMSF provider for assistance with running an SMSF or getting their self-managed super fund set up.
