Do more in less time with our SMSF administration solutions

Why is SMSF Administration Important?

While SMSFs offer trustees a degree of flexibility when managing their own super fund, that flexibility comes with many responsibilities. One of those responsibilities includes administration.

Consistent SMSF administration ensures that the SMSF meets all compliance regulations proposed by the Australian Taxation Office & other superannuation legislation. If trustees aren’t meeting their administrative obligations, they risk a range of ATO penalties, including the issuing of non-compliance notices, administrative penalties and enforceable undertakings.

Some SMSF administration duties include:
  • Setting up the self-managed super fund with a compliant SMSF trust deed
  • Drafting compliant SMSF investment strategy & adapting it where necessary
  • Appointing an independent auditor to undertake an annual SMSF audit
  • Maintaining existing SMSF financial records
  • Paying the ATO supervisory levy
  • Reporting trustee changes
  • Preparation of annual financial statements
  • Lodgement of tax returns
  • Ongoing fund management

Seeking SMSF Administrative Assistance

SMSFs can be an excellent way for your clients to invest in their retirement with the right plan. But, one of the biggest factors in managing an SMSF is staying compliant with regulatory and legislative requirements, which can be tricky.

By seeking SMSF strategic advice, professional advice, and administrative assistance, SMSF experts can ensure careful management and ensure that the fund meets all its compliance regulations and stays on top of its investments.

Our SMSF Administration Service

We offer the choice of a premium daily administration service or a simple, low-cost annual service.

Daily SMSF Administration

The Daily administration service includes:
  • Software costs
  • SMSF administration
  • Accounting
  • Tax including the preparation and lodgement of SMSF tax returns
  • SMSF compliance requirements including the preparation of financial accounts

Bundling these services together creates a very cost-effective service for an accountant and financial adviser in practice, and an independent audit can be added for an additional fee.

We also offer a Daily Plus administration service that includes everything you expect in the Daily SMSF administration service plus a range of trustee services, including:

  • Fund mailbox
  • Client liaison
  • ASIC and ATO agency
  • SMSF audit

Our core SMSF administration service provides accountants and financial adviser seeking access to a dedicated team of SMSF professionals who care for their clients.

For both services, trustees can stay on top of their obligations. Using our Daily or Daily Plus SMSF administration services, we can process fund transactions as the bank account synchronises with the superannuation software – which facilitates easy reconciliations, investments revaluations and member transactions.

The data is stored in the cloud so all fund stakeholders can access the same, up to date information. And, instead of waiting months for annual financial data, the latest information is available 24/7. We can even help set up your clients’ on the software app so that they can stay engaged with their SMSF.

Annual SMSF Administration

The Annual administration service suits SMSFs that do not require daily administration, online access or Transfer Balance Account Reports (TBAR).

Your annual compliance work can be completed once a year for a low fixed fee.

We can process funds on your current software (provided it is on our approved list), or we can set up funds on your nominated software platform, maintaining the licence on your behalf. You simply need to supply the normal fund documents (Bank statements, Investment statements, Rollover details etc.).

Our checklist will assist you in collating the required documents, or you can send this to your clients to know what to provide.

We will process all transactions and journals and prepare Draft accounts, SMSF Annual Return and Trustee Documents for review and approval.
