SMSFs - investing in property

Author(s):  Richard J FRIEND

Everyone knows that there are lots of tax advantages in maximising your contributions into superannuation. But that is only half the story. What do you do with the money once it is in there? A balanced share portfolio is always a good start. But a balanced share portfolio is just that - balanced...and boring. And many people with SMSFs do not feel comfortable with shares. But most Australians are comfortable with property (rightly or wrongly). Yet it is not easy to use a super fund to invest in property - or is it? This paper goes through some of the "tips and traps" for SMSFs when investing in property. Topics covered include:

  • SIS and tax issues for SMSFs investing in property
  • using geared trusts to invest in property
  • making the most of grandfathered unit trusts
  • when is leverage not borrowing?
