Self-Managed Super Fund
You must be wondering what is a self-managed super fund (SMSF)? It is a private super fund that an individual manages by herself. Self Managed Super Funds are separate for the industry and retail sector.
In the case of SMSF, an individual puts the money one would normally put in a retail or industry super fund into his own SMSF and choose the investments and the insurance option.
According to ATO guidelines, an SMSF can hold up to four members. As a member of SMSF, one becomes the trustee of the fund. Some People choose a corporate trustee. The main highlight of this that the individual who is a member of SMSF is responsible for the fund.
Though it sounds exciting to manage your own super, it is full of risks. One should take the help of Accountants to handle this crucial fund.
