What About SMSF?

From age 60, your super will typically be accessible tax free. From there, you’ll have a variety of options. Many Australians seek the benefits of a self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF), but it is not for everyone. A SMSF means you’re not only a member, but also a trustee, which means you get to decide what to invest in. Whilst this may sound good, there are complex legislations and legal structures that need to be adhered to. And while there are many benefits to an SMSF, it is very administration-heavy.

At Sunshine Coast Financial Advisers, our team can better explain it in more detail and help advise if an SMSF is an appropriate strategy for you. If it is a path that is right for you, we can also help you set it up and manage it professionally.
