Self-managed Superannuation Funds
Setting yourself up in super can be a complicated and sometimes daunting task. Walsh Accounting can provide information on the pros and cons of all superannuation options, with no obligation to proceed if you find self-managed super is 'not for you'.
There are several trust laws and legislative requirements for setting up a self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF). Typically you need to:
Obtain a trust deed
Appoint trustees or establish a company as a corporate trustee (if preferred)
Sign a trustee declaration (NAT 71089)
Elect to become a regulated fund
Obtain a tax file number (TFN)
Obtain an Australian business number (ABN)
