Your Conference Compass: Hit the ground running with this Legs & Regs update

National Conference 2020

From an SMSF legislation perspective, 2019 was a very challenging year – at the start of 2019, with a change in government looming, our focus was on a very different set of legislative policies, and then, when the Government was re-elected, our attention immediately switched to those measures which had lapsed with the calling of the Federal Election and measures announced in this year’s Federal Budget.

This session will provide a high level stocktake of the new and re-introduced measures most relevant to SMSFs which, in recent times, have either been passed into law or introduced into the parliament.

We will also preview the Government’s 2020 SMSF policy agenda, provide a high level overview of other key regulatory developments and will signpost the sessions throughout the conference which will provide further detail.

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

  • Identify key legislative changes impacting on SMSFs;
  • Explain recent ATO campaigns and technical communications relevant to SMSFs;
  • Understand the Government’s 2020 SMSF policy agenda, and;
  • Identify other conference sessions which will provide further detail.
