The SMSF Residency Minefield

The issues, solutions & the safe harbour

Friday, 21 February 2020

Register Individual

Identifying when there is an issue
The options to manage impending and existing residency issues
Effective use of the safe harbour rules

The residency, compliance and tax rules for SMSFs are all directly linked. When it comes to managing residency, strict timeframes and processes must be adhered to avoid the fund being deemed non-compliant and stripping close to 50% of its value.

If you have an SMSF client with a member looking to move overseas (or who already has), then there are certain steps that need to be put in place. This webinar is designed to take you through what you absolutely must do and the implications of different actions.

We help you identify when there is an issue, what options exist for managing impending or existing issues, and how to effectively utilise the safe harbour.

This webinar is best for all accountants and advisers working with SMSF clients – this is really something everyone working with SMSF clients needs to know.
