Self-Managed Super Funds 

Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSFs) are a popular investment vehicle. They enable trustees to decide on their investment strategies and control their assets. They also avoid the management fees and commissions charged by professional fund managers.

In practice, there are significant restrictions on how SMSFs invest their funds together with onerous reporting and compliance obligations. Penalties for non-compliance can be severe, including unplanned tax liabilities.


Managing an SMSF is a considerable responsibility. It requires meticulous attention to detail and a thorough understanding of superannuation law and practice. Most trustees discover they need help to manage their funds properly.
