Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSFs) can be an ideal choice for business owners and individuals looking to control their own superannuation.

McKinley Plowman has a range of tailored SMSF products, and our team of dedicated professionals can assist in the establishment of a fund that will allow you to make strategic decisions and decide where and how to invest your money. With a McKinley Plowman SMSF you get flexibility and choice, along with the secure feeling that you have the backing of our professional team, from establishment, preparation and lodgement of financial statements and tax obligations through to effective financing, tax planning and wealth building strategies.

McKinley Plowman SMSF: Award-Winning Service

Our dedication to providing industry-leading SMSF services has seen us take home the award for the Best Self-Managed Super Fund Firm (<$30m revenue) in the nation-wide 2023 Client Choice Awards. So, if you engage McKinley Plowman to assist you with your SMSF needs, you can be sure that you’re dealing with the best in the country.

SMSF Setup

As with many financial products, establishing a Self-Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) is best left to the professionals. At McKinley Plowman, we firstly assist by determining whether your goals and financial position make the setup of a SMSF feasible for you. This includes evaluating your super balance (typically at least $300,000 is required to make a SMSF viable) and understanding how it will fit into your overall financial plan.

If a SMSF is appropriate, we can establish it on your behalf and guide you through the setup process by coordinating the relevant documentation and structures. Once the fund is active, we can then look after the accounting and audit requirements in order to keep everything compliant.

Strategic Advice

SMSF strategy has become increasingly important as laws relating to SMSFs have become very complex. The need for advice is now more important than ever.

Whether it is doing property development, contributing to your SMSF to save tax on the sale of your business, setting up a pension or dealing with the death of a member, McKinley Plowman can assist with each stage of your SMSF life.

SMSF Compliance

With an unparalleled knowledge of superannuation legislation, McKinley’s SMSF team is well equipped to assist trustees, accountants and financial planners with SMSF compliance.
