Other Costs


Other potential fees that may be payable by your SMSF are:

  • Fees paid for advice – investment and/or strategic.
  • Brokerage fees for share trades
  • Application fees for other investment placement

 Pension Fees - On Commencement and Potentially Ongoing

Fees will be incurred on commencement of a pension within your SMSF, as this change must be documented by minutes etc. The start of a pension may also require your fund to obtain an actuarial certificate. Depending on the fund’s membership and circumstances, an actuarial certificate may be required annually.

 Ongoing Costs


Annual Administration Fees


  • From $1760 (incl GST)
  • Typical Fee is $2200 - $2530 (incl GST)

 Our fees are not based on a percentage of fund assets. However we do vary our annual administration fees based on 3 factors – volume of activity, number of assets held and complexity of transactions. So, if you have a fairly stable asset base, you will not incur the same level of fees that a fund that conducts a large volume of share trades and/or holds many and varied assets that are complex to deal with.

I would recommend contacting our office and we can advise you of the relevant administration fee for your fund.

See Our Services – Administration to see what is included in our fees.

 Audit Fees

 A SMSF is required annually to prepare audited accounts to report to fund members. The fund is also required to lodge a Fund Income Tax and Regulatory Return with the tax office each year. The amount of the audit fee varies, depending on the volume and complexity of the fund transactions. A typical audit fee would range from $330 to $660, but could be higher depending on the fund circumstances, i.e. fund assets, complexity etc.


ATO Supervisory Levy

 The ATO requires a Supervisory levy to be paid annually on lodgement of the Fund Income Tax and Regulatory Return. Currently this fee is $200.00.


Fee Types


Fees for a SMSF can be divided into:


  • initial set-up costs,
  • ongoing costs, and
  • irregular costs.
