Self-managed super funds (SMSFs)

Workplace Bulletin
Dear Reader,
As I'm sure you're well aware, self-managed super funds (SMSFs) are fast becoming one of the most popular ways for Australians to manage their superannuation.

There are now over 509,000 SMSFs in existence in Australia (an increase of more than 25% on the amount that existed just 5 years ago!) – and that number is continuing to grow.

Given that SMSFs allow you to decide when, how and where your retirement money is invested, not to mention make all the crucial decisions that affect your financial future, it's little wonder they are so popular.

But knowing exactly how to go about starting an SMSF can be a daunting task...

For starters, how do you set it up? What about all the duties you will have as a trustee? And how will you stay up-to-date with any changes to the law that affect your role?

If you're considering setting up an SMSF and don't know where to start – or you already have one but you're concerned about how you'll stay on top of your responsibilities, I'd like to introduce you to a simple, cost effective solution...

Everything you need to know about running a self-managed super fund – in one place!
Portner Press will soon be launching the SMSF Handbook, a user-friendly print and online guide that gives you all the information you need to set up and run your own SMSF.

It covers everything you need to understand to manage your SMSF IN FULL – from setting it up, to complying with difficult and ever-changing super legislation, to the investment rules you need to follow and more.

With the help of the handbook, you'll be able to manage your SMSF with the peace of mind that you have all your legal and trustee responsibilities down pat – so you'll have more time to spend working towards the lifestyle you deserve in retirement.
Kind regards,
Pippa McKee
