Help to setup a SMSF Rockhampton

Self-managed super funds (SMSFs) provide a way of saving for your retirement. The difference between an SMSF and other types of funds is that the members of a SMSF are usually also the trustees – meaning that the members of the SMSF run it for their own benefit, but are also responsible for all investment decisions and the associated risks, as well as meeting the applicable super and tax laws.

As a trustee you are responsible for running the fund and acting in the best interests of the members. You will need to manage the fund and all its assets separately from your own assets, and may be personally liable to pay an administrative penalty if you don’t adhere to the laws that apply to SMSF’s. You also won’t have access to some of the legal protection that is available to members of other types of superannuation funds.

There are certainly a number of (often significant benefits):
o If you have strong skills in financial, investment or legal sectors, then you may have the ability to produce a better rate of return than a generic fund.
o SMSFs receive significant tax concessions – the most significant being through franking credits which allow funds to avoid paying tax on the dividends they receive from listed companies; as well as exemptions for taxpayers where super funds are funding their pension income.
o If you run your own business and own the property from which you operate, then you might consider changing the ownership of that property from yourself to your superannuation fund. This could allow you to claim a tax deduction for your business for your rent, and it would be assessed at only 15% tax within the SMSF - which is likely to be a better tax rate than that at which you claim the tax deduction.

You must be prepared to research and monitor your super investments regularly if you want to manage them yourself. Super is the investment for your retirement, so don’t rush in – it’s a major financial decision and you need to have the time and ability to do it (or at least be prepared to engage suitable advisors).

If you’re not convinced that you can do better yourself than in a traditional fund, you may be better off using another type of fund to invest for your retirement. Either way you should consider seeking professional advice.
