Releases New Guides to Fundamental SMSF Topics

Covering everything from application and setup to borrowing for property investment, new guides will clarify things for many Australians, reports published four new guides that will of great use to many Australians. With interest in the flexibility of self-managed super funds already high and still growing, many Australians have questions about how to set up, operate, borrow for, or wind down these important retirement assets. Linked directly from, several new reports address these issues in the context of the latest regulatory revisions and other contemporary factors.

"The self managed super fund can be an incredibly powerful and rewarding tool," representative Paul Baggetta said, "Unfortunately, this topic has also proved to be a confusing one for many, thanks to the complexity and fast-changing nature of the associated rules. We think our new guides to the various stages of the SMSF life-cycle are going to be of great use to many readers. As always, we're also available to provide our professional assistance with any related needs that might arise."

Contemplating in the 1990s the looming retirement of the Baby Boomer generation, the Australian government, like many others around the world, began looking for ways to ensure that the associated costs would not drag down the country's economy. One pillar of the plan that resulted was the creation of a mandatory, employer-funded superannuation system that would pay out upon each worker's retirement, with additional voluntary contributions also being encouraged.

While many Australian workers today see their superannuation payments shuttled into large funds managed by corporations or third-party financial firms, there is another option: The relevant laws also allow for self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs) that serve the same basic purpose, while giving their director-beneficiaries quite a bit in the way of latitude as to what they prioritize and how they are run.

Opting for an SMSF does, however, mean having to live up to all of the related regulatory requirements, leaving many who might benefit from this possibility wondering where to start. As the online presence of one of Australia's leading SMSF advisory firms, is stocked with information that can help answer many of the most common questions.

The new resources address every stage of the typical SMSF lifetime, from the initial application and setup phase to managing the fund over the years, borrowing to increase investment leverage, and winding things down upon retirement. The new guides are linked prominently at, where visitors can also learn how to arrange for one-on-one help with their SMSF questions and goals.

Helping Australians make the most of a powerful, flexible retirement investing tool, provides a wealth of information about SMSFs and access to the most informed advice and effective assistance available anywhere.
