At many times in your life, you’ll seek a professional opinion. You’ll visit a doctor for a medical condition, an accountant for tax guidance and a lawyer for property planning advice.
So if you’re planning on running a self-managed super fund, it makes sense to seek expert advice to review your savings plan and help you build a superannuation strategy for retirement.
The ultimate aim when running your own SMSF is to deliver your fund members a reliable income in retirement, while ensuring you follow the Australian superannuation laws. An experienced advisor will make sure your money is invested in assets that will grow in value over time, and they’ll ensure you are maximising your tax advantages at the same time.

There’s a professional SMSF advisor for every aspect related to self-managing your super fund, including accountants, licensed financial advisors and lawyers.

It’s also important to note that under Australian superannuation laws, you are legally required to appoint an approved auditor to conduct your SMSF annual audits. The financial audit checks that your funds are accurate, and the compliance audit checks that you are running your SMSF in accordance with Australian superannuation laws.
