So what is a super self-managed fund?

A pension fund will be an SMSF if it has the following features:

1. It has no more than four members.

2. Unless they are related, no member of the fund may be an employee of another member of the fund,

3. Each member is also a trustee, and no trustee may receive no remuneration for their services as a trustee, or;

4. If the fund uses a company to act as the trustee, each member of the fund must be a director of this company, and the company does not receive compensation for its services as trustee. No director of the company may receive remuneration for their services as a director about the fund.

Employees can not be in the same self-directed retirement funds as a member of the employer unless they are related. It is possible to have self-directed retirement funds with one member, however, there are some additional rules around this.
