SMSF guidance & advice

It is possible, and not at all difficult, to buy an investment property using your Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF). The key point, as with any purchase or transaction involving an SMSF, is that the fund must remain compliant according to Australian laws. Though it is up to the trustees of the fund to maintain that compliance, the licensed financial planners partners of Landmark Investments Australia can provide you with all the guidance and advice you need prior to the purchase of your investment property.

Arrange Your SMSF with a recommended Landmarkfinancial planner.

Establishing a Self-Managed Super Fund is easy. How can we help you?

  • Let one of our recommended financial planners coordinate with your fund manager, insurance company, the ATO, and if necessary your bank to open the required bank account in the name of your newly-created superannuation account.
  • They will help you establish a complete SMSF with all the required entities to purchase the selected property.
  • Landmark’s associated finance arm will help your SMSF secure the best finance available, ensuring all Self-Managed Super Fund documents related to your investment purchase comply fully with superannuation laws and regulations, maximising your ongoing success.

Your 8 Point SMSF Checklist

Seeking the right advice about your self-managed super fund will improve its likelihood of paying big dividends.

Before moving forward with your SMSF investment purchase, we suggest reviewing our essential eight-point checklist. Become familiar with the most important points of purchasing property using Superannuation, and one of our associated professional consultants will tend to these for you.

Of course, this is not an exhaustive list and it should not be viewed as formal advice. Self-Managed Super Fund purchases involve many financial and tax issues, and every transaction is unique.
