The Garis Group provides a comprehensive SMSF accounting, administration and investment service, right here in the heart of Hamilton. We deliver solid advice to help our clients build their wealth and asset base to create a beautiful financial future for themselves and their loved ones.
What is a Self-Managed Super Fund?
The difference between a Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF) and other types of superannuation funds is that the members of an SMSF are usually also the trustees. This means the members of the SMSF (you) run it for their own benefit (yours!) and are responsible for complying with the super and tax laws (that’s where we help).
This is a complex, regularly changing area requiring a lot of expertise. We would love to help you understand how to get the best out of your self-managed super fund.
SMSF Questions We Love To Answer
- How can I take control of my future?
- Who will take care of all the paperwork?
- When can I retire?
- Will I have enough to live comfortably?
- Where should I invest my money?
Make your super hassle-free; create a beautiful financial future.
Invest in Suitable Property
Did you know you can purchase property with your super fund? With an SMSF you can own residential or commercial property, which can be a wise investment. Not only that, recent changes in legislation now allow your super fund to borrow money for real estate investment, whether that’s in Newcastle, the Hunter Valley, Sydney or further afield. There are significant legal requirements for borrowing within a super fund, so talk to us about how to do this.
Implement Your Wealth Growth Strategy
A superannuation investment strategy is both a legal requirement, and a great way to ensure your best possible financial future. Having an SMSF gives you control over where and how you invest for your future, and we want to help you get it right.
Administration and Audit Included
Any superannuation fund comes with a large amount of paperwork and due diligence required. We at The Garis Group are SMSF specialists, providing a comprehensive SMSF accounting, administration and investment service.
