Whether you’re an employee in a company or you own the company, throughout your working life you will have been accruing superannuation to support you in retirement. Changing to a self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) allows you to control how your superannuation money is invested. Establishing an SMSF is a tax-efficient way of generating greater income for your future, ensuring a better retirement lifestyle.
However, if you set up an SMSF, the obligations on you can become overwhelming: under an SMSF, you become the trustee of that fund and have to manage it in accordance with its trust deed and tax law, as well as complying with ongoing administrative obligations.
We help you attain all the benefits of an SMSF but take the hassle of fulfilling the extensive accounting requirements off your hands. We handle all documentation required by legislation, ensure that the fund is audited each year, keep your SMSF Deed up to date, obtain actuarial certificates where required, and ensure that deadlines for lodgements are met. Plus we work with your own financial advisors (or our in-house financial advisor) to guide you on contributions, pensions and investments.
Monthly/Quarterly Management Reports and Quarterly Review/Strategy Meetings
It pays to regularly keep track of your business’ performance. With our business advice, you will be able to identify any unforseen issues and take immediate action to ensure the success and longevity of your business.
We help you manage your finances comprehensively by scheduling monthly or quarterly meetings to discuss your Key Performance Indicators (KPI), comparing your present trading results to the those of previous periods, analysing your budget, and gauging your future performance. We develop tailored strategies to enable you to thoroughly tackle any problems we identify.
Don’t wait until the last minute before thinking of your tax payments; the less tax you pay, the more funds that stay in your business to fuel its growth. We analyse and review your actual results to March to estimate your annual performance, helping you to plan ahead, reduce your tax payments and avoid any nasty surprises.
Tax-efficient Business Structuring
Business needs change over time, and often the structure that was recommended when your business first started is not the best structure for its current size or to ensure its future growth. Put simply, tax-efficient business structuring saves you money.
We review your business structure and make recommendations about the optimal setup for your current circumstances and future plans, ensuring you minimise your tax obligations.
Businesses and individuals have unique financial circumstances, so it is important to get thorough expert advice several years in advance of your planned retirement. Whether you plan to keep your business in the family upon your retirement or sell it to a third party, passing on the reins of your business requires careful planning.
We’ll work closely with your legal advisors to provide a seamless transfer or sale of your business, helping you to avoid unexpected liabilities and to minimise your tax payments.
Wealth Creation Planning
If you’re planning on selling your business to fund a comfortable retirement, proper planning is required to ensure the best possible retirement income.
We can advise you on the ideal structure to maximise and grow your assets and will work with your financial planners (or refer you to our in-house financial planner) to ensure the best outcome.
We help you ensure that, if you were to pass away, the money that you accumulated over your working life is passed on to your beneficiaries rather than being consumed by taxes.
We will work with your solicitors to ensure the best overall results for your beneficiaries, protecting your assets and utilising all the available tax-free transfers and thresholds.
