Our Fees

All fees quoted are inclusive of GST and apply where you utilise SuperGuardian for the ongoing administration of your SMSF.

SMSF Establishment

Individual Trustees $500
Corporate Trustee $1,280*

*Includes SMSF establishment and company incorporation.

Ongoing Fees

All new funds will be charged at the lowest fee category for the first financial year in monthly debits, with the balance of the annual figures debited by 30 June. The full annual fee is payable irrespective of which month you establish your fund. All fees are payable for a full year, whether administered for a full year or part thereof.

Thereafter, the annual fee is reviewed and calculated each year based on the number of assets as at 30 June. It is not based on the number of transactions, we simply review the number of assets held at the commencement of each financial year to determine the fee category.

Fee categories are reviewed annually in June.
