Do I need to transfer all of my portfolio to BT SMSF?

No. You can simply make your next investment move with BT SMSF or, when you’re ready, we can help you in specie transfer over your existing SMSF holdings to get the full picture of your portfolio. The choice is up to you.

I already have a bank account, why do I need another?

At the heart of BT SMSF is your Panorama Investments account which includes an integrated BT Cash Management Account (BT CMA). All of your Panorama investment transactions - including when you buy, sell or receive dividends - will be transacted through your BT CMA. Your fees will also be deducted from your BT CMA.

You can still keep any other bank or cash accounts you have for your SMSF. However it’s good to know that the more you use the BT CMA for all your day-to-day SMSF transactions, the more you’ll get out of the smart tools and reports to help you track contributions, pensions, upcoming income and dividends.

Do I need to start a new SMSF with BT?

No, you don’t need to start a new SMSF.

BT SMSF is an investment platform and optional tax and audit service that can help support the SMSF you already have.

What if I already have an adviser or accountant?

BT SMSF is designed for self-directed investors who do not have an adviser. Although we can put you in touch with an adviser whenever you need expert help.

If you have an accountant, you can choose to give your accountant view only access to your BT Panorama account so they can see your portfolio, transactions, reports and documents. This will make tax time easier for everyone.

If you have an adviser, we recommend you speak to your adviser to discuss if BT Panorama may be right for you. Your adviser can help you open your account and manage your portfolio.
