Investing in property though a self-managed super fund (SMSF) has grown in popularity in recent years, particularly since it became possible for SMSFs to borrow money to fund a direct property purchase.
What are the advantages?
There are significant advantages to owning a property through a SMSF. First, your super fund will be taxed at 15 per cent, which is considerably lower than most people’s personal tax rates.
Second, your capital gains tax will also be discounted.
If the property is sold during the accumulation phase, the capital gains tax is calculated at a discounted rate.
If the asset is sold while the super fund is in its pension phase, you don’t have to pay any tax on the sale.
