Generate documents to partially commute an Account Based Pension (ABP) in accordance with the Commissioner’s guidance in TR 2013/5 and SMSFD 2013/2.

The partial commutation allows you to elect under Reg. 995.1.03 of the ITAR 1997 to not treat the amount as an income stream payment (but rather lump sum), along with the ability to have the benefit payment paid in cash or as an in-specie asset transfer.

The following documents will be generated as part of the completed order:
– Member request for partial commutation
– Trustee minutes regarding partial commutation
– Trustee notification of partial commutation

Sample documents are available to view within the knowledge base. You can save this order to resume at any time and can review prior to submission.

What can I call the new SMSF?

Anything you like, as a super fund doesn’t need a name under the common law; no trust does. A trust is not a legal entity, it is a relationship. It is one entity (trustee) holding an asset for the benefit of another entity (beneficiary).

We’ve seen some clever and funny names along the way including Spendid the Kid’s Inheritance Super Fund, MoneyTree Super Fund, Rolling Rich Super Fund, and the Super Duper Super Fund.

Typically, however we see most people taken a practical approach to naming conventions linking back to a family name – e.g. John & Jane Citizen may call their SMSF – Citizen SMSF, Citizen Super Fund, Citizen Family Super Fund, Citizen Retirement Fund – just to name a few…

Importantly, it would be unwise to choose a name that:

  • is obscene
  • is seditious
  • is defamatory
  • suggests connection with royalty or government
  • is misleading or deceptive, or
  • is the same as an unrelated commercial enterprise.

From a practical point of view perhaps it might be best to:

  • use a short name
  • don’t bother with ‘The’
  • use ‘Super’ in preference to ‘Superannuation’
  • not use a name that readily identifies the members or connection with the member’s business.

Does it matter if there is another SMSF with the same name?

No, again you have complete flexibility in calling the super fund whatever you want.

The distinguishing feature between different SMSFs with the same name is the fund’s ABN, which each is super fund is required to register for.  You can search up a list of super fund names through the ATO’s superfundlookup.gov.au
