The Benefits of a Self-Managed Super Fund

By taking control of your superannuation using a Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF) 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 its investment property, shares, a Managed Fund or term deposit. In other words, control lies in the hands of those who actually put up the money – you!

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.
