SMSF (Accounting & Tax)

Back to services

Self-managed super funds (SMSFs), are now a significant segment of the super industry.  For most Australians their superannuation is the biggest investment they have.

For trustees of SMSFs, managing your own fund and getting it right is very important. There are many rules and regulations in the various laws that govern super that are designed to protect your retirement income. As a trustee, you need to adhere to the rules and know that you are ultimately responsible for the running of the fund, even if you use tax, financial and super professionals to help to manage it.

At Allen & Co Accountants we provide compliance services to help you comply with the rules and regulations.
