SELF MANAGED SUPER FUNDS (SMSF)
Over 1 million Australians have selected SMSF to control their own superannuation and are managing over $600 billion in assets through SMSFs as per the latest statistics released by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA), and the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
Many Australians see numerous benefits in establishing SMSF. It gives you the opportunity to manage your Income Tax on investment income and capital gains, and also it provides you with the freedom to make investment choices and the asset selection. You could involve between 1-4 members with similar financial goals to combine funds. It also enables you to transfer your shares and other listed securities directly into superannuation, and also invest in your business’ commercial real property and assist your business’ cash flow.
Importantly, SMSFs can borrow via limited recourse borrowing arrangements (LRBAs), provided the asset is allowed under the rules of the SISA Act. SMSF loans enable you to borrow to invest in property – either residential or commercial.
