Advice for young farmer’s cash flow management, debt reduction and personal risk protection to cover their family and assets are vital. Asset and insurance policy ownership can have a significant impact on tax outcomes and debt levels, you now have the opportunity to utilise superannuation to assist the farming business in the short-term.
At Consortium Private Wealth we establish whether a SMSF is the most suitable superannuation structure for your personal situation. We will review you current superannuation policies to consider the level of assets, ongoing & potential redemption costs, and investments. We will also consider your other assets to increase the potential benefits of a SMSF, assets like commercial property and passive investments that affect your taxable income.
Self Managed Superannuation Funds are complex structures and are not suitable for everyone. SMSF are vastly more complex and onerous to manage on an ongoing basis when compare to either a retail or industry superannuation fund so the decision to setup a SMSF should not be taken lightly.
A self managed superannuation fund is a concessionally taxed structure that has the sole purpose of providing retirement or death benefits to its members or beneficiaries.
SMSF’s are regulated by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and you can choose to manage yourself or with the assistance of professional advisers.
There can be no more than four trustees/members within a self managed superannuation fund and there are strict rules on where a self managed superannuation fund can invest.
How much money you need to set up a self managed super fund often depends on how hands-on you are? The more you can do yourself in terms of administration and investment decision-making the more efficient your fund will run, which can be around $250,000. Where advice is required on an ongoing basis such as investment advice and administration services we would suggest a minimum of $400,000.
