The Story

Securing a self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) commercial investment loan is a rigorous process that is often scrutinised for its length and complexity. It requires SMSF trustees to provide financial statements, tax returns, independent audit results, among other documents.

The effort may seem unbearable for some; however, our brokers are positioned well to make this lengthy process a short and simple experience.

Meet The Customers

Ron has been the director of an accounting firm for over 10 years and also serves as an accountant there. Becky, having worked in an admin role in Ron’s firm previously, is now a midwife. Together they intend to purchase a commercial investment property with an SMSF loan and rent it to Ron’s firm.

Ron’s accounting firm has a strong financial position, with turnover increasing from 2019 to 2020. This puts Ron and Becky in prime position to secure an SMSF loan.

The Challenges

The priority for Ron and Becky was to keep the securing of the SMSF loan as simple and short as possible.
