SMSF administration

Trustees can choose to outsource some of the administrative tasks or if they have the skills and experience they can do it almost everything themselves - only the SMSF audit each year MUST be outsourced.

However, trustees are ultimately responsible for the operation of their SMSF so even if you choose to outsource the financial decision making you can't blame your financial planner.
