What is an SMSF?

Self-managed super funds exist in the form of a regulated tax structure which may only be used for the purposes of managing retirement income.

As the name suggests, an SMSF is registered in the name of the trustee or trustees whose superannuation is being invested through the fund. An SMSF may have up to four trustees, with each trustee assuming equal responsibility for the management of the fund and its compliance with laws and regulations.

SMSFs are regulated by the Australian Tax Office (ATO) and must be administered in-line with the relevant laws and regulations. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) determines what constitutes a compliant SMSF as well as who is able to provide financial services (e.g. SMSF auditors) to an SMSF.

Although technically an SMSF is ‘self-managed’, the complex financial reporting obligations and specific taxation requirements that apply to SMSFs mean that professional assistance is often required to set up and administer your fund.
