Chris Levy joins Luke on 2CC

Financial Planner Luke Smith joined 2CC Talking Canberra 1206AM in The Money Show which aired on Friday 23 July 2021. Luke is joined this week by Chris Levy of Aquila Super, a SMSF Specialist Accountant.  This week’s topic: SMSF, tax time and more. Chris and Luke offer their tips and tricks for making the most of your Self Managed Super Fund. 

Key highlights include:

  • What can you put in a SMSF?
  • With great flexibility, comes a great number of rules you need to follow
  • The ATO does check to make sure you’re meeting the rules and obligations
  • Tax efficiency is a big part of an SMSF too, making the most of deductions and franking credits at tax time – SMSFs require a tax return and audit
  • Changing ATO rules mean your SMSF tax return cannot be completed by the same company that does your SMSF audit 
  • Don’t be afraid to ask your accountant what they’re doing on this front
  • Where are the opportunities for SMSF trustees right now?
  • Who can use an SMSF?
  • There are very strict rules around the kinds of assets you have in your SMSF and what you do with them
  • There’s some good opportunities for self employed people, but talk to your account before you make decisions 
  • What can a specialist SMSF Accountant do for you?
  • Everyone has different goals and financial planning advice can help you achieve them more effectively, especially when you link different strategies
