Expat Super Guide


One of the most common questions asked by Australian expats is what do I do with my superannuation in Australia now that I’m an Aussie expat? Just because you have moved overseas is no reason why you should stop caring about your Australian superannuation account.

For most this account may be one of your largest assets when it comes to retirement and the little things done early will give you the biggest gains when it comes time to retire.

The Australian expat superannuation guide is designed to educate you about the pro’s and con’s of managing your superannuation when you move overseas.

In the Australian Expat Superannuation Guide we cover off on the following topics and many more


  • What about employer contributions? Is my employer obliged to pay the superannuation guarantee whilst i’m an Australian expat?
  • Australian Expat Self Managed Superannuation Funds – What are the do’s and don’ts when managing a SMSF as a Australian expat?
  • Making super contributions as an Australian expat – Should you continue to make personal contributions to your superannuation whilst you’re an Australian expat?
  • Transferring Superannuation – What are my options to transfer my superannuation both into and out of Australia?
  • Managing Superannuation as an Australian Expat in the USA – what do you need to know about the US regulations that may affect your Australian expat superannuation and how may it affect your US tax return
