Webinar – SMSF Benefit Payments – Tips and Traps

Recent ATO statistics highlight that more and more SMSF trustees are being disqualified for illegal early access of their superannuation benefits.  Whilst the overwhelming majority of trustees and members do the right thing when it comes to withdrawing super, there are plenty of things to consider to ensure the SMSF and/or the members don’t fall foul of the rules.
In this webinar, Tim Miller from Smarter SMSF will delve into the rules around accessing super and will take a deeper dive into the options that avail themselves to trustees when paying a benefit.  Amongst other items, the webinar will cover:  
·  In-specie benefit payments
·  Commutations versus pension payments
·  Drawing from accumulation v pension interests
·  Member benefits v death benefits
·  Taxation of benefit payments
·  What happens when it goes wrong
Learning outcomes:

At the end of this webinar, participants will have an appreciation for:
·  the different types of benefit payments available to SMSFs.
·  how the nature of the benefit payment can impact the timing and treatment
·  the taxation implications of accessing super both legally and illegally
