SMSF Acquiring Property With Stamp Duty Concession

The following States offer concessional duty on transfers of business real property from a member into their SMSF:  NSW (s62A), WA (s122), and VIC (s41).  Transfers of property (owned in the personal name/s of members of a super fund) into the fund will attract only nominal duty provided that each member’s interest in the property is quarantined strictly only for the benefit of that member inside the fund and all other requirements of the relevant Duties Act are met.

SMSF Gearing Unwinding Eform

Once a super fund's limited recourse loan is repaid the fund's interest in the bare (holding) trust becomes a non-exceptional in-house asset.  Assuming that it is not possible for the fund to retain an interest in the bare trust under the in-house asset rules, it will be necessary to wind up the bare trust as quickly as possible.
