Establishing a Trust
We will work with you to determine the correct SMSF structure for your circumstances, prepare the trust deed (a foundational legal document for your SMSF), facilitate the appointment of trustees and obtain a trust identification number.
At Walsh Accountants we handle the paperwork for obtaining your SMSF’s Australian Business Number (ABN) and Tax File Number (TFN). Our accountants ensure compliance with ATO regulations, setting a solid foundation for your fund.
