Horizon Superannuation SMSF Set up and Administration

Step 1 for future proof finance

Don’t be put off the negative comments from big super funds about managing your own fund. With the right people in your corner, SMSF set up is simple and the first step to building your retirement savings. SMSFs are different to other types of super funds, because the members of the fund are usually the trustees. As a member and the trustee, you’re responsible for complying with tax and super laws.

Paperwork made simple

You need some smarts to organise SMSF set up, but it’s not out of reach. We’ll deal with the legal requirements to arrange your:

trust deed and Corporate Trustee

Australian Business Number (ABN) application and TFN

notice of election to become a regulated fund

minutes, membership application forms and member advice notice

fund bank account

share broking account for buying and selling shares (if required).

Set up costs

Establishing your SMSF is done on a fixed price structure. You know exactly what you’re paying and why. Once only set up costs:

SMSF for individual trustees: $660 (includes Trust Deed, all documentation and GST)

Corporate Trustee Company: $1290 (including GST)

Corporate Trustee and SMSF: $1950 (including GST)

SMSF's can operate with only one member or up to 6 family members.

Top tips for setting up your SMSF

Your personal circumstances are unique, and you should always get, professional advice from qualified SMSF advisors. Top tips on how to set up a fund to take control of your super:

get advice from a SMSF specialist advisor who is up to date with compliance laws, and smart super and tax strategies

assess your needs and apply for insurance – this will include lifeinsurance, total and permanent disability (TPD) insurance and income protectioninsurances

work with a team who stay in touch and are proactive – not someone youonly hear from when something goes wrong
