Managing your own super is a big responsibility – possibly bigger than most realize when they first start considering doing so. Your super is meant for your retirement, so there is a labyrinth of special rules about how supers can be managed. The pitfalls can be costly and even result in legal proceedings so as they say – it is better to look before you leap. That’s the reason for this article.
When thinking about managing your own super your best course of action is to first seek professional advice – don’t be afraid to admit what you don’t know and talk to someone who does.
You need to realize that managing your own super can take considerable amounts of time and requires a fair amount of skill. You need to be sure you have the time and ability to handle these tasks – and the time to learn more as you go forward. Be sure you understand the applicable and tax laws and understand the risks. You will be required to tailor your trust deed and investment strategy to suit the other members of your fund. You must be sure you can meet all the record keeping and reporting obligations. And you must be sure you understand and can comply with your annual auditing obligations.
Everything mentioned in the above last paragraph leads you back to the sentence that preceded it – first seek professional advice. Talk to the people who make SMSF Management their business.
