What is Self managed superannuation fund?

The Basic definition

A superannuation fund is a self managed superannuation fund (SMSF) if it meets the following conditions:

  • Has less than 5 members;
  • Each individual trustee of the fund is a fund member;
  • Each member of the fund is a trustee;
  • No member of the fund is an employee of another member of the fund, unless those members are related;
  • No trustee of the fund receives any remuneration for his or her services as a trustee;

A SMSF can also have a company a trustee (known as a corporate trustee) if:

  • Each director of the company is a member of the fund;
  • Each member of the fund is a director of the company; and
  • the fund has less than 5 members; no member is an employee of another member (unless related) and the trustee does not receive remuneration for their services as a trustee.

The requirements that all members be trustees ensures that each member is fully involved and has the opportunity to participate in the decision-making processes of the fund. This promotes true self-management. The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) will regulate funds that meet the definition of the SMSF.
