Property investments in an SMSF

Whether it’s interest rates, rental occupancy or market demands, property is always a hot topic.  From an SMSF investment point of view property has always been a popular investment sitting in the top 3 asset classes with listed securities and cash and term deposits. Based on 30 June 2020 ATO statistics, property represented about 20% of all SMSF investment, whether held outright or via a limited recourse borrowing arrangement, but if you then factor in property held via managed investments and unit trusts it would likely rival listed shares as the number one investment class.   Property investments attract a lot of attention, so they require a lot of attention.


In this webinar we will identify the various ways property can be held in an SMSF as well as any potential issues associated with the choices made having regard for both commercial and residential property.  We will also contemplate the ongoing administration, taxation and property management issues that need to be considered as well as the inevitable liquidity issues property can present. 


Leaning Outcomes:


At the end of this webinar, participants will have an appreciation for:

– The key distinctions between investing in property held directly versus investing in an entity that invests in property  

-Who should be undertaking improvements, maintenance and repairs of a property

-The taxation considerations of holding property in an SMSF

-Strategies that contemplate property and estate planning
