A self managed super fund (SMSF) is a small superannuation trust that has the primary purpose of providing retirement benefits to the members, where the members themselves act as trustees. This means that the members control and run the super fund.
Generally, a self managed super fund is defined as a superannuation fund where there are less than five members, all the members are trustees, and no trustees receive any remuneration for their trustee services.
