You are allowed to prepay 10 years of the annual ASIC fees for companies, whether it is a normal Pty Ltd as a trustee or a Special Purpose Company of a SMSF. Special Purpose Company pays $43/year or you can prepay 10 years for $324. Pty Ltd companies pays $230/year or you can prepay 10 years for $1728. 1. Considering that the annual fee goes up every year & prepaying for 10 years gets you a discount at today's rate, what are your thoughts on prepaying for 10 years? 2. Can the ASIC annual fee be paid by the trust for the Pty Ltd & the SMSF pay the ASIC fee for the Special Purpose Company? If so, would this be a deduction for the Trust & SMSF? What about if one company was a trustee of 3 trusts?
