An SMSF needs its own bank account. We provide access to the Macquarie Cash Management Account (CMA) for the following reasons:
Keeping your SMSF money separate from your personal money is essential when you have an SMSF. Because most people don’t use Macquarie for their everyday personal banking, using Macquarie helps ensure no costly mistakes.
It is important to note that it is not compulsory to use the Macquarie CMA to use the services of Grow SMSF. We will only provide you with information on the Macquarie CMA and assist you with the administrative aspects of setting up the account based on your instruction. Please refer to our Advice Disclaimer for further information.
