Cash, coins, crypto and collectables – not all money is created equal

If cash is King then surely crypto is the court jester because you never know what it’s going to do next!  Let’s assume that collectable notes and coins represent the past, cash represents the present and dare we say that crypto represents the future of SMSF currency investments, albeit that cash and crypto are likely to co-exist for the foreseeable future.   If you throw in precious metals then we are faced with a myriad of exchangeable assets with very different rules associated with the acquiring, holding, storing and recording requirements.  It can be a veritable minefield…or is that mined field?

This webinar will contemplate the various types of currency based assets that an SMSF can hold and how those asset must be held.  We will also delve in to the CGT implications of holding certain assets, the related party acquisitions rules and any other requirements that need to be considered when investing in non-standard assets, or standard assets depending on where you sit in the generational divide.
Learning Outcomes:
At the end of this webinar, participants will have an appreciation for:
  • The acquisition rules around collectable notes, coins and precious metals
  • Minimum Audit requirements for holding currency based investments
  • Which assets are subject to CGT and which are not
