The ATO is the regulator of self-managed super funds (SMSFs). A key element of our role is to collect and publish data about the health and performance of the SMSF sector.
This annual overview provides key statistics and analysis of Australia's SMSF sector for the 2017–18 financial year.
To meet the needs of an increasingly sophisticated SMSF sector, this year we have provided more detailed data on SMSF expenses, including new and updated tables. This required some minor terminology updates to better describe the categories of expense data (tables 25, 26 and 27).
