A self-managed super fund (SMSF) provides financial compensation to its members in retirement. The difference between this and other funds is that their members are also their trustees. This program can have between one to four members. The trustees can have a control when it comes to tailoring the fund to meet their individual needs. This differs from industry super funds, which are designed to benefit a large group of members, meaning the decisions are based on the group interests rather than what is best suited to individuals.
How does It work?
Each of the members will have their own tax file number, a bank account, and Australian business number. The members will simply direct their contributions to the SMSF bank account. All the investments that will be made using the funds are controlled by the members/trustees and therefore, there will be a Corporate Trustee and a Director. There are also Investment advisers who will teach you strategies and help you with your investment decision.
There are two types of structures available in this program. First is the individual trustee wherein, there must be two individuals who will act as a member on behalf of the fund. The second is the Company Trustee, where you can use the company if nobody is willing to act as a 2nd member.
The Responsibilities of all SMSF Trustees
All the members are in charge of making decisions regarding how and where to invest their funds. In addition, they will take care of the financial records, tax return, and auditing. So, you will be ensured about the security of your funds as you will be the one to handle it.
