Add Enduring Power of Attorney

Section 17A(3)(b)(ii) of the SIS Act provides that a Legal Personal Representative who holds an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) granted by the Member may become a trustee / director of a corporate trustee of the Fund in place of the Member and continue to be a Complying SMSF.  

These documents are specific to the Smarter SMSF deed that adopts the EPA as a Special Rule of the Fund and as a Paramount Document.  These documents can be created for the following circumstances:

  • a Member appoints an LPR due to residency issues (i.e. central management and control)
  • a Member is incapacitated and appoints LPR.

The following documents are created from this order:

  • Request to add Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) as a Special Rule (and Paramount Document)
  • Trustee minutes
  • Trustee notification adding EPA
  • Consent to Act 
  • Trustee Declaration
