2 WHO ARE THE 2020 GROUP? For those of you who don’t know us.. We are an affiliate partner of Starr Partners. We are an independent, free thinking,Multi disciplinary firm, made up of Accountants, Solicitors, Financial Advisors and other specialists.
5 SEMINAR PURPOSEThe purpose of this seminar is to educate you that you now have a choice to be able to create real wealth for your family using an SMSF. Surrounding ourselves with good advice and people who provide good advice is an important part of this process of achieving real choice and moving towards financial freedom.
6 KEY ISSUESWhy purchasing investments inside of superannuation is often a better fit – due to the significant tax advantages that exist – than the traditional way of purchasing assets outside of super in your own name, a company, or a trust.I will demonstrate 3 significant advantages. Lower tax, better cash flow, more safely protected investments.
7 KEY ISSUES CONT.We will provide details on how Superfund's and more specifically how SMSF’s can borrow.We will show you how an Average Australian Family with potentially as little as $100K in Super can leverage into the property market and how this property(s) may be a self sustaining investment that you may never pay any lump sum tax on.
8 AUSSIE LOVE AFFAIR WITH PROPERTY As Australians, we tend to have a love affair with property. We prefer bricks and mortar to equities, it makes us feel safer. For example, how many of us avoid salary sacrificing into super because we don’t have true control of our super.We know that contributing to super is a good thing but its a hard thing to force ourselves to do when our super is locked into the market and the market is so erratic.
9 AUSSIE LOVE AFFAIR WITH PROPERTY We can have our cake and eat it too by owning property in our own family super fund.How many of you knew you could buy property in your SMSF and borrow against the security of that property?As a result, we have been explaining the structures and strategies surrounding SMSF borrowing for Property to Australian Families for almost 4 years now.
10 HOW CAN YOUR CLIENTS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THESE AMENDMENTS? By taking control of their super and setting up a Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF).Buying property through your SMSF not only enables them to leverage their current superannuation assets, it also provides the added benefits of both asset protection and tax efficiency.
11 BENEFITS OF AN SMSF CONTROL A SMSF is the clients very own super fund in which they are in control of. They have the cheque book and with the help of their accountant or advisor run the fund and make decisions on suitable investments.
12 ASSET PROTECTIONAssets in a Superannuation fund can protect those assets from commercial and litigation risks that may otherwise face the members.
13 WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT SMSF’S BEING ABLE TO BORROW TO INVEST IN PROPERTY? The simple answers are:Is that you now don’t need to have the available cash in your fund to obtain an interest in a long term investment asset class such as property. Up until the recent changes in SIS, many superannuation portfolios were devoid of the many potential benefits of direct property investment due to their inability to borrow property.
14 As a result, many Australians have had no choice but to invest in real estate outside of the tax-efficient superannuation domain and had lacked the ability for their superannuation portfolio to potentially generate greater returns through a geared SMSF investment strategy.SMSFs may now borrow up to 75% for some property purchases. By super gearing the real rate of return will increase. For example, a 5% yield and 5% capital growth pa equates to a real gross return of 40% pa in your SMSF.
15 HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?The choice of property is purchased in name of the trustee of a bare trust that is setup with the client in control as trustee Directors.This trust is the legal owner of the property. The SMSF is of course the beneficial (or real) owner of the property.

17 LEGAL ISSUESThe Lender who lends your SMSF the funds is granted a charge over the SMSF’s beneficial interest in the property, this is a limited recourse loan and does not subject other property or assets as security for the loan.
18 CASE STUDYJames is 45 years old and earns $70K p/a and his Industry Super Fund balance is currently $50K. Jill, James’ wife, is also 45 and earns $30K p/a. Her industry superfund balance is also at approximately $50K.
19 They wish to purchase an Investment Property (Cost $350K) James & Jill’s Property Options1: Negative Gearing or 2: Limited RecourseScenarioProperty is sold in 10 years for $700,000The FactsNegative Gearing Effect: Tax payable on sale: $100,000LR Effect: Tax payable on sale: Nil
20 THE RESULTS$100K better off by choosing option 2 if property is sold after age 55.
22 SHARES VERSUS PROPERTY Based upon unbiased opinion i.e. shares and property return the same over the longer term, let’s take a look at the following scenario:You take $1 of superannuation as secure leverage to purchase property, the bank lends you an additional say $3, so you buy a $4 property. In 10 years the property doubles, you take your $8 and pay the bank back $3 and you are left with $5. you have turned your $1 into $5 a 500% return over 10 years.
23 Let’s compare and contrast this with shares, where the bank/financier will only lend dollar for dollar against the security of shares.So, you are able to buy $2 worth of equities, and they double in 10 years and you are left with $4, you then pay the bank back the $1 you owe it. You are left with $3.You can clearly see that it is the leverage by using a long term secure growth asset such as property that has provided up to an additional 200% return on our money in this example.
24 Get more skin in the game! With the purchase of a long term growth asset of your choice, by taking control of your existing super.Increase the real rate of return on your super by leveraging. Super gearing rather than negative gearing is good debt. Take on good debt in super as opposed to negative gearing, where you fund a loss.
25 Let someone else pay off your loan Let someone else pay off your loan. Use a combination of the rent on the property and your SGL (if a PAYG earner) to pay off the property. Salary Sacrifice for further benefits and to build a surplus of cash in the fund and continue to accumulate suitable assets in a SMSF.Leveraging with Property in your super fund can be substantially better than leveraging into equities, based on both asset classes achieving the same positive return. Banks will lend at a higher LVR for property. Pay a lower than 15% tax rate on super contributions, even nil.
26 Quarantine any capital gains on investment assets to nil Quarantine any capital gains on investment assets to nil. Purchase now and sell after age 55, no tax. There is a maximum of 10% capital gains tax on the sale of your property if it is held for over 12 months in the accumulation phase i.e. sell prior to age 55.Build up a portfolio of assets that will work for you in retirement – no tax on the earnings or growth of assets held in super after age 55.

28 BENEFITS OF AN SMSFBy salary sacrificing into your SMSF, you effectively receive a 100% tax deduction at your full marginal rate of tax on contributions made up to your contributions cap (note: salary sacrifice contributions may be subject to up to 15% tax.The interest expense along with other property related expenses including any depreciation allowance become 100% tax deductible within the superannuation fund and may potentially reduce the amount of your 15% contribution tax to NIL. This is not possible in a non SMSF super structure.
29 MORE BENEFITS OF AN SMSF You may potentially receive a more tax effective retirement income as compared to property investment held outside of superannuation as once you are over the age of 60, there is ZERO TAX on withdrawals and pension income from your superannuation;Your SMSF, as the beneficial owner of the property asset, enjoys the Land Tax Free Threshold in each Australian State.
