Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSFs)

If you’re among the 1.1 million Australians who’ve opted to take control of their super, our strategic, up-to-the-minute advice and flawless tax management can help you get the best from your fund.

Integrated expertise, increased returns

Your MTT accountant partners with a highly skilled, switched-on financial advisor from More Than Wealth. The result?

  • Setting up your SMSF

  • Preparing annual financial accounts, and tax and regulatory returns

  • Advising you on pension strategies, tax benefits and compliance 

  • Taking care of the plethora of ongoing SMSF documentation

Succession planning

Succession planning can be delicate and confronting. We offer skilful, empathetic help to protect and pass on your assets as you wish. 

Handing over your business by ‘design’ – when you retire, or ‘accident’ - because of illness or injury can be challenging. A clear, current succession plan that’s legally endorsed and widely accepted can make transitions immeasurably easier. 

We can help reduce the stress of succession by:

  • Advising on the most tax-effective timing and methods for asset transfers 

  • Collaborating with lawyers and other professionals required to certify wills and power of attorney and establish testamentary trusts

  • Updating your plan in response to changes in your circumstances or the tax laws


Aside from smoothing business transitions, we’ll also support your comfortable retirement by setting up and sustaining a profitable Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF). 

Meet your Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) obligations and maintain excellent corporate governance. 

MTT can: 

  • Lodge new business name registrations with ASIC

  • Incorporate companies and trusts and maintain registers

  • Maintain your ASIC records 

  • Support your board by preparing director and shareholder minutes

  • Set up and maintain secure, accessible cloud-based document control

  • Schedule and send SMS reminders to keep everyone informed
