Wealth migration to and from SMSFs


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.
