Insight Into Self Managed Superannuation

Self-managed super funds (SMSFs) are a way of saving for retirement. SMSFs are one of the fastest growing sectors of the Australian super industry. SMSFs give people full control of their own super fund, including all the legal and tax responsibilities associated with doing this.

What is SMSF?

Financial and Legal Knowledge

For those considering a Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF), it’s crucial to have a strong grasp of finance and legal matters. This knowledge enables informed decision-making and ensures compliance with regulations, a foundational aspect of SMSF management according to the Association of Superannuation Funds Australia (ASFA).


Financial Resources

An SMSF’s feasibility largely depends on having sufficient funds. The costs include setup, annual operations, and professional fees for accounting, tax, audit, and legal advice. Adequate financial resources ensure the fund’s performance justifies these expenses, making it a vital consideration for potential SMSF trustees.

Time Commitment and Insurance

An SMSF requires dedication to research and manage investments effectively. Additionally, securing life insurance, including income protection and total and permanent disability cover, is essential for the fund’s long-term security. These factors are integral to determining if an SMSF suits your financial strategy and lifestyle.

You Can Do It All Yourself

Despite some people calling SMSFs ‘do it yourself super’ or ‘DIY funds’ you will have to work with some other people to meet your obligations. You will need an independent self-managed super fund auditor who is registered with ASIC to complete your fund’s audit each year. In some circumstances, you will need a qualified actuary to provide you with an actuarial certificate. Each year, you need to value your assets at market value. In some circumstances, you will need an independent valuer who is qualified to do this; for example, to value artwork.
