  • a streamlined solution;
  • you will receive a full set of documents from 2 products;

This product will register a company which is set up only to be the trustee of a superannuation fund — it is not allowed to do anything else. If you wish for the company to be able to do other things, you should use the Company Registration document package.

You can read about setting up an SMSF Trust through Cleardocs on the Superannuation Trust (SMSF) product page.

You can read about registering a proprietary limited company through Cleardocs on the Company Registration product page.

When using Cleardocs to set up an SMSF on behalf of your client, you can start an application for a cash management account (CMA) with Macquarie Bank or NAB.To start an application, you order a Superannuation Trust (SMSF) document package and then on the interface, answer "Yes" to the question: "Do you want to start an application for a cash management account (CMA)?"

The Cleardocs system then:

  • uses the information you entered on the interface to partially complete your client's CMA application; and
  • submits the application to Macquarie electronically (if relevant); or
  • provides you with instructions on how to lodge your NAB application (if relevant).

The relevant bank will then contact you directly about your application.
