DIY Super For Dummies 2nd Australian Edition (Wiley, $29.95) is a plain-English and practical resource for anyone running their own fund, or considering running their own fund. DIY super is a specialist area within the super sector because it is a microcosm of the entire sector — involving fund administration, compliance, investment management, tax management and retirement planning. Running your own fund can be an exhilarating ride but the twists and turns that you encounter along the way — for example, the Global Financial Crisis during 2008 and 2009, and the volatile investment markets of 2010, 2011 and 2012 — can sometimes be a challenge.
DIY Super For Dummies 2nd Australian Edition can help you run your DIY super fund, or help you decide whether a DIY super fund is suitable for you. And if it is, this book can then take you through the steps you need to take to set up a DIY super fund, how to run a DIY super fund, what you need to do to pay a super pension from your fund, the costs of running a DIY super fund, and where to go for help.
DIY Super For Dummies 2nd Australian Edition is a product of the most common questions and answers that Trish Power has been asked about DIY super, reinforced by a plain-English explanation of the super rules applying to DIY super funds. This book is a companion resource to SuperGuide.com.au covering everything (nearly!) you need to know about running your own fund, written specifically for DIY super fund trustees, or prospective trustees.
