A Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) allows you it manage your superannuation and the investment is done to get a return. It’s under the rules of the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). Even if you can manage your own super fund, you can’t perform your own audit legally. That’s why you need an independent auditor approved by the ATO to perform the annual audit for the SMSF’s annual tax return. Since there are a lot of legal work that needs to be done when you manage your own super fund, Citrine can give you expert and experienced advice and even connect you to reliable and trusted professionals that can give you the assurance that your fund is managed correctly.
You can invest your super fund assets on SMSF property. When you decide to use your superfund for property investment, you can get a loan for the property and the fund you have will serve as collateral. This has a good safety plan if ever you are unable to pay for the loan based on the terms agreed upon. If the property investment fails and the profit spent isn’t able to pay for the loan, the lenders can have the option of taking the property as a payment. And they don’t have the rights or access to other assets from the SMSF.
