SMSF specialists attending this year’s National Conference will get the opportunity to be fully briefed on the recent changes to superannuation, many of which take effect from 1 July 2017.

SMSF Association Managing Director Andrea Slattery says: “This year’s National Conference, from 15-17 February, has rightly put a great deal of emphasis on the changes to superannuation, and the record number of delegates (about 1650) attending indicates it was the right decision.

“Superannuation fund members are now turning their attention to what strategies they need to undertake to comply with the changes, and they need to be able to turn to their specialist advisors and be confident they are getting the right advice.

“Key issues include complying with the new $1.6 million transfer balance cap, removal of tax concessions for transition to retirement pensions, and capital gains tax (CGT) relief for assets affected by the changes.

“These involve complex areas of law and strategies that will be covered off over the three days of the conference.”

Other conference highlights include the Thought Leadership Breakfast, which boasts the compelling subject, “Can super be trusted”, and a plenary session that has spokespeople from Treasury, the ATO and ASIC looking at the issue, “Yes, the SMSF sector is regulated”.
