A self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) is an excellent way of taking control of your superannuation investment enabling you to make decisions on how you will invest your money. By taking control of your superannuation you can invest in:

  • Shares
  • Cash
  • Property, many of our clients are currently using their SMSF to acquire the property they run their business from.

When you manage your own fund it is important you get it right.  There are many rules and regulations in the various laws governing superannuation that are designed to protect your retirement income. As a trustee of the fund, you need to adhere to the rules and know that you are ultimately responsible for the running of the fund.

At MJN Accounting we provide advice to support you and help you to comply with the rules and regulations.
