Recorded Webinar: Auditor Scrutiny of SMSFs Involved in Property Development


30th July 2019

Duration:  approx. 2 hours

SMSFs can engage in property development, but the key to compliance is on how the investment occurs. Contraventions can easily ensue and it is necessary for the auditor to be on top when it happens. This session looks at the key issues, including:

  • Structuring the deal - its relevance to audit

  • Can a SMSF run a business? - Operation of TR 93/17

  • Dealing at arm’s length with other entities - practical problems for property development and SMSFs

  • Establishing whether an SMSF is able to borrow funds for property development

  • Borrowing requirements in acquiring real estate - evaluation by auditor

  • Evaluating the requirement for a limited recourse borrowing arrangement

  • Valuing a development part way through
