Evolution, SMSFs and BRP: How change is impacting this important asset class

Technical Summit 2021

It is now 12 years on since the ATO released its BRP ruling and since that time we have seen significant changes in the technology, economic and legislative landscape. As a result, there has been significant developments in the application of the BRP definition as well as the emergence of new issues and threats that professional advisers need to be aware of. This session looks at some of these evolutionary forces and explores how SMSFs are responding and adapting.

At the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Outline the definition of BRP and how changes in technology may impact the types of property that may qualify;
  • Describe the recent cases that may impact the decision to acquire BRP, and;
  • Explain how economic events and developments have impacted BRP as an asset class.
