A SMSF is your own personal Superannuation Fund that gives you greater control over how your Superannuation is invested, giving you the flexibility to decide where you invest your money. This could be an ideal option for DIY Investors who prefer to make their own investment choices for their retirement, rather than leaving the management of their superannuation in the hands of others.
The choice of investments can be wider with a self managed fund because of the opportunity to invest in direct property, as well as the more traditional superannuation investments such as shares and managed funds. SMSF is a highly complex and ever changing area.
We can assist you by managing and advising in regard to:
- Fund establishment;
- Estate planning;
- Taxation planning;
- Record keeping;
- Preparation of funds annual financial statements;
- Organising the mandatory fund audit; and
- Ongoing advice to the trustee.
In addition, our in house financial planning service can assist you with investment strategy and choice.

Various studies indicate that 80% of small businesses fail in the first five years. Research indicates that those businesses, which are well prepared are those that perform best. Starting a business is a process. We can assist you with that process in the following ways:
Business Plan Preparation:
A well organised business plan gives you the ability to test your ideas on paper and provide structure to your business, what it does, its offerings and how you will achieve it. It also shows prospective financiers that you are serious about your business operations, have a plan on how to achieve your organisational goals and where you want to be in the next 5 years.
Business Structure Choice:
Choosing the business structure is not just about getting the best tax result. It is about what is right for you whilst providing flexibility for your future expansion plans. Getting the right business structure is crucial. We have experience with a wide range of structures starting from basic sole traders to complex trust and company structures.
Assess your Finance Requirements:
Sometimes the biggest obstacle to business growth is ensuring that you have the right finance in place to grow. A proactive approach to your business needs ensures that you have sufficient capital to grow in the future.
Depending on your business you may need to be registered with several different bodies such as the Australian Taxation Office and ASIC.
We can formulate and implement financial controls that will comply with statutory requirements and assist in owner protection. It is easier to get your processes correct when the business is small, rather than waiting until later.
Assess ongoing viability:
As a general rule we like to discuss our client’s business results with them. We can also prepare management reporting packs that identify key drivers in the business and potential improvement areas. This helps you, the owner, keep control of your business.
Regardless of the level of maturity level of your business, from initial start-up through to established corporate enterprises, our business advisory team has the experience, insight and solutions that you need to achieve your business goals.
Review of Business Controls:
Sometimes simple measures can help your business control its resources, ensuring that the right person has access to the right resources to complete their jobs. In this case it is always about cost vs. benefit.
Review of Financial Performance:
The main objective in regard to financial reports must be that the reports are useful to the user. The first step is understanding the story the numbers are telling you and why.
Depending on the entity type you may need to prepare company or trust minutes of meetings, or you may need to prepare an annual company return. We can prepare all necessary documentation to ensure you comply with your requirements.
Business Strategic Planning:
Where is your business going? What are your goals and more importantly how are you going to get there?
What information do your managers need to complete their job appropriately? Is it timely accurate and relevant?
