Questions & Answers

What is an SMSF?

An SMSF is your own personal Superannuation Fund that gives you total control over how your Super Benefit is invested. An SMSF is ideal for the DIY Investor who prefers to make their own Investment choices for their retirement, rather than leave their Superannuation in the hands of others. Read our article "The great % rort - Examining percentage fees in superannuation" to see an analysis which compares SMSFs to other types of Superfunds.

What can an SMSF invest in?

Please visit our Investments Allowed page on our website for a comprehensive summary of Permitted Investments and detailed issues to consider.

What is a Trustee?

The Trustees control the SMSF and make all the investment decisions for the SMSF. When you establish an SMSF, you have a choice of whether to appoint Individual Trustees or a Company Trustee to act for your SMSF. Each option is detailed below. It is important to understand that SMSF Trustees do not own the Fund Assets, but are simply responsible for administering the SMSF which includes:

  • Maintaining all records of the SMSF (noting that ESUPERFUND maintains most records electronically)
  • Establishing an SMSF Investment Strategy (noting a Standard Strategy is provided by ESUPERFUND)
  • Complying with all regulations under Superannuation Laws (detailed in our Learn Section)
  • Lodging Tax and Regulatory Returns (attended to by ESUPERFUND)

Further details about the roles and responsibilities of Trustees can be found in the ATO publication "Role and Responsibilities of Trustees".

What is a Member?

The Members of an SMSF own the SMSF assets. Only Members of an SMSF can contribute to the SMSF. Members must also act as the Trustees for the SMSF, meaning that the Members also control the SMSF.
