New rules for NALI and NALE | Accurium

The amendments to the Non Arm's Length Income (NALI) provisions broaden their application for SMSFs. From 1 July 2018, the concept of Non Arm's Length Expense (NALE) has also been introduced. The NALI and NALE rules have greater application to SMSFs due to the many related party transactions that can occur.
The ATO issued a draft Law Companion Ruling (LCR) 2019/D3 on the application of the new NALE rules for SMSFs, as well as Practical Compliance Guideline (PCG) 2019/D6, which effectively provided a transitional period of application of the new NALE rules in relation to general expenses of an SMSF to 30 June 2020.
The ATO is yet to finalise the draft LCR and has announced that the PCG will be extended until 30 June 2021. This webinar will review the draft LCR, the PCG and the implications for SMSFs who engage related parties, as well as what actions SMSFs may need to take when dealing with a related party to ensure that they are not caught by the new NALE rules.
