Why our Trust Deeds are better?

Which Trust Deed is better?


To know which SMSF trust deed is suitable to your (or client’s) need or which deed is better can be a daunting task. Even to find out what are the criteria to measure or differentiate a good trust deed from a bad one can be difficult, you have no alternative but to compare the contents of two trust deeds and correct verdict can only be given only if you possess expert knowledge of SIS Act and legislation.

Some Myths about Trust Deeds


There are many myths about SMSF Trust Deeds, such as:

  • Price - $495 Trust Deed should be better than $125 (our price);
  • 30 page Trust Deed is better then 77 pages (ours);
  • All Trust Deeds from different suppliers are same;
  • All solicitors who write these deeds have same or similar set of skills or all solicitors know what they doing;
  • A Trust deed bound in an expensive folder should be better;
  • Since the deed supplier is selling to many accountants, the deed must be good or good enough for me (or my clients);
  • ATO (or auditor) has never asked me a for a trust deed – who cares about it’s quality!
  • Do I really need to update my (or client’s) SMSF trust deeds or I will simply prepare minutes for each client to read “what ever changes are in the SIS Act applies to this Deed” this will ensure that my (or client’s) deed complies to current SIS legislation & Regulations;
  • It is better to use the same supplier for companies and SMSF deed without actually reading the deed I am buying for my clients.

Why a Quality SMSF Trust Deed is important?

Order Now

If Self Managed Superannuation one of the biggest assets for you or your clients, then it is of paramount importance that you have a rock solid Trust Deed to ensure that it complies to SIS legislation and regulations. Further, the deed should be flexible enough for you to implement various strategies available in the market place at all times.

We are asked many times, by users, such as accountants, financial planners etc, why they should purchase our trust deed instead of other shelf company or Instant legal document providers.

The list below is prepared to compare our product with others. This list is not judgmental on other SMSF deeds, however is prepared to assist new users to quickly differentiate our product.

Our SMSF Trust Deeds are better because


  • clearly states (descriptive) what the trustees can or cannot do – instead of leaving it to the trustees or their advisors to search answers from superannuation law (prescriptive); The difference between a descriptive and prescriptive deed is given below.
  • has 215 clauses; to ensure that all available SMSF strategies are included in the deed, this perhaps explains why our deed is set out in 77 pages, single line, 10 size font;
  • is suitable for practical situations and gives clues to advisor of strategies which they can implement for their clients;
  • can be kept always up to date, when you choose our unique $165 five year unlimited update option;
  • has no mistakes in it - we have seen many SMSF deeds which have incorrect statements and are not current as the writer (solicitor) does not possess expert knowledge of SIS Act & Regulations or has not updated their trust deed as and when the law changes.

Difference between Descriptive & Prescriptive Trust Deed

Order Now

Our trust deeds provide instant answers to most common questions on day to day running of a SMSF instead of referring common issues to the SIS Act, thus providing instant reference for research on SMSF strategies to maximize wealth at retirement.

You will find that most SMSF trust deeds in the market place are prescriptive. What this means for you is that, various clauses of the deed will state “refer to or .....as per Superannuation law” and not give you an instant answer to your query.

To explain this further, let us look at a question:
How much can a 65 + year old contribute to superannuation, concessional and non-concessional and what are the conditions of contributions?

Please try to find the answer to the above question in your trust deed.

If you have updated your trust deed from another provider, the deed may say “member can contribute whatever the trustee agrees to or whatever amount the member decides or not more than what Superannuation law permits …..”

The above statement is prescriptive and if you are a trustee or an advisor, time is important to you, you sometimes want an instant answer to your question. In reading the above clause, you do not get an instant answer to your question, to find the correct answer, you now may have to look at the Income Tax Act or the SIS Act which could take you hours.

If you have an old trust deed, and have not updated since May 2006, you are worse off, as the deed may state that “you have to compulsory commence a pension, once you have reached the age of 65 years..…”. However, compulsory cashing is no longer an applicable rule, as the SIS Act was amended to remove this rule.

Please note that trustees must at all times follow their trust deed. Hence, if you have not updated your trust deed and are over 65 years and not commenced a pension, you have contravened your trust deed and your auditor must report this contravention to ATO.

Now consider the two below clauses from our trust deed ….

Clause 50 : Trustees must accept contributions consistently with the terms of the SIS Act and SIS Regulations, as are listed in regulation 7.04, and in particular the table in regulation 7.04 (1) of the SIS Regulations and in accordance with conditions of regulations 7.04 (2), (3), (4) and (6) of the SIS Regulations.

Clause 62: A member of the fund may request the trustee to refuse to accept from a member, member’s spouse or employer or another person a higher non-concessional contribution than non-concessional contribution cap made on behalf of a member. Trustees may from 1 July 2007 refund any non-concessional contribution which they have received on behalf of a member in excess of:

  • $150,000;
  • $450,000, if the member is under the age of 65 years, if the non-concessional contribution is to bring forward 2 years of non-concessional contributions;
  • $150,000 from a member over 65 years old provided they are gainfully employed; and
  • nil, if the member is over 75 years old.
    From 1 July 2007, Government co-contributions will not be counted towards the non-concessional contributions cap.

You may like our above two clauses for two reasons.

Firstly we give you the exact place in the SIS Act to look for current information you are seeking and secondly, we give you a brief of the current act and since we constantly update our trust deed, the information on our deed is always current and correct.

The difference is that our trust deed is descriptive; we have over 70 such instances in our trust deed, which you will rarely find in any other trust deeds.

The reason why our trust deed is drafted in this manner is simple; it is drafted with input from tax practitioners, who understand your day to day issues in smooth running of your super fund and not only by solicitors who have theoretical knowledge and have never prepared a set of accounts for a SMSF or have no experience in dealing with cold face real life situations in advising clients directly.
