Expert advice for easy compliance
Maximise the return of your SMSF
SMSF’s are the fastest growing sector in the superfund industry – for good reason! When managed well, SMSF’s give you far greater investment control and the potential to outperform industry funds.
One critical aspect of having a SMSF is being able to handle taxation in the most efficient way possible. Maximising your contributions to super can be a great way to reduce your tax bill, but it is important to have expert advice as SMSF tax law can be complicated.
At Excel Financial Solutions we can advise on maximising tax deductions for your superfund, like setting up your life insurance policies through the SMSF. Our team are experts when it comes to setting up the best SMSF entity structure for tax benefits, and can advise on how to best manage concessional and non-concessional super contributions so you can get the most out of your money in the long run.
Tax law is a moving landscape – especially for SMSF’s
A self managed super fund involves a lot more responsibility for you as a director – this means being aware of legal regulations and making sure you are always compliant. SMSF’s legally need to be audited every year and breaches in compliance can lead to being reported to the ATO, and sometimes deregistration for the fund.
Tax law moves fast, and keeping up to date can be a headache for SMSF directors. At Excel Financial Solutions, our accounting and auditing team are experts in the field and are always staying on top of legal changes. If you are considering moving to a SMSF or already have one set up, it is important to talk with a SMSF expert. We can let you know about any upcoming legal changes, or any grey areas of compliance that your SMSF may need to address.
Having an expert in your corner, keeps you on the right side of the ATO and ensures your SMSF can keep delivering you consistent results over time.
