Benefits of an SMSF

Written by Hein Preller , Posted in SMSF Topics

By taking control of your superannuation through a Self-managed Superannuation Fund you can expect to enjoy the following benefits:


SMSF assets are totally under the control of the Trustees. The Trustees are responsible for taking all decisions on where to invest the assets, whether it be in investment property, equities, a managed fund or term deposit. In other words, control lies in the hands of those who actually put up the money – the Trustees.

Low tax

At 15%, SMSFs have one of the lowest tax rates of any entity in Australia. The great thing is that the SMSF tax rate can be reduced even further by offsetting other tax credits. SMSFs are allowed to control exactly when assets are disposed of. This means, for example, that if an SMSF acquires an asset today and it appreciates by xxx% by the time its members retire, it can be rolled over to an allocated or complying pension fund and there will be 0% tax to pay on the realised capital gain of the asset in question.

Asset protection

Designed for a Trusteeship of four or less, SMSFs are a great option for a family of husband, wife and two adult children who wish to pool their superannuation together and buy an investment property
