A Self-Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) is essentially a trust registered with the ATO to provide for the retirement of its members, and is taxed concessionally at 15 percent.
An SMSF tax return is lodged annually, and should contain full details of income, levies, contributions and other regulatory information.
This information is recorded and presented to the ATO as a legal requirement.

An SMSF must be audited by an approved SMSF auditor registered with ASIC.
