Discretionary Trusts
Things to watch out for

Our Discretionary Deeds are drafted and reviewed by TressCox Lawyers and the terms provide the maximum flexibility in respect of determination of income and streaming.

SMSF Borrowing
Things to watch out for

There are proposed changes to the tax treatment of borrowing arrangements in the form of new sections 67A & 67B which will replace the existing section 67(4A).

At this stage it is proposed that existing arrangements under section 67(4A) will be grandfathered unless there is a refinancing or fundamental change of the borrowing arrangement.

The proposed new borrowing rules provide for:

It is imperative that stamp duty considerations are made before the asset is acquired. Unfavourable stamp duty consequences can apply when the trust between the fund and the custodian collapses especially in respect of real estate purchased in South Australia and Queensland.

SMSFs - Transfers to new or additional trustees

Effective from 1 July 2010 there is a change to the definition of 'special trustee' in section 54 of the Duties Act. The new definition no longer includes a trustee of a self-managed superannuation fund.

What does this mean for your clients?

Care needs to be taken in circumstances where the new or additional trustee are the members of the fund and the assets of the fund comprise dutiable property.

We are currently liaising with Vale Legal Pty Limited to clarify the position in relation to this amendment and we will publish more information when it is to hand.

Pension Relief from the Drawdown Rules
Hot off the Press

The Federal Government has announced today that it will continue to support self-funded retirees by extending the drawdown relief currently provided for account-based superannuation pensions to the 2010-2011 year.

The drawdown relief will continue to in the form of a 50% reduction in the minimum payment amounts for pensions.

The change will require amendments to the SIS Regulations 1994 and the Retirement Savings Accounts Regulations 1997. These amendments will be made as soon as possible in the new financial year.

Our comprehensive Pension Implementation Packages have recently been reviewed by Vale Legal Pty Limited and are fully compliant with the current legislation.

Thank you from all of us

We hope that 2010 has been a happy and prosperous year for you.
