Compliance with superannuation law

The laws relating to SMSFs are constantly changing. This makes it hard for trustees to keep up to date.

For this reason, it is very valuable to have a trusted superannuation adviser who can answer all your questions and warn you of any possible issues.

Relevant legislation

Your fund will need to comply with a variety of legislation that relates to:

  • Limiting investments in property owned by related parties.
  • Restricting when members can draw money from the fund.
  • Maintaining the sole purpose of the fund to provide retirement benefits.
  • Only allowing eligible trustees and members to act for the fund.
  • Retaining financial records.
  • Complying with the rules of your trust deed.
  • Only borrowing in limited circumstances.
