Tech Files: Getting money into super using small business CGT concessions

This paper was presented at the SMSF Association National Conference 2019 by Darren Wynen of Insyt Pty Ltd.

With the contributions landscape being turned on its head from 1 July 2017, the CGT cap presents an ideal opportunity for clients to boost their superannuation savings. However, a combination of the complexity of the conditions to access the concessions and the one-off nature of selling a business means that it is often difficult to clearly identify and assess opportunities to boosting superannuation using the CGT cap.

This paper (and accompanying National Conference workshop) will review the various strategies available for maximising the CGT cap, common mistakes made when determining eligibility to the concessions and whether the CGT cap trumps buying business premises using an SMSF.
