SMSF specific advice

You can write to us for SMSF specific advice about how the super law applies, or will apply, to your particular circumstances. To get SMSF specific advice, you need to describe the facts of the investment or arrangement and ask for specific advice about how the super law applies.

You can ask about actions or investments your SMSF plans to take, or actions and investments your SMSF has already taken.

SMSF specific advice is not legally binding but it will provide a level of certainty to you as the trustee of your SMSF. If we later take the view that the law applies less favourably to your SMSF, the fact that you acted in accordance with your SMSF specific advice would be a relevant and important factor in your favour.

We can't provide SMSF specific advice about some topics.
