  • Why your SMSF trust deed should be up to date?

    Super legislation governs the rules and regulations for SMSFs, the fund deed is a critical competent to ensure that the fund is managed in accordance with current law.

    Deeds were generally recommended to be updated on three previous occasions:

    1999: ‘Excluded Funds’ became ‘Self-Managed Super Funds’, preservation & in-house assets

    2007: ‘Simpler Super’ contribution & retirement rules

    2017: Legislation passed in 2016, retirement phase and transfer balance cap

    2021: To Allow 6 member funds and other indexation measures

    It is wrong to assume that Superannuation law regulates how a superannuation fund must operate, this role is of the Governing Rules of the fund which prescribes superannuation law to the fund. There are many areas of law such as the SIS Act, SIS Regulations, ATO decisions, Case law & common strategies which change after fund establishment and warrant the trust deed of the fund to be updated.

    SMSF Trust Deeds should be up to date to ensure trustees have powers to benefit from all legislative changes. It is a myth that deeming clause in a deed which proclaims any change in law is automatically to be included in the deed, trustees must note that any relevant power or authority of the trustee must be conferred to them by its governing rules. You need a living and breathing trust deed.

    To be sure that the fund governing rules have all the necessary powers to administer the fund and to assure auditors that all actions taken by the trustee are supported by the funds trust deed, trustees must ensure that their fund's trust deed is always compliant with current legislation to avoid any administrative penalties.
