Martin Heffron FTIA (Heffron Consulting) represented the Taxation Institute at the SCC meeting on Tuesday 16 June 2009. The SCC focuses on high level aspects of the ATO's administration of superannuation. In addition to general updates on the ATO’s “Illegal early release” strategy (including identity theft), the budget measures and reforms to the “income tests”, discussions focused in particular on:
- ‘Mistaken’ contributions;
- Lost Trust Deeds;
- SMSF Investment Performance Methodology;
- Trends in SMSF compliance; and
- CGT roll-over for merging superannuation funds.
