SuperEasy® rewards its clients who choose to pay for the Establishment and 1st Annual Administration of their SMSF as a combined service for a fee of $1,645!

With an up front saving of $195, off the combined cost for the setup and administration when they are purchased separately! There are number of benefits from taking the opportunity to buy the setup and administration of the fund as a packaged deal, apart from the money saving: it allows you to relax, because once you have purchased the product, we will remind you when the administration process needs to start, and also it allows us to plan for our busy season when we start processing the funds.

Before embarking on an SMSF you should also visit the ASIC's MoneySmart website and the ATO web site as the ATO regulates SMSFs and provides useful information about the obligations and duties of trustees in managing an SMSF. You need to know that managing your own superannuation is a major commitment that can be expensive and involve significant time and effort. SMSFs are not for everyone. You should consider your personal circumstances carefully before deciding to establish an SMSF.

The Australian Taxation Office also provides free online courses for SMSF trustees:

Ownership of documents Any documents, files, spreadsheets, accounting software files, notes, checklists that we produce to do the financial statements, tax return and audit remain the property of the firm. The financial statements, tax returns and audit documents that we are specifically engaged to prepare, together with any original documents given to us by you remain yours.

* Fees for our services SuperEasy®'s costs are time based and depend on the amount of work required to complete a specific task. That's why, whenever possible, we base our charges on the number of investments. Other factors, which could influence our fees, are the completeness and correctness of the records and documents that you provide. Let us know if your fund has a large number of transactions per investments (over 15 per investment), or does " Day trading". Day trading is a practice of buying and selling financial instruments within the same trading day. Additional fee might apply for day trading of investments. While we will do our best to provide the accurate estimate based on the client’s input at the time of quoting, the final price will depend on the actual work performed and time spent on processing of the fund. Please note that all work is carried out by experienced, superannuation specialists in Australia, and is fully covered by the appropriate professional indemnity insurance and meets CPA Quality Assurance Standards APES320 and APES325.
