What SMSF ‘advice’ your accountant can give (and what is changing)

Since self-managed super funds came into existence accountants have been the number one source of advice when it comes to their set-up up and operation.  However the actual advice accountants have legally been allowed to give SMSF trustees has always been very limited, and from 1 July 2016 will get even tighter.

“If you don’t have international shares you are missing out on 98% of the world’s equity opportunities!”

Popular media often scolds trustees of SMSF’s for being too domestically focused and missing out on the opportunities that are available in international shares.
