    New SMSF Dummies beware

    By Peter

    from Latrobe Valley Au

    About Me Casual Reader

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Deserves Multiple Readings
    • Informative

    Cons

    • Don't rely on this alone
    • Not for SMSF newbys

    Best Uses

    • Reference
    • Use to gather information

    Comments about DIY Super for Dummies Second Australian Edition:

    This book should be read in conjunction with other SMSF material.
    It does make the setting up of a SMSF appear to be daunting and not for inexperienced people - you wouldn't buy this if you were experienced.
    Use SMSF companys and Stockbrokers for your initial setting up until you become a bit more experienced.
