Tax implications of selling SMSF shares

I am 58, should I have an income portfolio AND a growth portfolio. Also what are the tax implications of selling shares within SMSF e.g. If I sell my Santos shares, is there a high CGT or (within the SMSF) is it taxed as a day trader would be?

Thanks.

Looking for US exposure

Could you please tell me which stocks in the ASX top 100 provide good US exposure? I know of BHP, QBE and PTM, but I can’t find the article listing any others.

Thanks.

US investment picks?

For one reason or another I have $US40k in a SMSF Macquarie account in the USA earning no interest. The reason for this is because I have been waiting for the Aussie dollar to drop and improve the conversion. I have come to believe that it will be another 6 months or more before it will be worthwhile to bring it back to Australia and reap the benefits of a lower AUD.

Can you please suggest/recommend where to invest this in the States – or better still, suggest a managed fund with a good track record that is relatively secure.

Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

ETP tax rules

Hi Tony,

I am interested in this article as I will receive an ETP as part of a redundancy package in 2014 – which, when included with my remuneration, will lead to a taxable income in excess of $300k. Will the ETP be included in determining whether my employer and salary sacrifice contributions are taxed at 30%?

Thanks.
