The many faces of SMSF property development

SMSFs can undertake property development, it’s just a matter of how.  In 2020 the ATO released ‘SMSFRB 2020/1 SMSF Regulator’s Bulletin – Self-managed superannuation funds and property development’ which outlined their concerns with undertaking such a transaction.  With the industry microscope regularly being placed on fund expenses, trustee remuneration, LRBAs and investments in related entities there are so many factors to consider when considering property development.

In this webinar we will take the compliance torch to developing a property in an SMSF and identify the good the bad and the ugly when contemplating the parties to any arrangement as well as the transaction tips, trips and traps.  Without limiting our imagination we will consider the following:

  • Who is involved in the transaction – understanding Part 8 Associates
  • How non-arm’s length income changes will impact property development
  • Carrying on a business in an SMSF

Learning Outcomes:

At the end of webinar attendees will:
  • Understand who is a related party in connection with a property development
  • Identify the key legislative provisions that apply to property development for SMSFs
  • Distinguish between transactions that are allowable from those that are not
