Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSFs) can be a very effective way of saving for retirement. But they can also have pitfalls. Let PKF show you how to build a high-performing, hassle-free SMSF.

Deal with your SMSF legal obligations; ensure that your fund is tax-compliant; and minimise reporting hassles.

A self-managed super fund (SMSF) is the most flexible of all superannuation options.

An SMSF can reduce your superannuation administration costs and the tax you pay on investment income and capital gains.

It can also give ongoing tax benefits from an allocated pension fund upon retirement.

If you set up an SMSF you make the investment decisions for the fund, but you are also held responsible for complying with superannuation and tax laws, as well as other fund administration and accounting.

You will need expert advice to do this well.
