This article canvasses some topical issues and emerging practices relevant to the migration of wealth to and from self-managed superannuation funds under the Simplified Superannuation tax regime. In the authors’ experience, the tax policy shift from a regime that focussed on “exit” to one that now predominantly focuses on “entry” is having a significant impact on funding and transactions involving SMSFs, especially for high net worth taxpayers.
Lee settled in the Legislative Services branch of RevenueSA after stints with Ernst & Young and Thomsons Lawyers as a tax consultant and lawyer respectively. He is principally involved in taxpayer objections and appeals across all three of the major state tax heads and the development of policy by way of published circulars or rulings and the implementation of legislation and legislative amendments.
