This paper covers the hot topics and uses case studies to explain the tips and traps including:
- SMSF borrowing – the current state of play on the regulatory and the taxation (both Federal and State) treatment including CGT, GST and regulatory issues
- managing contributions and the contribution caps, and how reserving interplays with these. Excess contributions can result in 93% tax! What to do if an excess arises and how to ensure appropriate strategies are adopted
- pension planning – getting the most out of your pension is what it’s all about. What strategies now work, when to do and not do pensions, and is there still CGT on cashing out a pension on death?
- succession to super especially SMSFs is going to be big business in the years ahead. Many SMSFs and their members are hopelessly exposed to their super ending up in the wrong hands at the wrong time.
