Complex Superannuation Strategies

CGT Relief and Borrowing in super

CGT Rollover Relief

When selling a business there may be some tax concessions that you can take advantage of. One concession is the ability to contribute an assessable capital gain amount from the sale of the business to your super fund, which will eliminate the tax paid on this amount. There is a lifetime limit as well as other specific criteria that must be met for this concession to apply and specialist tax advice is recommended.

Borrowing in Super

Super funds are generally prohibited from borrowing money. However, funds may be borrowed under limited circumstances and the rules must be strictly followed.

This includes allowing a self-managed super fund to borrow to purchase investments under certain circumstances known as limited recourse borrowing. The rules are complex and professional advice is again recommended.
