Simplify the complex Related Party Rules
Reduce ATO risk: how to use the rules correctly, who actually gets caught & why?
Working with the rules in real life

The in-house asset rules can be complex and the risks high.

COVID-19 has increased the risk of problems arising and the Commissioner's approach to in-house assets is not 'carte blanche.'

The SMSF Related Parties & In-House Assets Webinar identifies the issues and breaks down the complexity, stepping through the processes and procedures in practice (including Part 8 Associates). 

The closely held nature of many SMSFs often results in transactions being carried out with the fund's related parties. In many cases, these transactions create in-house asset issues.

While in-house assets make up a relatively small portion of overall SMSF assets, it's an area under intensive scrutiny by the regulator. Unsurprisingly, in-house assets are the highest value reported contravention in dollar terms and the second most reported contravention in the last 10 years. 

In practice, failure to comply with the in-house asset rules can result in clients being placed at high risk and the fund being forced to sell assets. This essential webinar helps reduce those risks.
