Superannuation Services & Self-Managed Superannuation Funds
Changes to superannuation legislation have provided Australians with more options in regard to their superannuation decisions. A self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF), provides more control over how funds are managed. The decision to establish a self-managed superannuation fund comes with both benefit and risk. Marin Accountants expert SMSF team assists clients in devising the best strategy to provide for their retirement, along with tackling the complexities of superannuation rules and SIS regulations.
