SMSF Accounting

Self-Managed Superannuation Funds

A Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF) is a private superannuation fund that provides Australians with greater control and flexibility over their retirement savings. 

SMSFs offer numerous benefits, including a wider investment choice, tax advantages, control and flexibility, and estate planning opportunities. 

However, as a trustee, you are legally responsible for complying with superannuation regulations and tax laws set by the ATO, developing and implementing an investment strategy, maintaining accurate records, lodging annual tax returns, and arranging for an independent audit of your SMSF each year. 

For example, your investment strategy has to align with sole purpose of providing retirement benefits. Or, if you choose to borrow money to purchase an investment property, you have to understand what limited recourse borrowing arrangement is. 

Failure to meet your obligations can result in significant penalties and potential fund non-compliance. Proper SMSF accounting and compliance are essential to ensuring the long-term success and viability of your fund, but navigating the complexities can be challenging on your own. 

That’s where our professional SMSF accounting services come in – we can help you minimise the risk of non-compliance and focus on growing your retirement savings.
