Technically Speaking: COVID-19 and SMSFs with property

The health, social and economic impacts of the global COVID-19 pandemic have been far and wide and the SMSF sector is no different. The SMSF Association has worked with the Government, ATO and ASIC to provide some relief and guidance for the SMSF industry during this turbulent time. The next step is for the sector to apply these measures in a practical and appropriate way.

This edition of Technically Speaking, written by the Association’s Policy Manager, Franco Morelli, covers:

  • The SMSF landlord dilemma – rent, loan relief and the National Cabinet Rent Code
  • What about LRBAs?
  • Practical examples of the application of these relief measures.
