How to Set Up A Self-Managed Super Fund

SMSFs Are The Fastest Growing Sector In The Super Industry
The growth of SMSFs reflects the increase in understanding of superannuation of the average Australian and the SMSFs ability to maximise net retirement funds through tax minimisation. The popularity of SMSFs has also highlighted the increasing desire of more Australians to control and administer their own retirement savings.

Is an SMSF the right choice for you?

How to Set Up A Self-Managed Superannuation Fund

The potential benefits of investing in property through a SMSF structure include:

  • Greater control over your retirement investments
  • Choice over your investments
  • Avoiding higher institutional fund fees
  • If you sell the property while still in the “accumulation” phase, the fund generally pays Capital Gains Tax (CGT) of up to 10% on property value growth (if owned for 12+ months).
  • On the other hand, if you decide to sell the property after you have transferred it into the “pension” phase, any capital gain will be exempt from tax altogether!
  • However, this strategy isn’t for everyone as there are rules and regulations that restrict what you can and can’t do with property owned by a SMSF.
