Self managed super fund fees and costs

SMSF fees are an important consideration when determining whether an SMSF is right for you.

Grow SMSF provides competitive self managed super fund fees. Choose from some of the cheapest SMSF fees under our fixed fee packages or use our SMSF fee calculator to build a customised solution for your fund.

Our SMSF fees are fixed and transparent meaning there are no surprises at the end of the year when you receive an invoice for your SMSF accounting fees.

SMSF fees comparison

If you undertake an SMSF fees comparison you will see that Grow SMSF has very competitive fees for a full service SMSF administration and advice provider.

Esuperfund fees may be cheaper, however its a very different type of service that requires you as the SMSF trustee to undertake much of the ‘heavy lifting’ when it comes to processing SMSF transactions.  It may work well for fee conscious SMSF members who stick to very basic cash and ASX listed shares as their investments, however there are many hidden costs and additional time required when you scratch under the surface.

Esuperfund fees have increased steadily over the last fee years.  The is presumably because changes to laws as well as low interest rates have decreased the revenue and commission esuperfund can generate from other products (apart from SMSF administration).  It’s also worthwhile to remember that the esuperfund fees do no include the ebroking fees for share trades which are more than double compared to a low cost popular broker like SelfWealth.

Base – Other Inclusions

Our BASE solution includes the following additional features, some of which may incur additional add-on fees.

Term Deposits

If you are utilising term deposits for your SMSF, we include 2 simultaneous term deposits held direct with banks in our Base package.  If you want to hold more than 2 term deposits, you can use Australian Money Market or hold them through one our supported investment wrap platforms.  Alternatively an additional fee of $90 per term deposit per annum is levied to account for the additional work and documentation required to account for and audit the term deposits.

Pensions

The BASE solution can cater for SMSFs that have account-based pensions at an additional fee of $30/m (bringing the total annual fee to $1,980 per annum / $165/m).

This additional fee includes the tracking and management of pension accounts to calculate the minimum pension drawdown required, allocate pension payments between member accounts and interests in the most optimal method and ensuring you’ve take your minimum pension prior to 30 June each year.

Trustee Company Agent

Also included in our BASE fee is Grow SMSF acting as the registered ASIC agent for the trustee company of your fund.  We will send you the annual statement for your review each year, make any changes as necessary, and remind you to pay the annual registration fee (if you’ve not prepaid it for 10 years which is recommended).

Grow SMSF will not act as the physical registered office for your trustee company – it’s recommended you hold and control the physical company register / folder at your personal residence. Grow SMSF will maintain all company records in electronic format.

Activity Statements

Grow SMSF as your registered tax agent will lodge the business activity statements and instalment activity statements for your SMSF. Where your SMSF has to pay quarterly tax instalments (PAYG) by default we will change your payment frequency to an annual payment where your SMSF is eligible to pay PAYG instalments annually.

Flexi – Other Inclusions

Our FLEXI solution includes the following additional features, some of which may incur additional add-on fees.

Direct Property

Included with the Grow SMSF Flexi service is direct residential and commercial property investment. A single residential or commercial property (with or without an LRBA loan) is included in this fixed fee package.

Additional direct property investments are charged at $240 per annum or $360 per annum where a limited recourse borrowing is present.

Priority Annual Returns

Where your SMSF is in pension phase and eligible for a refund of franking credits, the scheduling of your SMSF annual return is prioritised under our FLEXI package.

This means we schedule and complete the SMSF accounts, annual return and independent audit across the months of July to November. Please be aware that all annual taxation statements MUST be issued prior to finalisation of an SMSF annual return.

Term Deposits

If you are utilising term deposits for your SMSF, we include 2 simultaneous term deposits held direct with banks in our Base package.  If you want to hold more than 2 term deposits, you can use Australian Money Market or hold them through one our supported investment wrap platforms.  Alternatively an additional fee of $90 per term deposit per annum is levied to account for the additional work and documentation required to account for and audit the term deposits.

Pensions

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to common questions about self managed super fund fees.
What are the average self managed super fund fees?

Based on the latest figures from the ATO the average self managed super fund fees are $3,934 per annum.

This is based on a median (mid-point) of operating expenses which an SMSF would incur including SMSF auditor fees, SMSF accounting fees, SMSF administration costs, ATO SMSF Supervisory Levy and other deductions relating to the annual running of an SMSF.

Most of these costs are SMSF accounting fees and SMSF audit fees. Learn more about the average SMSF fees here.

How is Grow SMSF different to cheaper online providers like esuperfund?

There are a number of differences if you were to compare Grow SMSF to many of the low cost online only service providers available.  We recommend anyone comparing SMSF service providers look at the following as part of their research:

  1. Service: We provide personalised phone and email support.  You are not forced to make all communication via an online portal. Our phone number (1300 651 263) is readily available during business hours (AEST). Check to see whether other providers have a phone number you can call to speak to a human.
  2. Transparency: Grow SMSF does not receive any commission or referral fees from any of the solution providers we work with including SelfWealth. Some other SMSF service providers receive commissions which increase the ongoing costs of using their preferred suppliers.  Check the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) of those providers to see how much they receive in commissions.
  3. Work Required from you: Some providers are not ‘full service’ SMSF administration providers – they could better be described as an online accounting system with an SMSF audit and lodgement function attached.  Grow SMSF does not require you to categorise or code any of your SMSF transactions yourself.

The above is not a comprehensive list. Take a look at our blog to find more specific information on comparing Grow SMSF to other service providers.

Learn more about our SMSF administration and accounting packages here.

Are SMSF fees tax deductible?

Yes.

SMSF fees and operating expenses that are incurred by an SMSF are mostly deductible under the general deduction provision (section 8-1 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (ITAA 1997)) except to the extent they relate to the gaining of non-assessable income (such as exempt current pension income) or are capital in nature.

Common fees that an SMSF can claim a tax deduction for include:

  • Management and administration fees
  • Audit fees
  • ASIC annual fee for a SMSF trustee company
  • Investment related expenses
  • The ATO annual supervisory levy
  • Legal expenses (where they are needed to comply with income tax obligations and NOT capital in nature)
  • Cost of amend a trust deed to keep it up to date with changes to the super laws

Typically the SMSF fees payable to Grow SMSF will be tax deductible.

What other SMSF fees are payable to the ATO and ASIC?

In addition to the fees quoted on this website, each SMSF has to pay statutory fees to the ATO and also ASIC each year.

The ATO charges a $259 annual SMSF supervisory levy which is paid when the SMSF pays its annual tax bill (or the amount comes off the tax refundable).

In addition, where an SMSF has a special purpose trustee company, it has to pay an annual company registration fee to ASIC.  For the 2020-21 financial year this annual fee is $55 and it’s indexed each year on the 1st of July.

Where an SMSF uses a company trustee it’s recommended the annual ASIC fee is paid for 10 years in advance.  The current cost of doing so is $383.  Paying these fees in advance both ensures costs are reduced and removes the possibility of incurring late fees for that 10 year period.

Do you have an SMSF fee calculator?

Yes!

Grow SMSF has built a customised SMSF fee calculator.

Our SMSF fee calculator enables you enter all the details of your fund including the types of accounts and investments and it will calculate your annual self managed super fund fees.

The SMSF fee calculator is useful as it can help identify areas where self managed super fund fees can be reduced and savings can be found.

With Grow SMSF self managed super fund fees can be determined both via our SMSF fee calculator our through one of our fixed fee administration packages.

How much does it cost to set up an SMSF?

The set up fees for a new SMSF are as follows:

  • $275 with individual trustees;
  • $990 with a company trustee

Grow SMSF intentionally DOES NOT offer ‘FREE’ SMSF establishment to ensure we provide you with the best possible upfront support and service you deserve.

Learn more about setting up an SMSF here: SMSF setup

How much does a SMSF audit cost?

The average SMSF audit cost based on the ATOs 2017-18 statistics is $550. This average SMSF audit fee has not changed in in a number of years, despite the ATO increasing scrutiny of SMSF auditors including reviewing their competence and independence.

As the size of an SMSF increases, the independent audit fees also increase.

All Grow SMSF fee packages INCLUDE the annual independent audit which is carried out by leading SMSF auditor ASF Audits.

Are self managed super funds worth it?

There are a number of different ways to look at this question.

If you look at it purely based on the SMSF fees, for many people, an SMSF may not be worthwhile unless the combined balance of all members (typically a couple) is at least $500,000.

The primary driver for most people to set up an SMSF is for control. An SMSF is the best way to have control over how your superannuation is invested as it provides maximum flexibility and transparency, especially over self managed super fund fees.

Lower cost SMSF administration opens SMSFs up to a greater number of people who want to take control of their superannuation investments.

When you use an industry or retail superannuation fund, built into their fees is both the administration cost as well as the investment management cost (although this can sometimes be difficult to see).  With an SMSF the administration costs are going to be higher, however if you are a self-direct investor your investment management costs are lower as you are replacing the professional fund manager with yourself.

So are self managed super funds worth it?  The answer comes down to whether how much value you put on control and transparency when it comes to how your super is invested.

Are SMSF establishment fees tax deductible?

No.

SMSF establishment fees are not tax deductible to either the members of the SMSF or the SMSF itself.  They are capital in nature and a tax deduction cannot be claimed regardless of who pays them.

The ATO has specifically said:

“We (being the ATO) consider formation costs (for example, cost of the trust deed to establish an SMSF) are of a capital nature regardless of who pays them. These are not deductible under tax law.

Also, unless the SMSF is conducting a business, there is no write-off under Business Related Costs of the Income Tax Act, and we consider the necessary business nexus is unlikely to be met because the primary purpose of a fund is to conduct it for retirement purposes rather than as a business.”

If a tax deduction is sought by the members, the fees in relation to the establishment of an SMSF may be claimed as a personal concessional where the member has paid the expense on behalf of the fund, not been re-imbursed and completes a notice of intent to claim form under s290-170 within the required time period.

Included with the Grow SMSF Flexi service is direct residential and commercial property investment. A single residential or commercial property (with or without an LRBA loan) is included in this fixed fee package.

Additional direct property investments are charged at $240 per annum or $360 per annum where a limited recourse borrowing is present.

Priority Annual Returns

Where your SMSF is in pension phase and eligible for a refund of franking credits, the scheduling of your SMSF annual return is prioritised under our FLEXI package.

This means we schedule and complete the SMSF accounts, annual return and independent audit across the months of July to November. Please be aware that all annual taxation statements MUST be issued prior to finalisation of an SMSF annual return.

Term Deposits

If you are utilising term deposits for your SMSF, we include 2 simultaneous term deposits held direct with banks in our Base package.  If you want to hold more than 2 term deposits, you can use Australian Money Market or hold them through one our supported investment wrap platforms.  Alternatively an additional fee of $90 per term deposit per annum is levied to account for the additional work and documentation required to account for and audit the term deposits.

Pensions

The FLEXI solution caters for SMSFs that have account-based pensions at no additional cost.

Trustee Company Agent

Also included in our FLEXI fee is Grow SMSF acting as the registered ASIC agent for the trustee company of your fund.  We will send you the annual statement for your review each year, make any changes as necessary, and remind you to pay the annual registration fee (if you’ve not prepaid it for 10 years which is recommended).

Grow SMSF will not act as the physical registered office for your trustee company – it’s recommended you hold and control the physical company register / folder at your personal residence. Grow SMSF will maintain all company records in electronic format.

Activity Statements

Grow SMSF as your registered tax agent will lodge the business activity statements and instalment activity statements for your SMSF. Where your SMSF has to pay quarterly tax instalments (PAYG) by default we will change your payment frequency to an annual payment where your SMSF is eligible to pay PAYG instalments annually.
