Hi everyone. I am a total novice to super regulations in Aus so please excuse my questions if they don't make any sense. I am a 28 yo Australian citizen who needs to move overseas for an indefinite period of time (at least 10 years) due to family commitments. I am thinking of investing it in real estate there which is guaranteed to return more than just leaving it in a super fund here. Currently I have approx $45,000 in my super account and would like some suggestions for my questions below: 1) Can I legally withdraw my super to self manage and take it overseas? 2) If the answer to question 1 is 'No' then is there any other option that lets me to do so? 3) If I do get my super out by setting up a trust for example, can I then use the money for anything or do I need to show some proof of investment on an yearly basis? 4) Will I have to pay tax on the super if I withdraw it? I also have thought's of opening up a business to keep me occupied overseas so I would like to know if the rules are any different if I am investing my super into a company. I will be grateful for any suggestions on the above questions. Thanks in advance.
