Specialist only session – Wednesday 19 February

< Back to Conference homepage

Back by popular demand: Specialist only session

A hugely popular addition to the program in 2018 and 2019 and due to overwhelming demand we are pleased to offer this Specialist-only session again in 2020. Also based on member feedback, we are shifting this session to first thing on Day 1 of the Conference (Wednesday 19 February 2020).

This session is exclusively for SMSF Association Specialist (SSA/SSAud) members only.  

This exclusive Specialist-member benefit will provide you with in-depth analysis of SMSF legislation in a highly interactive, analytical discussion. The session assumes an elevated level of knowledge reflective of your designation as a Specialist Advisor/Specialist Auditor. It will examine the legislation as it results in practice, as well as considering how it should look to promote clarity, consistency and compliance.


Topic: Carrying on a business in an SMSF

This session aims to separate the ‘law’ from the ‘lore’ of when SMSFs can run a business.

It will examine:

  1. What case law says and what the ATO have said
  2. How to achieve your clients’ goals while clearly complying with all relevant laws
  3. Different structuring options for business-like activities and
  4. Most common mistakes.

This session will have a strong focus on real estate development businesses, however, it will also cover other types of businesses too.

Date: Wednesday 19 February 2020 – Day 1 of the Conference

Time: 8:15am – 10:15am

Presenter: Bryce Figot, Special Counsel, DBA Lawyers
