SMSF is the fastest growing sector of the superannuation industry. The reasons for this growth are the benefits of investment control, range of investment choices, tax concessions and administrative cost savings.
However, with these benefits & control comes responsibilities. This is where we help you by removing the complexity, looking after all your compliance and administration needs, and guiding you along every step towards your goals.

What is a SMSF (Self-managed super fund)?
SMSF’s do what the name implies. Rather than paying super contributions into an industry fund or wrap, you pay it into a fund that you run yourself. A SMSF is a special purpose trust where money and investments are held and managed on behalf of the members. The fund’s purpose is to provide benefits to members on retirement or death.

At EPA Group, we provide everything you need to get your Self Managed Super Fund up and running, from creating the structure, attending to accounting and audit requirements, developing an SMSF portfolio that’s perfect for you and planning for your estate planning needs.

  • Using borrowing strategies to buy property as a proposition if you wish to own your business premises.
