About SMSF’s

What is an SMSF?

Senior Couple and Businessman Sitting at Outdoor TableA Self-Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) is a tax structure, set up as a trust, which you control in preparation for your retirement. It gives you greater flexibility than other financial structures. Through your SMSF, you can invest in any asset in any currency anywhere in the world. Property is an asset class that is loved by many Australian’s.

Keep in mind that this is a Superannuation Fund, and while you will enjoy the taxation benefits that legislation provides, with that comes a number of obligations that need to be fulfilled.

While you are still accumulating, your SMSF’s income is taxed at a flat rate of 15%, with capital gains tax being a low 10%.

Once you start drawing a “pension” from your SMSF, the tax rate on all income and capital gains is Nil for that pension account. It is called a “pension” but don’t be confused as it has nothing to do with the government age pension. This pension is an income stream paid from the fund.
