For each SMSF you would like us to administer – whether it be a new SMSF we establish or an existing SMSF being transferred – there are some key documents you need to provide your clients.
It is recommended that you download copies of the documents below and put together your own ‘SMSF client on-boarding pack’ your clients can sign when they accept your recommendation to use Superfund Wholesale for their SMSF. Most of these documents can be easily customised and branded to match your business.
These documents can (and should) be completed and signed by your clients prior to submitting a SMSF Transfer form or at the same time as they sign their SMSF establishment documents.
SMSFs that hold direct property investments - especially those utilising Limited Recourse Borrowings - have significantly different (and increased) establishment and ongoing administration requirements.
This Guide contains links to a number of important forms, documents and checklists you can use to make the initial and ongoing administration of your SMSF property clients significantly easier.

Where Superfund Wholesale performs the administration of an SMSF, the trustees need to sign a Service Agreement confirming our appointment.
