Self Managed Superannuation
Superannuation is a very tax effective environment for retirement savings. Self Managed Super Funds (SMSF) offer a vehicle that gives the owner options as to where to invest their super.
Contributing to superannuation remains a tax effective way to achieve retirement savings. With a low tax rate of just 15% on concessional contributions and earnings in accumulation phase, the superannuation fund is an excellent vehicle to look after your investment.
Self Managed Super Funds (SMSF) are a popular choice for those investment savvy persons who have at least $200,000 to invest. Investment decisions are made by the trustees which squarely puts the retirement future in the hands of the member.
Parker Crofts & Co offers a range of administration services to the owners of Self Managed Superannuation Funds. These include:
- Preparation of financial statements and taxation returns for the fund.
- Keeping detailed records of member balances.
- Assisting with document preparation.
- Tax planning for retirement
