Complex SMSF related party rules put simply (inc Part 8 Associate rules) Avoid ATO scrutiny: how to use the rules correctly, who actually gets caught & why? Removing the risk of non-arm's length income

The closely held nature of 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 that is high on the ATO's list of reported contraventions resulting in increased regulatory scrutiny. Unsurprisingly, in-house assets are listed as the second most reported contravention to the ATO in the last 10 years. They also represent the highest value in dollar terms for SMSF reported contraventions over this same period!

The level of regulatory scrutiny and inconsistent reporting by SMSF auditors can be linked to the complex nature of the related party rules. And in practice, failure to comply with these in-house asset rules can result in clients being placed at high risk and the fund being forced to sell the assets. This webinar breaks down the complexity of the in-house asset rules and how they should be correctly applied.
