Cost to set up your SMSF
What is included...
Upfront payment is paid via Paypal at the time of application and paid back to you from your super after you receive your rollover, which is normally approx. 3 weeks from application.
You should ensure all trustees are eligible to run an SMSF as there are no refunds on the establishment fees.
If you do not have the $1600 right now, you can borrow the set up costs and have the fund pay the establishment fees back once you receive the rollover, which is usually under 30 days. Interest and other charges may apply and are not payable by the fund* You can compare short term lenders that might be suitable here: https://www.finder.com.au/short-term-loans
The costs to run your SMSF (all paid from your super)
Monthly fees include the following...
Monthly fees are automatically debited from the SMSF and are a tax deduction for the fund. The first debit will bring the fund up to date for the financial year. This means the first debit payment will be $140 for each month from July this financial year to the first debit.
There is no discount for funds only being operational a portion of the year. This is because the cost to do the accounting, compliance and audit are the same regardless of how many months the fund is open for the year.
Fees not included in the monthly service fee.
The government charge an annual fee to have an SMSF. It is called the SMSF Supervisory Levy and is payable at tax time each year. *This figure is an estimate only and is expected to rise with inflation a couple of dollars a year. You pay this twice at your first SMSF tax return, then once per year.
