SMSF – Trustee Type

The table below is compiled from the Australian Taxation Office statistics. It basically summarises the set-up structure of SMSF (Self-Managed Super Fund). The statistical data refer to number of new registrations.

An SMSF could either have individuals or company as trustee for the fund. There is not really any extra asset protection by going with a corporate trustee. However, where there is only one trustee, the corporate trustee might be the way to go.
