  1. Hi Liam,
    What if the couple had already set up a discretionary trust , would they need to set up another unit trust in order for the super to be paid into that trust to then purchased the property? Or how can a discretionary trust act as a unit trust in the form of a self managed super fund?


    • You cannot in my opinion have your SMSF involved in your discretionary trust. You would need a new Unit Trust where the SMSF and your Discretionary trust buy units. Be careful as such a Trust is very limited in what it can do.

    In the event a Superfund and a trust both controlled by me buy a property in partnership 50:50 does 100 percent of the property get included in the calculation of my $6million net asset value cap for cgt small business tax exemptions?
