How does an SMSF Work?

SMSFs are established for the sole purpose of providing financial benefits to members in retirement and their beneficiaries. An SMSF has its own Tax File Number (TFN), Australian Business Number (ABN) and transactional bank account, which allows them to receive contributions and rollovers, make investments and pay out pensions.

SMSF investments are all made in the name of the specified fund and are controlled by the trustees.

There are two trustee structure options:

  1. Corporate trustee –Essentially, a company is acting as trustee for the fund.Each member of the fund must be a director of the company, and each director of the corporate trustee must be a member of the fund (except for single-member funds)
  2. Individual trustee – each member is appointed as a trustee, with a minimum of two trustees required. Each member of the fund must be a trustee, and each trustee must be a member of the fund (except for single-member funds) .   Information Source: ATO
