Is this allowed?

My daughter is in the process of selling the unit where she now lives to move to a bigger house.

I want to buy the property at market value outright from the pension fund of my SMSF which I jointly hold with my wife. It will form part of our portfolio in the SMSF and we will rent it through an agent at market value to a third party not related or known to us.

Am I doing this within the rules of the SMSF?

Interest rate securities

There is a growing rage of interest rate securities available which the ASX divides into separate classes e.g. hybrid type securities, convertible note, floating interest etc.

Could you please explain these classes and the pro’s and cons of each?

Also, I understood AGB’s were to have been tradeable on the ASX in March but I cannot find any AGB’s listed. Could you please advise how an SMSF can buy AGB’s and whether you would recommend an AGB over say a Bank issued interest rate security?

Thanks.

Changes to super

I reference your recent article Still a super slug – if ever legislated. Can you please explain further your comment that if you purchased assets prior to 1 July 2024 and if they are supporting a pension, they will remain free of capital gains tax. I thought the $100,000 threshold referred to all gains related to the sale of assets purchased after 5 April 2013, if when added to income breached the $100,000 threshold. Thanks

Buying off the plan.

I am looking to buy a property in my SMSF off the plan – am I able to pay the deposit by an indemnity guarantee or deposit bond or should it be paid in cash?
