What is SMSF?

Self Managed Super Funds (SMSF) are a form of Superannuation Fund that can provide members with direct control of their Retirement Savings, provide a wider choice of investment options, Tax advantages and greater flexibility (over traditional Industry and Retail Super Funds).

In today’s volatile economic climate Superannuation Funds continue to be one of the most effective ways for individuals (especially business owners and self-employed contractors) to build Wealth in a Tax effective manner.

In conjunction with our Strategic Partners and Superannuation-related industry experts, Axis Accounting have been advising clients on Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF) since their introduction in 1994 and can assist clients in;

  • SMSF set up / Tax Compliance ( Including Bare Trusts for Geared Property Purchases)
  • SMSF Administration, Auditing & Compliance services
  • SMSF Investment Strategies & Advice

Axis Accounting recognises that for Superannuation Strategies, such as Self Managed Super Funds, to be effective, financial advisors must take into account the client’s complete financial position (including family trusts and any existing Company structures) together with a comprehensive investment risk profile.

  • Asset Purchase & Disposal (Shares & Property) – and CGT Implications
  • Investment in Specialist Assets (Instalment Warrants & Art / Collectables)
  • SMSF Gearing Strategies for Investment purposes
  • Salary sacrificing into SMSF
