Managing Your Future Wealth

Today, there are more than 1 million Australians who have decided to take charge of their super and are running a Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF). Representing a combined asset value in excess of $550 billion, it's the biggest single pool of assets inside the Australian superannuation system: larger than both industry and retail funds.

How you manage your super today will have a significant impact on the choices you have in retirement, which is why SMSFs are rapidly becoming the vehicle of choice for investors who want greater control of their retirement savings.


With an SMSF you can:

  • Take control of your super

  • Access a wider range of investment options, including direct property

  • Enjoy flexibility to implement effective tax strategies

  • Instigate estate planning

  • Pool family assets


Setting up an SMSF

We’re experienced at setting up SMSFs, so we’ll make the process as easy as possible for you. We deal with all the paperwork, liaise with the legislative bodies so your SMSF can commence right away. You’ll need to sign documents along the way and make some decisions, but we can take care of the details.


Borrowing in your SMSF

We're specialists in Limited Recourse Borrowing Arrangements (LRBAs) that are required for SMSFs to purchase residential and commercial property inside your fund. Talk to us about the property purchase you might be considering. 


SMSF administration support

We’ll support you in the administration of your fund by:

  • Establishing SMSF structures

  • Corresponding with the ATO on various issues

  • Preparing trustees’ minutes in relation to certain events

  • Preparing year-end financial statements for your SMSF

  • Preparing and lodging the fund’s annual income tax and regulatory return

  • Preparing an annual actuarial certificate

  • Coordinating the annual independent audit of your SMSF.


SMSF administration and support shouldn't be complicated and with our guidance and advice it doesn't have to be. 

Borrowing in a Self Managed Superannuation Fund


WD Nicholls Makes SMSF Lending Easy

You already know a Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) provides you with control, flexibility and choice.  You get to decide where and when you invest the assets of your Fund. It also allows you the option for borrowing for direct investment in property through SMSF Lending with a Limited Recourse Borrowing Arrangement (LRBA).

With Australia's preference for real estate, it's not surprising that the number of people using their SMSF to invest directly in commercial and residential property is growing steadily. Direct investment in real property now accounts for around $80 billion or 15% of the total assets invested in SMSFs.

Northern Rivers and Gold Coast Lending Specialists in SMSF Lending Arrangements


While there are clear guidelines about what your Fund can do and can't do, borrowing to invest within your SMSF follows similar fundamental principles as borrowing to invest outside your fund.

Some of the key benefits of borrowing within an SMSF to invest in property are:

  • Increased Purchasing Power

  • Loan Repayments

  • Asset Protection

  • Tax Concessions

We can assist you with finance from a range of lenders that will suit you and your fund's circumstances and you'll benefit from dealing with qualified SMSF lending consultants who liaise directly with a specialist SMSF accounting firm.  

  • Borrow 70% of property value

  • Cover repayments with rental income

  • Flexible structure

  • Fixed and variable rate options

  • Interest only available
