Opening Bank Accounts

iCare Super does not have any restriction on any bank accounts.

You can choose your preferred banks, financial institutions or credit unions to open an bank account for your SMSF.

We recommend that you should open an bank account for your SMSF immediately after your SMSF is officially set up.

How can you open an SMSF bank account?

Normally, banks and financial institutions will require the following to open the bank account for your SMSF:

  1. signed trust deed
  2. 100 points of ID (in most cases driver license and passport are sufficient) for the trustees

What banks should you choose for your SMSF?

You should consider the following factors for opening the bank account for your SMSF:

  • does have a monthly bank account fee?
  • does your cash balance earn interest income for the cash sitting in your SMSF bank account?
  • does the account have Bpay or direct debit facilities?

From our experience, we have seen most of our clients have chosen ANZ  bank as their favorite SMSF bank.

What benefits will you have when you choose ANZ Bank?

  •  ANZ V2 Plus account does not have monthly fees
  •  Normally your SMSF can earn more than 0.15% more interest than RBA rate per annum on the cash balance
  •  There is no minimum cash balance requirement

  •  You do not need to go to a branch and we can help open it for you in 1-2 days
