Superannuation Rollover From Your SMSF

A superannuation rollover is when a member transfers some or all of their existing super between funds. This means a member can transfer superannuation benefits from their SMSF to another complying fund, even though they may not satisfy a ‘condition of release’. To help you navigate this along with super contributions, we have created this step-by-step superannuation rollover course. 

As shown in the diagram below, this course will ask you questions about SMSF Trust Deeds, whether you have provided a Rollover Benefits statement, if you need to do a SMSF wind up and more. It will also help you to ensure you’re complying with the Australian Taxation Office’s superannuation rollover rules and laws.

DISCLAIMER: The information on this website does not seek to provide personal advice specific to your needs or super account. It is intended only as a guide for illustrative purposes only. We encourage you to seek advice from an SMSF Specialist.

Superannuation rollover: tax consequences & preservation rules


No tax is generally payable on superannuation rollovers or transferred from one superannuation fund to another. The preservation components of a member’s rolled over benefit are maintained in the new fund, which means that the rolled over benefit can only be accessed once the member has met a condition of release.
