Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) Accountants Sunshine Coast Queensland

More and more people are realising the advantages of making their own investment decisions and taking control of their retirement strategy.  An increasingly popular way of doing this is by setting up a self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF). 

An SMSF gives you control over specific investment choices involving their superannuation. You can tailor your own investment strategies and select specific assets such as:

Wardle Partners Accountants   Listed Shares Wardle Partners Accountants   Managed Investments Wardle Partners Accountants   Cash and Term Deposits
Wardle Partners Accountants   International Equities Wardle Partners Accountants   Cryptocurrency Wardle Partners Accountants   Commercial Property
Wardle Partners Accountants   Precious Metals Wardle Partners Accountants   Residential Property Wardle Partners Accountants   Instalment Warrants and so on.

A common strategy is for a husband and wife to combine their superannuation, increasing the pool of funds to invest and making it easier to work toward one common investment objective.

Since 1982 the dedicated and proactive SMSF team at Wardle Partners Accountants have provided a range of professional, quality services for SMSFs, including:

Transition From Other Accountants

Whether you are moving to the Coast and want a local relationship, or your accountant has let you down or doesn’t specialise in SMSF, Wardle Partners are here to provide you with peace of mind.  We’ve done lots of takeovers. The transition over to us is free of charge and a very seamless process.  We’ll even review your SMSF documentation and current set up for you.

SMSF Set up


If you have decided that a self-managed super fund is the right choice for you, our SMSF specialist will guide you through the establishment process and documentation of your investment goals. It’s essential to set up your SMSF properly so that it’s eligible for tax concessions and easier to manage once up and running.

Our goal is to make the whole process simple for you and ensure you have a full understanding of how it all works.

We will apply for an ABN, TFN complying status and register the SMSF for GST if required.  *We recommend you seek professional advice to assess and determine if a SMSF is appropriate to your circumstances.

Financial Statements Preparation

Financial Statements Preparation

Wardle Partners experienced and highly trained accountants will prepare first-class annual financial statements which will detail all the income, expenses, profit, asset sales & purchases and the value of investments.

Income Tax Return

Annual Income Tax Return Preparation and Lodgement

The SMSF annual return is more than an income tax return, it is also used to report super regulatory information, member contributions, and pay the SMSF supervisory levy. As Registered Tax Agents, Wardle Partners will accurately prepare and lodge your annual income tax return with the ATO.

SMSF Members

Preparation of Members Statements and Balances

As part of the annual Financial Statement preparation process, Wardle Partners will prepare a Member Statement for each member of the SMSF as this is a legal requirement. The Member Statements will summarise all contributions, contribution types, tax components, rollovers, preservation components and withdrawals made from the SMSF.

Annual Audit

Annual Audit

SMSFs are legally required to undergo an independent ATO-approved audit each year.  You can depend on the team at Wardle Partners to prepare accurate, compliant financial statements.  We’ll liaise with the auditor on your behalf so you won’t need to do a thing.

Investment Strategy

Investment Strategy

It is a legal requirement to have an Investment Strategy in place when you establish an SMSF – but it’s not a set-and-forget document. Your investment strategy will need to be regularly reviewed over the life of the fund to make sure it meets your objectives.   We can help you document your Investment Strategy and if you don’t have a strategy, we recommend obtaining advice from our associate partners, Compass Financial Solutions.

Borrowing Arrangements

Limited Recourse Borrowing Arrangements

It is possible to borrow money to acquire assets – generally property.  *The process is more involved than regular lending and you should seek personal advice in this regard.

SMSF Structure

Handling Complex SMSF Structures

Here at Wardle Partners, we can handle small to very complex SMSF structures. Our dedicated team of senior accountants have been helping clients for many years and love dealing with the challenges that larger SMSF can sometimes present.

Estate Planning

Estate Planning

Estate Planning is much more than simply having an up-to-date Will – superannuation is an important component (sometimes the biggest) and we work closely with your lawyer to make sure your SMSF assets are well planned for and in a tax-effective manner.

Tax Planning

Tax Planning

There are numerous tax planning opportunities associated with SMSF’s, such as making concessional contributions and your business renting a commercial property from your SMSF.  *It is important to get personalised advice from a qualified advisor, tailored to your specific circumstances.

Pension Establishment

Pension Establishment and Reporting

Generally, at retirement (subject to age) you can start to access your money in your SMSF to live off in the form of a pension.  There are tax advantages with this as well and our experienced team at Wardle Partners will take care of all the paperwork and reporting for you.

Lump Sum Withdrawals

Lump-Sump Withdrawals

Taking a Lump-Sum withdrawal is an option if you have reached your preservation age or met a condition of release. We can manage all the paperwork requirements and administrative processes involved in your withdrawal.

Death Benefit

Death Benefit Payments

Death benefits need to be paid out in accordance with the wishes of the deceased, which are generally documented in the form of Beneficiary Nominations or Binding Death Benefit Nominations.

Read more

Death benefits are paid to either beneficiaries or the deceased’s estate and there are various rules governing the payment and taxation of them.

As an SMSF trustee, you need to ensure that the payment rules are always met. Wardle Partners can help with the payment of death benefits from the SMSF.

BAS Preparation

BAS Preparation and Lodgement

It is common for an SMSF that owns a commercial property to be registered for GST.  Our team can prepare and lodge Business Activity Statements with the ATO. We will ensure that you meet the regulatory obligations and the required deadlines.

SMSF Windup

SMSF Windup

Winding up an SMSF can be a complex process, with all the paperwork and administration involved. Wardle Partners SMSF accountants can make it easy for you. We will ensure that you comply with all superannuation legal requirements and we will provide you with clear guidance on the steps you need to take to close your SMSF.

Lump Sum Withdrawals

Transfer Balance Account Reporting (TBAR)

Wardle Partner’s SMSF accountants provide you with accurate records and tracking of each individual’s balance for their transfer balance cap and total superannuation balance. In addition to the SMSF annual return (SAR), a transfer balance account report (TBAR) is required each year by the ATO and we ensure this is done seamlessly for you.
