Implications of COVID-19 on SMSF property investments | Accurium

The end of the current financial year is known - 30 June 2020, but the end of the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic will roll into the next financial year. In this webinar we will focus on one aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic - the effect it has had on property investments held by self managed superannuation funds. There have been many compliance issues raised and a number of concessions provided. It's time to sort through the issues, the concessions, the relief measures and how they all tie into preparing 2020 and 2021 year end financial statements and getting through the annual audit.
During the webinar we will cover:
  • The rent relief measures and how they apply to property held by an SMSF;
  • Whether the structure to hold property, either directly or via an interposed entity affects the relief measures;
  • The relief measures available where the SMSF holds property via an LRBA;
  • Satisfying the requirement to record property assets at market value in 2020 financial statements.
  • What documentation should be prepared in preparation for the annual fund audit and if the ATO comes a knocking.
