Why should you update your Deed?
Laws are continually changing with ongoing reforms. An SMSF deed should be reviewed before implementing any major decision or strategy (e.g., commencing a pension, undertaking an SMSF borrowing arrangement, making substantial contributions, changing a pension, preparing a BDBN or undertaking estate planning). It is safer to rely on an express rather than a general provision.

Corporate Trustees of SMSFs
If you are upgrading an SMSF deed, you should also consider the advantages of a corporate trustee over individual trustees. The long-term benefits of a company generally outweigh the upfront cost of incorporation. Some of the main advantages include asset protection; flexibility to pay benefits as pensions or lump sums; and greater administrative ease. For more information click here.
DBA can assist in providing quality company documentation to establish corporate trustees of SMSFs (click here for more). We also provide documentation to change the trustee of an SMSF (click here for more) and can update the constitution of a company to provide our leading constitution with many advantages such as successor directors that are not offered by other suppliers (click here for more).
