Complexity arises when the related party tenant wishes to make changes or improvements to the property.
Does the installation of a fit out contravene the prohibition against related party acquisitions? Do any improvements give rise to a new asset for SMSF borrowing purposes? Does the value of the fit out count as a contribution?
